Deontay Wilder thinks Jake Paul deserved to beat Tommy Fury

Deontay Wilder thinks Jake Paul deserved to beat Tommy Fury
The American has backed his compatriot after Sunday’s fight.

Deontay Wilder has claimed that Jake Paul should have won the fight against Tommy Fury and was actually robbed of the victory by the judges.

Fury won the match on a split decision in Saudi Arabia after the pair had been feuding online for many years. The Englishman was knocked out in the final round but still won the fight.

Fury was docked a point for holding during the fight, whilst Paul was docked one for punching Fury in the back of the head. Wilder has labelled that as an ‘immature’ decision from the referee Hector Afu.

Wilder has a history with the Fury family after he faced Tyson Fury in the Middle East and was beaten, losing his title as heavyweight champion of the world.

He told Fight Hub TV: ‘I think Jake got that one. It was an immature point. The referee is supposed to give him at least three warnings. He gave him no warnings.”

Asked again if Paul should have won, he replied: “I think so. With the knockdown, he sealed it. He got that point taken away.

“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.”

Fury said afterwards: “For the past two and a half years this has consumed my life but tonight I secured my own legacy.

“I dedicate this to my new baby Bambi at home and my missus, I miss you baby, I love you. I knew I would win this fight, I had the world and pressure on my shoulders but I came through. This is a world title for me.

“This was my first main event. I will come back bigger and better and stronger, if he wants the rematch he can bring it on. These are tears of joy.”
