Tommy Fury savaged over 'pathetic' display

Elsewhere on Sunday's undercard, Tommy Fury was savaged over a lacklustre performance against Anthony Taylor.

The brother of boxing champion Tyson Fury, Tommy kept his undefeated boxing record in tact with a unanimous points decision victory over the MMA fighter.

The two competed in a cruiserweight contest over four rounds on Sunday in a bout that left much to be desired.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani said Fury - more known for his appearance on Love Island than his boxing - has dropped down the pecking order after failing to score a stoppage over Taylor.

gFellow analyst Dan Rafael tweeted: "Anyone who suffered through that pathetic Tommy Fury-Anthony Taylor fight deserves some of their PPV money back.

"There's bad and then there's that dreck."

UFC great Daniel Cormier tweeted: "Honest opinion of Tommy Fury. Wasn’t very good!

"Looks the part, but can tell he is still very raw. This performance makes his chances to fight Paul better.

"He isn’t very scary, maybe he will be but not as of now."

Fury is now 7-0 in his professional boxing career with four knockouts.

The 22-year-old is trying to follow in his brother's footsteps after his foray into reality TV.
