Tyson Fury loses £100,000 bet despite Tommy beating Jake Paul in split decision
Tyson Fury lost his £100,000 bet despite the fact his half brother Tommy beat Jake Paul.
The WBC World Heavyweight Champion stuck the six figure sum on the Love Island runner-up before he came to blows with Paul. Tommy only just managed to overcome the former Disney actor, winning by a split decision in Saudi Arabia.
Tommy was emotional after the fight, dedicating his victory to his other half Molly-Mae and their newborn baby daughter Bambi. However, there was one significant loser amongst the Fury family.

Tyson still lost £100,000 in spite of the fact Tommy emerged victorious. That is because the Gypsy King’s bet was for a knockout victory rather than a split decision.
Predictions over who would win between the pair seemed to shift with every passing day. Tommy was the overwhelming favourite due to the fact he is a professional boxer who has trained and competed all of his life.

However, Paul was the narrow favourite going into the contest, despite never facing a professional boxer and only fighting former mixed-martial artists. Tyson was always confident Tommy would knock the former YouTuber out. "Tommy knocks out 90 percent of people that he spars with or drops them at least, so he's a very hard puncher and Jake Paul will find that out tomorrow," Tyson told IFL TV.
"I've got 100 racks on it for an inside the distance stoppage, so if he loses, then I'll lose 100 bags as well. I've got him at 3-1. I know Tommy is going to knock him out.
“What is a little bit stupid is I see all these experts and professional boxers picking Jake Paul over Tommy. I'm like, 'What the hell are these guys watching?'. Because Tommy will absolutely deck him.
“I think Tommy can get him out of there whenever really. It'll definitely be inside the distance and it won't be a points job for sure. Tommy wins by knockout. I can smell the fear and he [Jake] is rattling. He is rattling like a little b**** and he is going to get knocked out."
