What have they said?
Tommy Fury: “Anthony, you ain’t going to be so pretty after the 29th mate – I’m going to smash all the front of your face clean in and that’s a promise.
“And after I’ve done you, you little Oompa Loompa, I’m coming for your best pal Jake Paul, because the both of you couldn’t beat him in the same night together.
“So, I look forward to seeing you on fight week because talk’s cheap and I want you to say it to my face, and see how brave you are then.
“I’ll see you soon boys, take it easy.”
Anthony Taylor: “I think it’s a disrespect to the sport, in my eyes and to many people’s eyes that understand boxing.
“He’s not a boxer. A boxer does not fight guys with ten wins and 126 losses. I can see if he fought a guy that was 1-2, 2-1, 3-3, 4-5, OK, 7-4.
“I can see if you fought those type of opponents with those records, then people can say, ‘OK, you’re actually not bad’.
“You don’t see a Ryan Garcia fighting guys on his debut with 0 wins and 26 losses. We don’t see Ryan Garcia fight a guy that’s, OK four wins eight losses.
“OK, let’s see, two wins, one loss, third fight, ten wins, five losses.”
