On Sunday, YouTube-star-turned-professional-boxer Jake Paul lost for the first time after Tommy Fury claimed a split decision in their pay-per-view headliner in Saudi Arabia.
Paul’s young boxing career has been quite the ride as up until Fury he’d only defeated a fellow YouTuber, a former NBA All-Star and a trio of past-their-prime former MMA champions in Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva. Fury represented Paul’s first “real” boxing test, and he lost.
Now that Paul’s first loss is out of the way, what are the biggest takeaways from the fight and moving forward? Does this sully a potential showdown with Nate Diaz?
That’s what we asked this week’s “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Danny Segura, Matthew Wells and Brian “Goze” Garcia, who weighed in on the topic with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
