45-year-old ring legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) carried YouTuber Deji Olatunji for five rounds before turning up the heat and getting a stoppage from referee Kenny Bayless in round six. Easy work, as Floyd likes to say.
Unbeaten cruiserweight Tommy “TNT” Fury (8-0, 4 KOs), the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and late sub Rolly Lambert Fogum (15-1-1, 12 KOs) fought a lackluster six round exhibition with two minute rounds and oversized gloves. Then things really deteriorated.
Jake Paul, who was doing commentary at ringside, had dissed Fury the entire fight. Fury’s 58-year-old father John Fury ripped off his shirt and challenged Jake to fight him in the ring. Paul challenged Tommy to come fight him at ringside. Tommy challenged Paul to fight him inside the ring. It turned into a ‘you come over here,’ ‘no, you come over here,’ ‘no, you come over here’ scenario. Tommy finally tried to get at Paul, but was held back by security.
Fury was originally slated to face New Yorker Paul Bamba in an official fight, but he failed to make weight and no compensation deal could be reached with Bamba.
