YouTube sensation Jake Paul was brimming with bluster hours before his bout with Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia.

Paul posted a video about what he thought would happen in the fight, and said there was no doubt about the outcome. “This is already written and destined,” Paul said. “I am knocking this guy out. I, Jake Paul, will knock out, defeat and embarrass Tommy Fury.”

Despite the bravado, Paul lost a split decision to Fury.

There was clearly quite a bit of bad blood between the two fighters, coming in large part because of two previous postponements of scheduled fights. Fury was injured in one of the postponements and had travel issues in the other.

The victor said that Paul earned his reputation by fighting old men and well-known celebrities.
