‘That script was fraudulent’: Fighters react to Tommy Fury’s split call over Jake Paul

26 days ago MMA Fighting

Jake Paul is no longer an undefeated boxer after Tommy Fury outboxed him over eight rounds to capture a split decision.

Two judges scored the fight for Fury via 76-73 scores, while one dissented for Fury by a 75-74 score.

Paul knocked down Fury in the eighth and final round of the cruiserweight fight in Saudi Arabia, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Fury’s superior output and punching accuracy. Both fighters were deducted a point for repeated head clashes that left Fury with a cut over his left eye.

Paul immediately asked to exercise a rematch clause in his contract with Fury, setting the table for a rematch.

Here’s what fighters had to say about Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury on Sunday.

Honestly I would destroy both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury

They gave it to right guy, both fought hard and served themselves well. #PaulFury— Teddy Atlas (@TeddyAtlasReal) February 26, 2023

I was right. This fight went exactly on script because this is in code. The opposite of everything written is what was orchestrated to happen. Went off without a hitch.

Perfectly executed fight fixing. pic.twitter.com/dGtUHTQ55s— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) February 26, 2023

Man you know Jake is regretting that bet right about now #PaulFury— Wonderboy (@WonderboyMMA) February 26, 2023

There’s a lot of room for growth for Paul. I felt Tyson Fury was edging it out as well. These guys both made a nice bag! #PaulFury— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) February 26, 2023

That was scored correctly. At least for the 2 judges. #PaulVsFury— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) February 26, 2023
