You didn’t expect it, but it will. On February 26, in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), American YouTuber boxer Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) will finally meet with the still unbeaten British light heavyweight prospect Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs), the champion’s younger brother WBC in heavyweight. This has been officially announced.
Initially, the fight was planned for February 25, but this date, while Fury and Paul got into trouble, was already staked out by the ex-world boxing leader Floyd Mayweather, who will be released in London (England) in an exhibition fight against the British ex-mixer
Aaron Chalmers (5-2 in MMA).
The Saudi-funded shows are co-hosted by Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions (MVP), Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions, and assisted by local Skill Challenge Entertainment Enterprises.
“Finally, the moment of truth has come,” proclaimed the hype-savvy Jake. “On February 26, I will enter the ring with a “real boxer” from a legendary fighting family, and show the world the truth about who boxer Jake Paul really is.”

Tommy promises that Jake’s boxing career will “end on February 26th”.
“I can finally continue my career. Every time I go out in public now, everyone asks me about the fight with Paul. After the fight is over, everyone will ask me what it was like to knock Jake out. The world is about to see what happens when a real boxer faces a YouTuber,” Fury said.
This fight was already scheduled twice already, with date, place and everything, but at the end of 2021, Tommy pulled out of the fight due to an injury, and in August 2022, he could not go to fight in the USA due to connections with criminals. At the start of 2023, Jake accused Tommy of continuing to run away from him, and in response, Fury issued a new challenge to Paul, voicing daring conditions.
