Fury was the busiest fighter… throwing 302 punches, with 88 landings. Paul threw 157 punches and landed on 49.
It was a split decision on the judge’s scorecards…one judge had Jake ahead by one point. The other two judges had Tommy winning, and that was the difference.
Tommy was emotional after the match, saying that the feud with Paul has dominated the last two years of his life. Fury also said that now he has made a name for himself … coming out of the shadow of his brother Tyson, heavyweight champion.
“Tonight I made my own legacy. I am Tommy Fury.”
During his post-fight interview, Paul, who has accepted defeat but also made it clear that he dealt with injury and illness during camp, made it clear that he intends to exercise the rematch clause in his contract. Tommy also looked down and told Jake to do it.
Once Jake returned to his locker room, he sent a message to his followers on social media, promising to return.
