After months of back-and-forth, both fighters stepped into the ring to prove their mettle. The professional cruiserweight crossover event was billed as “Judgement Day”. However, even though going into the fight, Tommy Fury was the clear favorite, he couldn’t live up to the expectations and received criticism for his performance. ‘TNT’ won the fight via majority decision, though it was later changed to be a victory by a unanimous decision after an error in calculation was found.
