Where were you when Andy Ruiz Jr shocked the world by beating Anthony Joshua in June 2019?
For Tommy Fury, he was in the Love Island villa building his profile and so didn’t get to see boxing’s biggest upset in years.
Cut off from the rest of the world, he had no idea of the seventh-round knockout of the American-born Mexican that saw him become the new heavyweight champion of the world and only found out when a new arrival in the reality show let it slip.
“Oh my God, I don’t believe it,” he shouted.
Fury, 20 at the time, was in shock, then couldn’t contain his laughter as the scale of Joshua’s first-ever loss sank.
Joshua was making his debut on American soil and many expected the then-world champion to overtake Jarrell Miller en route to a huge showdown with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
Miller, however, failed multiple drug tests and the little-known Ruiz Jr stepped in and took his place. Not since Mike Tyson lost to Buster Douglas in 1990 has there been such a surprising result.
Wilder, meanwhile, has since lost his WBC crown to Fury’s older brother Tyson.
Fury could find himself being the fighter on the receiving end of an upset if he loses to the polarizing Jake Paul in December.
He’s currently 7-0 with four knockouts to his name, but a loss to a YouTuber-turned-professional boxer like Paul would spell disaster for him.
He would have to legally change his name to Tommy Fumbles for an entire year and not only did his father John threaten to disown him and force him to retire, he also suggested that he and Tyson would beat Tommy.
Tyson trained him in preparation for his critical showdown. He even ate the same meals as Tommy as camp got underway.
However, Paul showed that his camp is also in full swing and certainly working.
The Problem Child managed to defeat former UFC fighters Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren over former NBA player Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber, AnEsonGib.
