EBANIE BRIDGES has questioned whether anyone is picking Tommy Fury to beat Jake Paul this weekend.
YouTube sensation Paul, 26, will meet Love Island star Fury, 23, in Saudi Arabia on Sunday evening.
Paul, who boasts a 6-0 record, is the slight favourite with the bookies despite this being his first contest against a recognised professional boxer.
His previous wins have come against YouTuber AnEsonGib, basketball player Nate Robinson, and MMA stars Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.
Meanwhile, Fury has won all eight of his eight pro bouts but is yet to come up against a noteworthy fighter.
And while Fury has boxing pedigree by association in the form of world heavyweight champion Tyson, Bridges is surprised by the number of people picking Paul to win.

Speaking on Twitter, she said: "Does anyone think Tommy Fury is going to beat Jake Paul?
"I haven’t spoke to anyone backing Tommy yet… Lol."
Paul is so confident he will steam through Fury that he is already lining up UFC legend Nate Diaz as his next opponent.
Speaking on The MMA Hour, he said: "I think they're ready [Diaz and his team]. I'm getting through Sunday and we're going to line that one up, ASAP.

"Yeah, I think that's next. I think that's what the fans want, and that's who I want.
"There's been a lot of talk back and forth, we've said our stuff, but it's time to get down to business."
Meanwhile, Fury has confirmed he wants to spend time with his family after securing a win over Paul.
His partner Molly-Mae Hague gave birth to their daughter, Bambi, last month.
When discussing the aftermath of a potential win, Fury said: "I just want to knock this man out, shut him up and come back home to my family and spend some much needed family time.
"I’m not really interested in all the glitz and the glamour of what comes with beating Jake Paul. I’m not really interested in that.
"I’ve got a job to do, I’ll get that done, come back and see my little girl and spend some nice time at home."
