Jake Paul Loses 8-Round Split Decision To Tommy Fury
Jake Paul has finally met his match — the YouTuber-turned-boxing star just lost to Tommy Fury in an 8-round decision in Saudi Arabia.
After years of trash talk, the men finally met in the boxing ring … and beat the hell out of each other over the course of 24 minutes.
26-year-old Jake and 23-year-old Tommy had their moments … both landing big shots throughout the fight. In the 8th round, Paul landed a jab that sent Fury to the canvas. TF quickly returned to his feet.

It was a split decision on the judge’s scorecards … one judge had Jake ahead by a point. The other two judges had Tommy winning, and that was the difference.
Tommy didn’t have a rematch clause in his contract, but Jake did … meaning The Problem Child can now force Tommy to run it back.
And, after the fight, that’s exactly what Paul said he planned to do. Tommy also made it clear he is very open to fighting once again.
Tommy was emotional after the match, saying the feud with Paul has dominated the last two years of his life. Fury also said he now has made a name for himself … stepping out of his heavyweight champion brother Tyson’s shadow.
The loss now brings Paul’s pro record to 6-1 … and Fury’s to 9-0.
