Any controversial refereeing calls during Jake Paul’s eagerly-anticipated fight with Tommy Fury will be analysed by VAR. The two rivals will finally go head-to-head on Sunday night after months of jibing, with the eyes of the sporting and influencer worlds watching on in Saudi Arabia.
There has been a lot of speculation over the potential outcome of the fight, particularly after rumours that Paul’s last bout against Anderson Silva was ‘fixed’. Some argued that the UFC veteran had taken a dive in the final round resulting in a victory for YouTube star Paul.
However, it has now been revealed that a video assistant referee will be present to ensure there is no repeat against Fury. TalkSPORT’s Michael Benson confirmed: “WBC have VAR to review any contentious refereeing decisions on video if needed.”
It has also been confirmed that there will be open scoring in Saudi Arabia, with both corners told of the judges’ scorecards halfway through the fight.
