The morning of this Friday, November 5, that the former player of the NBA, Deron willians will fight with Jake paul in boxing.

It wasn’t long ago that Deron Williams dominated the NBA court, but he has been out of the league since 2016-17 and has turned his attention to boxing ever since. Williams appears to be in line for a major boxing appearance on the Jake Paul-Tommy Fury undercard on Dec. 18, according to The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania.

A potential opponent for Williams? That would be legendary NFL running back Frank Gore, who is third on the all-time rushing list.

Gore actually played for the New York Jets last season, but was not drafted for the 2021 campaign after hoping to sign with a team. While he has not officially retired, he has also focused on boxing and would be an intriguing opponent for Deron Williams in this undercard fight.

The fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury is scheduled to take place in Tampa, Florida. There is a lot of excitement surrounding this matchup as both fighters seek to maintain an impeccable record. Paul is 4-0 in his boxing career, while Fury, Tyson Fury’s half brother, is 7-0 as a professional boxer.

Adding a Deron Williams vs. Frank Gore fight could certainly bring more eyes to the event. Who knows how good the fight would be, but just having these two names involved could spark fan interest.
