Tommy Fury calls out Jake Paul after beating Daniel Bocianski by unanimous decision at Wembley | boxing news

Tommy Fury has issued a new challenge to Jake Paul after extending his unbeaten record with a points win over Daniel Bocianski at Wembley Stadium.

The 22-year-old put in a clinical performance, knocking his opponent down in the fifth round with a big right hand, which proved to be a potent weapon throughout the fight.

Following his eighth professional win, he again called out YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, telling BT Sport: “Jake Paul – this should have been done a long time ago in December and if you want it I’m here and I’m ready for you.

“Get the contract signed, asshole, let’s do it once and for all.”

“That boy in there [Bocianski] is a true professional. He was cut to pieces, still in there giving me everything he had, slapping Jake Paul and it would be over.

“Jake Paul, I’m going to end your career, you’re no good. Let’s finish this fight and settle this.”

The pair were due to meet in December, but Fury had to pull out due to a “medical issue”.

Fury, the brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, landed some nice shots and sent Bocianski staggering with an early right hand, before really stepping up his work in the third.

It looked like Fury might drop his opponent here and there as he connected with another big right hand, but Bocianski pretty much hung on until the bell.

Bocianski hit the canvas twice in the fifth, but the first prompted a warning from the referee as he was somewhat tackled to the ground. There was no doubting the second as Fury took him down with another vicious right hand.

A bloodied Bocianski, with a large cut above his left eye, somehow survived the round as Fury was guilty of being a little impatient as he looked to finish him off early.

Fury, who has never fought beyond the fourth round in his short career, tired in the sixth but was assured of victory and the judges scored the fight 60-54 in his favor.

Elsewhere on the undercard, Ekow Essuman successfully defended his British, Commonwealth and European IBF welterweight titles by defeating Darren Tetley by unanimous decision.

Essuman was the deserved winner, with the judges scoring the contest 117-111 116-112 and 116-112 in his favor.

Nick Ball beat Isaac Lowe in their featherweight clash, with the referee stopping the fight in the sixth round as Lowe took a barrage of shots in the corner.
