Tommy Fury is best known for being the half-brother of the best heavyweight boxer on the planet, Tyson Fury. But, he rose to superstar status as a member of Season 5 on the television show Love Island.
Fury came into Sunday night at 6-0 as a professional boxer. He fought Anthony Taylor, a former mixed martial artist.
Fury won his fight vs. Taylor via decision. He dominated from the opening bell to the finish, but it also left some questions. The fight only went four rounds and most expected Fury, the much bigger and more experienced fighter, to knock Taylor out and he didn't even put him on the canvas once.
Either way, Fury and Paul had a face-to-face in the locker room following Paul's win over Woodley, seemingly setting the stage for their potential fight.
Jake Paul won on Sunday. He beat a more experienced fighter in Tyron Woodley and got some good shots in. But, I left with more questions that I did answers.
I think it was clear to most that watched that Woodley, not Paul, was in control of the fight for most rounds. Woodley was taking the fight to Paul, who was trying to pick his spots and counter punch and land combinations.
The problem for Woodley was he didn't press the issue enough. When he threw punches, he frustrated Paul. But, he wasn't active enough to win the fight. Give Jake Paul credit for having a game plan and sticking to it.
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury odds are interesting because neither were overly impressive on Sunday night, but for some reason, Fury comes in as the favorite despite Paul getting the biggest win of his career.
