Light heavyweight prospect Tommy Fury (9-0, 4 KOs) believes that he will secure a stoppage victory over Jake Paul if a rematch takes place.
Last Sunday in Saudi Arabia, Fury overcame a late knockdown to win an eight round split decision win over Paul (6-1, 4 KOs).
The scores were 75-74 Paul and two tallies of 76-73 for Fury.
Their encounter was two years in the making. Back in 2021, they were scheduled to fight and Fury withdrew with a training camp injury. A year later, Fury was unable to go forward after being denied entry into the United States.
Paul, who is currently mulling his options, has the ability to exercise an immediate rematch clause.
And Fury is more than ready to have a second the fight with his rival.
"The rematch is something that I'm definitely wanting because I believe in the rematch I will stop him. You know [in] the first fight I've never been eight rounds before so you're just a bit weary of what's in your tank and how the fight is going to go. But I've now been in the ring with him once, I know what to expect," Fury told Good Morning Britian.
Tommy Fury's older brother, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, wants to see his brother have a rematch with Paul or face older brother Logan Paul.
"He did a fantastic job. The world media, the world’s biggest stars, [all] came to see it. It was fantastic. I expected Tommy to knock him out, to be quite honestly quite comfortably, but Jake was better than I thought he’d be, so fair play to Jake Paul. [Tommy will] be headlining now forever. I’d like to see him fight a rematch with Jake Paul and fight Logan, his brother," Tyson Fury said.
