Boxer who's shared ring with Jake Paul and Tommy Fury says one boxer will absolutely dominate fight
| Last updated
A boxer who has shared the ring with both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury has said that one fighter will dominate the long-awaited bout.
The first fight was originally scheduled for December 2021, but Fury withdrew due to medical reasons just a week beforehand.
A second date for August last year was also canned, as Fury claimed that visa issues prevented him from entering the US.
As the fight has been such a long time coming, fans will be hoping for a closely fought and entertaining encounter come the weekend.
But Anthony Taylor, an MMA star who has also crossed over to boxing, has said there is only going to be one winner in Saudi Arabia.
Taylor somewhat shot to fame as one of Paul's sparring partners in 2021, and faced Fury in a fight later that year - which he lost on points.
Obviously, Taylor has got a good sense of how Fury fights as he faced him in the ring, and that has left him with no doubt as to who will claim the belt come Sunday.
Speaking to The Sun, Taylor said: "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."
He continued: "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."
The fight has very much been labelled a 50/50 on paper by a lot of pundits, something that has angered Fury's camp.
But Taylor told The Sun that it is Paul who should be angered by those odds, stating once again that Fury has 'no ring IQ'.
He added: "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."
