Interview with Anthony Taylor above
Anthony Taylor (0-1) discusses his cruiserweight boxing fight against Tommy Fury (6-0) on the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley undercard on Aug. 29. Anthony also spoke about friend AJ McKee winning the Bellator featherweight title, Jake Paul inviting him to his training camp for Tyron Woodley, and how the Youtube star helped secure his fight against Fury.
“Jake was like ‘hey I got some news for you .. have you heard of Tommy Fury?’ I’m like ‘oh yeah, the guy that’s been trying to fight you.” He was like ‘how would you like to fight him on my undercard, I would love for you to fight him. I was like “wow” blown away, (what an) opportunity, let’s do it.”
