In the wake of his first career defeat, Jake Paul and his brother, Logan, have disagreed with one another in terms of whether or not the judges made the correct decision.
‘The Problem Child’ suffered his first loss in seven fights since he turned professional in 2020, with Tommy Fury deemed to have done enough to win 76-73 on two of the judges scorecards and claim the split decision victory.
Since the bout, Paul has insisted that he was fighting through adversity, stating that he was ill during camp and that he had injured his arm during training.
In an interview on Logan Paul’s podcast, ‘Impaulsive’, Jake explained why a rematch is justified and argued that he felt the grudge match could have been decided as a draw.
“I think it was a draw, honestly.”
“I’m not saying I should have won, or whatever, I’m saying it probably could have been a draw. So Tommy should want to come back and actually beat me properly.”
Meanwhile, Logan Paul agreed with the majority of viewers and told his brother that the judges made the correct call.
“I think you would have been lucky to get a draw, I think he beat you.”
It seems as though the wheels are already in motion for a rematch between the two rivals, with talks underway for a fight in July. Despite already having the win to his name, Tommy Fury also called for the rematch in a post-fight interview, making his intentions of fighting Paul clear.
As Paul suggests, Fury is likely to be aiming for a more significant win in their second fight and to ultimately put an end to the American’s career in professional boxing.
