Boxer who's shared ring with Jake Paul and Tommy Fury reveals who will absolutely dominate fight
| Last updated
A boxer who has shared the ring with both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury has revealed who he thinks will dominate the fight this weekend.
After both parties were involved in on-and-off negotiations, the much-anticipated bout will finally happen this weekend in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Originally, they were meant to fight in December 2021 but Fury pulled out due to medical reasons.
Last August, a scheduled fight was again postponed after Fury experienced visa issues.
Ahead of this weekend’s bout, MMA star Anthony Taylor has claimed which boxer will dominate.
Taylor was Paul’s sparring partner in 2021 and faced Fury in a fight later that year, in which he lost on points.
He told The Sun: “Jake is just going to outbox Tommy. He’s just a far better boxer.
“Jake is going to control him with his countering. Jake is more flexible and more fluid than Tommy, he’s got a higher ring IQ.
“Jake is going to dominate Tommy, who knows? I can see a possible knockdown by Jake but I’ve got Jake winning by unanimous decision.”

Taylor added: “Jake is just a harder worker than Tommy. We see him putting in the work and we actually see it inside the ring.
“I’m not trying to say nothing bad about Tommy, he’s also a boxer and training hard but we haven’t seen a growth from Tommy.
“We haven’t seen a change nor an improvement, it’s just been the same Tommy Fury.”
Taylor went on to say that Fury has zero ring IQ.
He continued: “All he does is throw wild punches, he doesn’t set nothing up, he just has long limbs, that’s it.
“If you think Tommy’s going to win, bet your money he’s gonna win. If you’re so confident, put $1,000 down.”
Who will win between Paul and Fury? Only time will tell.
