Tommy Fury’s former opponent Anthony Taylor has been branded the Brit a ‘fraud’ for facing a lack of ‘legitimate competition’. Taylor – a former professional MMA fighter and Jake Paul’s main sparring partner – fought Fury in August 2021 on the Paul vs Tyron Woodley undercard.

Fury cruised to a unanimous decision victory over four rounds on the night and was then booked in to face Paul for December. However, Fury was forced to pull out of the contest due to a broken rib sustained in camp.

They tried to rebook the fight for August 2022 but again the fight was pulled after Fury was denied entry to the United States – where the bout was set to take place. Since the Taylor victory, Fury has fought once – a points win over 11-2 Polish prospect Daniel Bocianski.

For much of his career though ‘TNT’ has fought losing journeymen as is the case with many up-and-coming novice pros. Taylor has not been impressed by his former foe’s level of opposition and has given his brutally honest verdict on Fury ahead of his next fight on November 13 against Paul Bamba.

Speaking to Vegas Insider, he said: “I am the only legitimate competition Tommy Fury has faced, he’s a bit of a fraud if I’m truthful. Big John Fury must despair at Tommy’s progress and opponents.

“Yet there’s still a chance that Paul Bamba ends Tommy’s career on November 12. That’s what I’m predicting, the retirement of Tommy Fury after a devastating KO. Big John and Tyson Fury will then have to make an intervention. They’ll need to sit down and tell him he’s not a real fighter.”

Fury squares off against Bamba on the Floyd Mayweather vs Deji Olatunji undercard at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. The Puerto Rican light-heavyweight is a relatively unknown quantity having spent much of his career fighting in smaller-scale contests across North and South America.

Bamba has not fought the best opposition since making his professional debut in early 2021 with his previous seven opponents holding a combined 25-49-3 record between them at the time of fighting him. His two losses also come against fighters with poor records – 3-5 Derrick Van and 1-7 Abraham Velazquez Salazar.
