With Scott Gilfoid: Odds punters strongly believe a rematch between British homegrown fighter Tommy Fury and Youtuber Jake Paul will take place after their clash last Sunday night in Saudi Arabia looked like a mixed bag athletics and wrestling competition, thanks to Fury’s awful running and running. If you think Tyson Fury is a spoiler of the first order, Tommy was next level.
The odds have Fury-Paul happening, with the next highest possible being a Jake-KSI match-up. Jake and Tommy already said in the ring last Sunday night that they want an immediate rematch, so it’s a no-brainer to pick this match as the possible next match for the two.
Jake Paul (6-1, 4 KOs) lost an eight-round split decision to the more experienced Tommy (9-0, 4 KOs), but he’s the first to admit he got the fight wrong.
Why Jake Paul shouldn’t give Tommy Fury a rematch
The 26-year-old Paul looked like he hadn’t studied Tommy’s previous fights to be ready for all the movement and tightening he would do in the fight. Tommy ALWAYS holds a lot and moves around. He’s like a bulkier version of super middleweight Lerrone Richards, but with a much greater tendency to be held and moved by him.
To his credit, Lerrone Richards doesn’t snap or move nearly as much as Tommy Fury, but he’s hard to fight because of the movement he uses.
Tommy is on another level with all the holding and movement he does, so Jake has to think about whether it’s a wise move to fight him again because it takes an experienced fighter to deal with this level of a spoiler.
23 year old Tommy Fury is a next level spoiler of the first order and deal with these kind of nasty fights, you know what you are doing to beat the non stop hold and run from a runner/fighter like him.
“I think I deserve this rematch. It was a close match. I don’t know if I agree with the judges. I got a 10-8 round twice [in 6th and 8th]Jake Paul told Top Rank Boxing moments after his loss to Tommy Fury.
“We can bring it back because I think we put on an amazing show for the fans. I felt bad. I got sick twice in the game and injured my hand. Felt a little flat. It wasn’t my best performance. 100%, let’s bring it back.
What Jake needs to do is dump his coach and get someone who knows how to deal with runners and grapplers like Tommy before giving him a rematch.
If you’re Jake, you should go in the direction of fighting KSI and leave Tommy to the more experienced fighters, not that he’s going to bother fighting any of them because he’s clearly not going to fight any of the top cruiserweights. . Tommy will be fired up if he fights someone in the top 15.
Chisora: Jake Paul won’t beat Tommy Fury in rematch
“I don’t know if the rematch is on, but if it is on, we’ll have it in Saudi Arabia,” Derek Chisora told Secondsout about the Fury vs. Paul rematch. “The days in Vegas are over.”
“No,” Chisora said when asked if Jake Paul could call himself a boxer now that he fought a real boxer in Tommy Fury. “The problem with Jake Paul is that he’s the boss and everyone around him is a yes man.
“He pays everyone and tells them what to do. Until he gets rid of this s**t, he will never be a professional fighter because of the way he punched. It’s a heavy hand if he had a double jab and threw right up the middle, yes.
“But every time he would dig through the floor and look for these big swings for no reason. So far, I don’t think so,” Chisora said when asked if Jake Paul can beat Tommy Fury if he has a rematch.
