Speaking to reporters during the post-fight press conference, Fury said he was close to trading punches with Paul in the heat of the moment.
“I would say pretty close, I’ve not watched it back but I was ready to throw hands then and there. This man’s all show for the cameras. Me and my team will go now … he can count his blessings in the hallway really.”
Fury went on to claim that all of Paul’s security team intervened to protect the YouTuber.
“Forty of his security broke it up because the man can’t fight. He can’t fight. Imagine him in a street fight? Please, he won’t last two seconds.”
During his post-fight interview, Paul initially didn’t commit to his next opponent.
“I got eight rounds under my belt, who’s doing that in their fourth pro fight? I’ve been boxing for 18 months, I haven’t been to the dentist, my teeth are crooked, my nose is crooked, I need to take some time. I’m only 24-years-old, I need to find out who I am, I’m changing a lot.”
