(CNN)YouTuber Jake Paul suffered the first defeat of his fledgling boxing career on Sunday night as pro boxer-turned reality TV star Tommy Fury edged him out in a split decision in Saudi Arabia.
Two judges both scored the fight 76-73 for Fury, with the third judge ruling 75-74 in favor of Paul at the end of their eight-round cruiserweight bout at the Diriyah Arena near the capital Riyadh.
"In my first main event, 23 years old, I had the world on my shoulders, and I came through," Fury said after the fight. "This, to me, is a world title fight. I trained so hard for this. This was my destiny."
