Tommy Fury accepts Jake Paul rematch as promoter Frank Warren explains next move

Tommy Fury ‘definitely wants’ a rematch with Jake Paul and has promised a second meeting between the two rivals will not go the distance.

The former Love Island star sealed a split decision win over the American in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, recovering from a late knockdown to get the win on the judges’ scorecards.

It was Paul’s first defeat in seven professional fights with the YouTuber-turned-boxer revealing shortly the fight he had already spoken to Fury about a rematch backstage.

’I’m going to go back for this rematch,’ Paul said. ‘I just talked to Tommy back in the medical room, he’s like, ‘let’s go, let’s do it again’. He’s down for it.

‘That’ll be the focus first and foremost. I’m going to prove and fighter a better fight than I did tonight and get that W.’

Fury has now effectively accepted the rematch challenge on an appearance on Good Morning Britain.

‘The rematch is something I am definitely wanting because I believe, in the rematch, I will stop him,” he told Good Morning Britain. “The first fight I had never been eight rounds before so you are just a bit wary of what is in your tank and how the fight is going to go.

‘It is the most lucrative fight for both of them and people will buy back into it again.
