Jake Paul, the YouTube star-turned-prizefighter, and Fury have agreed to fight Feb. 25 in Saudi Arabia. This is the third time the two have booked a fight with one another, though they have still not gotten into the ring together.
Fury withdrew from a scheduled bout with Paul in December 2021 because of an illness. The bout was rebooked for August 2022, but Paul’s team pulled the plug because of Fury’s travel issues coming into the U.S. Fury is the younger brother of heavyweight great Tyson Fury and a popular reality show star in the United Kingdom.
Jake Paul, 26, is 6-0 in pro boxing and coming off a unanimous-decision win over MMA legend Anderson Silva in October. He has knocked out former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, former MMA champ Ben Askren and ex-NBA veteran Nate Robinson.
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are both enrolled in the @Vada_Testing program for their Feb. 25 fight, per sources.
The fight, which has yet to be officially announced, is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia.
