Tommy Fury was able to keep his dream of facing YouTuber now Boxer Jake Paul alive with a unanimous decision victory over Anthony Taylor in the Showtime Pay-Per-View opener on Jake Paul Vs Tyron Woodley Undercard on Sunday night at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tommy Fury, Tyson Fury’s younger brother was able to dominate Anthony Taylor over 4 rounds to win a unanimous decision with all three judges scoring the fight for Fury – Stacy Blevins (40-36), Dana DePaolo (40-36) and Phil Rogers (40-36).
Taylor, who is a professional MMA fighter had said so much during the build up but found it difficult landing punches on the taller Fury, who couldn’t use his 6.4 feet height to his advantage. Taylor, at 5.7 Feet struggled all through the four round bout.
Taylor last fought an MMA fight in January 2020 in the 155 Pound (Lightweight division). He however had to Ballon up to 175 pounds (Boxing’s Light Heavyweight limit) for the gift against Fury. The loss leaves him 0 – 2 in Professional Boxing.
Taylor made his Boxing Pro debut back in 2017, when he lost a split Decision to Donte Stubbs at The Hangar in Costa, Mesa California. Taylor was a step up in competition for Fury, who had mostly face fighters with embarrassing boxing records.
Fury started the fight with a big right hand 20 seconds into the fight but missed Taylor then connected a right hand before Fury landed a jab, following it up with a right hand. Taylor and Fury both exchanged right hands before Fury backed Taylor up with an uppercut. Fury then connected a big right hand and wobbled him with a two punch combination before the round ended.
Fury missed a lot in the third and wasn’t as accurate as he was in the first two. Taylor’s legs got tangled and he fell to the bottom rope. Taylor was caught with a big right in the fourth but he survived that and did well to finish the fight.
