Tommy Fury (9-0, 4 KOs), a rising light heavyweight prospect, is confident that he can stop Jake Paul in the second round of their fight.
Last Sunday in Saudi Arabia, Fury defeated Paul by split decision after surviving a late knockdown. (6-1, 4 KOs). Paul received a score of 75–74, and Fury received two totals of 76–73.
It had taken two years for them to meet finally. They were supposed to battle in 2021, but Fury pulled out due to an injury sustained during training camp. Then again, Fury was unable to proceed after being refused entry into the United States a year later.
Paul has the option of using an immediate rematch clause while he considers his alternatives. And Fury is more than willing to engage in a second fight with his arch-rival.
"The rematch is something that I'm definitely wanting because I believe in the rematch I will stop him. You know [in] the first fight I've never been eight rounds before so you're just a bit weary of what's in your tank and how the fight is going to go. But I've now been in the ring with him once, I know what to expect," Fury told Good Morning Britian.
Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, wishes to see Tommy Fury rematch Paul or take on Logan Paul, Logan's older brother.
"He did a fantastic job. The world media, the world’s biggest stars, [all] came to see it. It was fantastic. I expected Tommy to knock him out, to be quite honestly quite comfortably, but Jake was better than I thought he’d be, so fair play to Jake Paul. [Tommy will] be headlining now forever. I’d like to see him fight a rematch with Jake Paul and fight Logan, his brother," Tyson Fury said.
