Tommy defeated Jake Paul via split decision in Saudi Arabia – but it wasn’t without its drama and controversy.

Tommy was the rightful winner in the end – with the judges calling the fight 76-73, 76-73, 74-75 in his favour – but with a point deduction and a knockdown against his name, it was far from plain sailing.

This fight between the British former Love Island contestant and an American who found fame through YouTube was the result of over two years of social media warfare that saw a clash culminate only at the third time of asking.

Tommy had to pull out of the two previously arranged contests and was bombarded with claims that he was scared to fight the seemingly less decorated boxer in Paul.

The star always maintained he had to pull out of his dates with Paul for legitimate injury and visa-related reasons. 

It’s no wonder after finally being able to prove himself right that the Mancunian was moved to tears as he was announced the victory.

At the end of the contest, Tommy had his hand raised and Jake didn’t seem like he would contest that too much. 

The pair shared another nice moment in there as Tommy shed tears after winning. 

Molly-Mae  stayed at home with the duo’s one-month old baby, who Fury dedicated his win to on Sunday.

He also donned his daughter’s name on his trunks for the fight.
