Tommy Fur is finally set to take on rival Jake Paul this December in a huge £1m-
PLUS grudge match. The Love Island star and YouTuber have been embroiled in a
bitter war of words over the last year. Talks over a fight have been ongoing for a
number of months after the pair clashed backstage in August
And Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has confirmed a deal for them to collide in
December is almost done.
He hopes the contracts will be sealed by the end of this week in a huge PPV battle on
Warren told IFL TV: “At the moment we’re working through the terms, we’re quite
close and I’m hoping we can get it over the line.
“It’s a great fight for Tommy. It’s a very lucrative fight for him. Financially how can
you turn that down.
“I think he wins it. It’s captured everyone’s imagination, it’s all they were talking
about out in the States.
“Hopefully we’ll finish it off this week and we can move forward.
“It’ll be in late November, December.”
Fury had originally rejected a $1m-plus offer to take on his rival in the US later this
year. But the 22-year-old – with an unbeaten 7-0 record – is understood to be open to
the idea of ending their feud in the ring.
Last month he claimed a bout with the 4-0 American – a former Disney star – was “not
worth talking about”.
