Tommy Fury finally set to fight Jake Paul this year as Saudi Arabia throw millions to host bout instead of UK | The Sun

TOMMY FURY is finally set to fight Jake Paul this year with Saudi Arabia throwing millions to host the bout.

The younger brother of heavyweight champ Tyson Fury was meant to face the loudmouth YouTuber-turned-boxer back in December 2021 but pulled out through injury.


Fury's rivalry with Paul didn't die there, though, with the pair going back and forth on social media since.

Both have fought since their fight was cancelled, with Fury recording a win over Daniel Bocianski in April last year.

Paul, meanwhile, has taken out UFC legends Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.

And SunSport understands that Fury will meet Paul in Saudi this year, with the Middle Eastern country throwing millions to host the bout.

Both fighters will hope to keep their unbeaten professional records in tact.

Prince Khaled teased on his Instagram in the early hours of Monday morning that a fight was "signed, sealed, delivered", but didn't specify which two boxers would be going head-to-head.

Fury has previously claimed that he would fight Paul in Manchester or London for FREE.

He said: “Once again I’m seeing Jake Paul s**t all over the internet. You offered Paddy Pimblett a million pound to spar.

"You offered Tyson a million-pound bet about some b****cks or other. But you don’t want to pay me much more to have a fight.

"Well I’ll go one better than that cause it’s gone past money for me now – I’m not bothered.

"I’ll fight you for free in Manchester or London, next month. Not a problem. So let’s see how game you are.

"Promoters get nothing whose trying to take everything, me and you get nothing, all proceeds will go to charity.

"I just want to fight you and put an end to you, because all this money and everything – it’s gone on too long. Take it or leave it.”

SunSport has previously reported that February 25 could be the date the two rivals enter the squared circle to dance.
