Boxing legend claims Jake Paul will beat Tommy Fury in rematch

While Tommy Fury beat Jake Paul comprehensively in their first fight, according to Shane Mosley, ‘The Problem Child’ has all the necessary tools to avenge the loss.

On February 26, in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, the YouTube star fell foul to the superior boxing skill of the brother of WBC Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury.

While BJ Flores instructed his fighter to work the body and deploy his overhand right, he simply couldn’t solve the puzzle of Fury’s lightning jab and slick footwork. However, now working with one of the greatest to ever do it, Paul hopes he’s accumulated the necessary ingredients to overcome his biggest rival.

In 2018, after a triumphant debut performance against Deji, the Cleveland native turned professional and headed to Big Bear, California.

Training under the watchful eye of Mosley, in the same high-altitude environment utilised by the likes of Gennady Golovkin and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, the social media icon produced a dazzling performance, dominating Aneson Gib with ease.

But despite the captivating showing, he decided to continue his career with Flores instead of Mosley. However, realising he needs that little bit extra experience in camp, he’s back with his old coach, and the six-time world champion believes his protegee is capable of big things.

Shane Mosley picks Jake Paul to beat Tommy Fury

In an exclusive interview with Sporting Post, the 51-year-old said: “Tommy was throwing a lot of unusual punches, and Jake wasn’t ready for that amateur type of style Tommy had. Yes, Tommy dictated the range, but it was more so Jake did not know how to get to him, like cutting off the ring.”

He continued: “There are different types of movement he could have done to draw him and to counter that he has not used yet, so we’ll teach him different things. So when he fights this type of fight again, that mistake won’t happen again, where he gets stuck and does not know what to do.

“I want him to know everything so he knows what to do. He will avenge that defeat to Fury. He’s only lacking in experience right now, that’s all. He would win if he rematched him next. He’s in good hands. With me and the whole team. I believe he’s going to improve very fast.”
