YouTuber Jake Paul is undefeated no more.
Who would’ve thought his unbeaten streak would come to an end at the very second he faced an actual fighter? Go figure!
Paul couldn’t get past former pro-boxer turned-TV personality Tommy Fury, who beat him in a split decision in another PPV ‘fight.’
Two judges gave Fury the nod with a 76-73 decision, with just one referee deeming the fight 75-74 in Paul’s favor.
The cruiserweight bout had some interesting flashes, with Paul even knocking down Fury early in the seven-round fight.
Notably, though, the 26-year-old social media personality managed to hold his own on the ring, which is why NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. came to his defense and gave him his flowers despite the loss.
Give @jakepaul his credit! Much luv Brodie

The YouTuber is now 6-1 in his ‘professional’ career, and he would’ve even gotten the chance to be ranked and pursue a title fight with a victory over Fury, who didn’t need to bring his A-game to put an end to his so-called unbeaten streak.
Fury — a half-brother of boxing superstar Tyson Fury — has now won his ninth straight fight since he got off the ring to star in ‘Love Island.’
Shortly before the fight, Paul assured the media that he was going to be a world champion and that he’s taken boxing way more seriously than anything else in his life.
But at his age, with his size, and with a track record of unimpressive rivals, that’s just not going to happen, not even if his 20+ million YouTube subscribers start an online petition or something.NEXT: Jake Paul Makes His Goals Very Clear About His Boxing Career
