“Jake Paul Doesn’t Come to My Mind Once”- Tommy Fury Claims to Knock Out Anthony Taylor

Published 08/26/2021, 2:55 PM EDT


Despite a dispute with ‘The Problem Child’, Tommy Fury claims to have his complete focus on Anthony Taylor, whom he envisions to knockout out on Sunday night in the undercard of Paul vs Woodley. Making his USA debut on Aug 29, Fury will look to go 7-0 against his MMA veteran opponent.

Furthermore, Taylor’s boxing record is 0-1 which clearly makes him an underdog against the unbeaten Tommy Fury. However, this major contrast didn’t distract Fury from preparing hard for the bout. He still might have his eyes on a potential scrap against Jake Paul. But only after he surpasses Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor.

While Taylor accused the Brit boxer of overlooking him for Jake Paul, Tommy Fury detailed his overview on the whole scenario in the official press conference of Woodley vs Paul.

‘TNT’ said, “I just wanna say one thing if this man thinks I overlooked him, he is very wrong. I am training like I have got shot at all these belts on Sunday night. I have put myself away for eight weeks. Jake Paul doesn’t come to my mind once. I haven’t thought about him, I don’t think about him.”

“The only man I thought about and I have been thinking about in this whole training camp is Anthony Taylor. Sunday night I will get the job done and whatever else lies ahead. We can think about them but until then this an is getting knocked out cold.”

On winning the show, Fury will rightly leap towards a bigger bout. However, he will still lack a legitimate name on his resume. None of his opponents have had any major credentials of pro boxing. So, a scrap against Jake Paul might be the key.

Tommy Fury is looking to grab hold of the professional boxers, the same goal that Jake Paul seems to possess. Moreover, both men look favorable to outclass their upcoming opponents in the ring. Anthony Taylor and Tyron Woodley are MMA elites with almost no accolades to tout as pro boxers. So Fury and Paul can have an easy night to remain undefeated.

After that, they might lock horns in a major collision. Paul and Fury have been rivals for a long time and have major followings on social media. So, it makes sense to put the young gunners against each other. But a shock defeat on either side can shatter all the plans of their matchup. Thus, it all comes down to Sunday night before we predict anything for the future.
