Paul lost against Fury in a controversial decision
In the most-anticipated bout between amateur boxers in history, Tommy Fury won by split decision over Jake Paul.
Fury was the more active fighter, striking with greater precision and demonstrating his boxing fundamentals.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul knocked out the brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in the eighth round.
Paul received a score of 75–74 from one judge, while Fury received a score of 76–73 from the other two.
Fury stated on BT Sport, “For the past two years this is all that has consumed my life.” I made my own legacy tonight, despite everyone’s belief that I was fleeing in fear. This is my first main event, and if he wants a rematch, bring it on. I’m going to get bigger and better.”
Paul, on the other hand, stated, “I lost my first professional fight in seven games.” With all due respect, Tommy won. Don’t look at my wins; look at my losses. It is what it is, and that is the world of boxing. I don’t know if I agree with the judges; it is what it is.
Many famous people from the entertainment and sports industries were there, and many more watched the eight-round fight at home.
Famous people gathered in Riyadh’s open-air Diriyah Arena, including boxer Mike Tyson and footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
