Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury reportedly sealed for February 25
'The Problem Child' may finally face rival 'TNT' Fury
A long-awaited showdown between bitter rivals Jake Paul (6-0, 4KO) and Tommy Fury (8-0, 4KO) is set to take place on February 25 in Saudi Arabia, sources say.
YouTuber Paul and Love Island contestant Fury have been scheduled to face each other twice before, in December 2021 and August 2022, but both times they failed to fight.
From Cleveland, Ohio, 26-year-old Jake Paul is currently seen as the underdog for not having a traditional boxing background. He has won all six bouts as a pro, but hasn't faced a single professional boxer yet.
With his background as an amateur champion, now unbeaten in eight pro bouts, Fury is presently picked as the favorite to win at -200, with Paul placed at +150.

23-year-old Fury, younger half-brother to WBC World heavyweight champion Tyson, only experienced 12 amateur bouts but still managed to win two north regionals championships and reached the national finals, acheiving quite a lot within a small timeframe. His difficulty to find opponents led to him turning pro early at the age of 19 in 2018.
Fury won his pro debut on points, then KO'd his next four foes – two in round one, two in round two – but won his last three fights on points, which included two opponents with winning records.
Paul has scored four knockouts in six contests, but hasn't faced any professional boxers yet, opting to fight YouTubers and retired MMA fighters instead.
Fury was scheduled to face Paul initially on December 18, 2021, but the Brit withdrew from the bout due to a bacterial chest infection and a broken rib suffered in sparring. He was also the reason for their summer showdown in August 2022 not materialising after he was refused entry to the U.S. due to his ties with MTK Global and Daniel Kinahan.
Both Paul and Fury have ambitions to become world champions in their respective careers.
