Tommy Fury did not get convinced by Jake Paul about his boxing abilities after defeating Anderson Silva.

This past Saturday, internet sensation turned boxer Paul took on mixed martial arts icon Silva in a boxing match at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona. He faced his toughest test yet in the former UFC middleweight champion and managed to edge him out by a unanimous decision in a competitive fight.

Before Paul got matched with Silva, he was lined up to take on professional boxer Tommy Fury, brother of former boxing heavyweight king Tyson Fury. However, the bout got scrapped after Tommy could not enter the country.

Tommy Fury Is Not Impressed With Jake Paul’s Win Over Anderson Silva

In a recent appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Tommy Fury bashed Paul’s performance in his win over Silva.

“Please look at what a 48-year-old man has done with him. I’m not being funny but at the end of that fight, he looked like he’d been in there fighting the WBC light heavyweight champion. He looked gone. He went through the trenches in that fight, got roughed up and that’s a 48-year-old man. Anderson Silva is great but let’s be real and talk about how it is. The man’s nearly 50 years age of age, and he’s not trained as a professional boxer. He’s a professional icon, one of the best to ever do it in the UFC, in the cage, under a different set of rules.

“When Jake Paul steps in with a man who just trains boxing, especially after seeing it Saturday, I don’t see him beating any average boxer. Even not that good of a boxer would beat Jake Paul.”

Fury still wants to fight Paul after his next bout

After two unsuccessful matchups together, Fury is still targeting a clash with ‘The Problem Child’ after getting through his next fight.

“It’s a big one to get this fight over the line. If it doesn’t get resolved for a long time, I’m not interested in where I fight. I’ll fight that man wherever. I’m not bothered. If we could get there, this would’ve been all done and settled. I’m ready to go honestly.”

“I am ready. I’ve said this all along, you don’t have to call me out you don’t have to do anything to try and build the fight. I’m here.”

Tommy Fury is scheduled to face Paul Bamba for the co-main event of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Deji card, scheduled for Nov. 13 at Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
