Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder was ringside on Sunday in Saudi Arabia, to watch the cruiserweight grudge match between rivals Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.

Fury (9-0, 4 KOs) upset the odds by winning an eight-round split decision to hand Paul (6-1, 4 KOs) his first career defeat.

Referee Hector Afu was heavily involved in the action. 

He took away a point from Paul for hitting behind the head, and also docked Fury a point for holding.

Fury suffered a flash knockdown in the eighth and final round, after being struck by a hard left jab, but he still banked enough rounds to win on two of the official cards.

The scores were 75-74 Paul, and two tallies of 76-73 for Fury.

Wilder did not agree with scores. He felt Paul had done enough to win with the final round knockdown.

He was also angered by the point deduction given to Paul. He says Afu had never given Paul any prior warnings and simply moved forward to an unexpected point deduction.

“I think Jake got that one,” Wilder said to Fight Hub TV. “That referee, that was an immature point taken. I think Jake Paul needed that knockdown and when he did it evened it out. I think he only gave it to Fury because of the point taken. It was an immature point, the referee is supposed to give him at least three warnings, he gave him no warnings - get out of here.”
