Jake Paul, the YouTube star-turned-boxer, has suffered his first defeat in a fight against Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia.

It was widely anticipated that Paul would eventually face a reality check in the boxing ring, having previously called out experienced fighters such as Canelo Alvarez.

Despite criticism of Fury's record, he proved to be a tough opponent for Paul, matching his size and youth.

Paul's limitations as a boxer were exposed, with his jab lacking in variety and failing to build to anything.

Fury's use of uppercuts proved to be a significant challenge for Paul, who struggled with his form and often resorted to swinging wildly.

Despite a rematch with Fury being written into the contract, it may not be worth it for Paul to pursue this option.

A better choice for Paul may be to target Nate Diaz, an older, slower and smaller MMA fighter, whom Paul has a chance of beating.

This fight would generate significant interest despite Paul losing his undefeated record.

Ultimately, Paul's first defeat highlights the limitations of a novice boxer attempting to compete at the highest level of the sport.
