Tommy Fury secured the biggest win of the professional boxing career as he beats Jake Paul by decision in their highly anticipated fight in Saudi Arabia. Fury did enough to win the fight on the scorecards, despite suffering a scare in the final round as he was knocked down by Paul.
Tommy Fury Beats Jake Paul With Tight Split Decision Victory
Tommy Fury can celebrate as he beats bitter rival Jake Paul by split decision tonight in their highly anticipated boxing grudge match.
Fury was well in control of the fight for the majority of the eight rounds and is the deserved winner of the fight. However, the Englishman didn’t have it all his own way as ‘The Problem Child’ secured a knockdown in the final round. Fury wasn’t hurt by the shot Paul landed, but his gloves did touch the canvas for a brief second which means it was a legitimate knockdown.
The 23-year-old was in fact the underdog with the best offshore sportsbooks heading into the fight, but he defied those odds and beat his American rival, who was a huge favorite with the best offshore gambling sites, with relative ease.
It seems that the boxing community on Twitter are glad that the right man won the fight. Too many times in boxing there seems to be dodgy decision or some form of slight corruption when it comes to judges’ scorecards and who ultimately won the fight.
That was the fear tonight as MC Michael Buffer announced it was a split decision, but thankfully the right man got the nod and Fury can travel home to the UK with the biggest win of his career under his belt.

Nothing but respect for Jake Paul and everything he’s achieved in his life. Kid is a grafter. But can we stop calling him a boxer now? He’s just faced a novice one and got exposed. Gave him two rounds at best. Think he should go fight @KSI and make a fortune. #boxing #PaulFury

People dying to slag Tommy he’s 23 still learning. The pressure he was under tonight was immense and I don’t care what anyone says he soundly outboxed a tough white collar boxer in Jake Paul. Jake should fight KSI next in the celebrity white collar world.
