Jake Paul Details How Defeat To Tommy Fury Is A "Gift From The Universe"
Jake Paul suffered his first professional defeat in a boxing match against Tommy Fury last month in Saudi Arabia. Fury won the match by split decision, earning himself a spot in the WBC rankings.
Despite initially praising Fury for being the better man, Paul has now backtracked by claiming that the Brit "didn't win" the fight.
Paul has stated that the loss has made him realise that his unbeaten boxing record has little importance to his other life goals, such as being happy, loving himself, and having eternal confidence.
He believes that the loss is a gift from the universe in terms of life and personal growth as a human being.
Paul has played down a fight against KSI next and wants to avenge his loss to Fury before facing his YouTuber rival.
He is expected to activate his rematch clause for a second fight against Fury, with July being a targeted date for the second fight.
Paul has given several excuses for his recent loss, including not being on his A-game, weak legs, improper weight cut, and a lot of pressure.
He admits that he lost the fight and wasn't at his best, but he still insists that Fury "didn't win".
Paul believes that a lot of things played into his loss, including getting a point deducted in the beginning of the fight, but he doesn't want to make excuses.
