What did they say?
Tommy Fury: “Anthony, you’re not going to be that pretty after the 29th mate – I’m going to smash your face and that’s a promise.
“And after I made you, little Oompa Loompa, I’m coming to get your best mate Jake Paul, because you both couldn’t beat him on the same night together.
“So, I can’t wait to see you in Fight Week because talking is cheap and I want you to tell me to my face, and see how brave you are then.
“I’ll see you boys soon, take it easy.”
Anthony Taylor: “I think it’s a lack of respect for the sport, in my eyes and in the eyes of a lot of people who understand boxing.
“He’s not a boxer. A boxer doesn’t fight guys with ten wins and 126 losses. I can see if he fought a guy who was 1-2, 2-1, 3-3, 4-5 , OK, 7-4.
“I can see if you’ve fought those kinds of opponents with those records, then people can say, ‘OK, you’re actually not bad.’
“You don’t see a Ryan Garcia fighting guys in his debut with 0 wins and 26 losses. We don’t see Ryan Garcia fighting a guy who is, OK four wins eight losses.
“OK, let’s see, two wins, one loss, a third fight, ten wins, five losses.”
