Manchester’s Tommy Fury won his US boxing debut last night and remained undefeated after a unanimous decision against Anthony Taylor.
The former Love Island star, who is the younger brother of two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is now in hot pursuit of Jake Paul, who beat Tyron Woodley in the main event last night.
Fury’s opponent, who is Jake Paul’s sparring partner, made it a tough night for Tommy who had to settle for a points victory despite never being in trouble over four rounds.
Taylor, who was significantly smaller than Fury, was regularly in defensive mode and looked determined just get to the final bell from the first round.
It was frustrating for Tommy, who struggled to get shots off against the chaotic and much smaller Taylor – but there was no doubt who the winner was when the final bell rang.
The fight was reduced to a four-rounder from a six-rounder on short notice – Fury has never been beyond the fourth round in his short career yet.
The judges scored the fight 40-36 to Fury, extending his unbeaten record to seven fights.
