Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are set to fight this month after two failed attempts to arrange a boxing match between them.
YouTuber Paul and Fury, half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, were supposed to face off for the first time in 2021, but Fury pulled out due to injury and illness.
Then, last August, travel problems prevented the 23-year-old Brit from traveling to the US to take on 26-year-old American Paul.
Now, however, they are finally facing each other, as Saudi Arabia hosts the long-awaited contest.
Here’s everything you need to know about the fight:
Jack Paul faces Tommy Fury on Sunday, February 26th.
The main card is scheduled to begin at 4pm BST (8am PT, 10am ET, 11am ET), with the main event and episodes of Jake Paul and Tommy Fury initially lined up for 7pm BST (11am ET). Pacific, 1 p.m. ET, 2 p.m. ET).
The unusual date, Sunday, can be linked to a busy weekend of fights and unwillingness to clash with Floyd Mayweather vs. Aaron Chalmers and KSI’s upcoming Misfits Boxing event, both of which take place on Saturday, February 25th.
The fight has been confirmed at Diriyah Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It’s the same place where Anthony Joshua fought Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019, which is on the outskirts of town.
TV info has already been agreed upon and announced, with fight fans in the UK able to watch the fight by purchasing a PPV with BT Sport Box Office. Pricing for UK fans has not been confirmed.
American fans can purchase PPV on ESPN + PPV for $49.99.
The first fight was scheduled for December 2021, but Fury pulled out, citing an injury and a broken rib, prompting Paul to fight Tyrone Woodley.
The two men tried to reschedule in the US in August last year, but travel and visa issues dashed hopes of a meeting between them.
Paul is the most active fighter and has confirmed his transition to mixed martial arts with his debut in late 2023.
Paul is 6-0 as a professional with four knockout victories. In his first professional fight, in 2020, the American stopped fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, before knocking out former NBA star Nate Robinson. Paul then knocked out former MMA champion and former UFC fighter Ben Askren in 2021, and went on to defeat teammate Tyron Woodley, the former UFC champion. In a rematch with Woodley later that year, Paul won by a knockout. Last time, in October, the 26-year-old beat UFC legend Anderson Silva after the Brazilian was knocked out.
Meanwhile, Fury is 8-0 with four wins by KO, and none of his opponents yet have a high profile. The Briton last fought in April, defeating Daniel Pocianski on points over Tyson Fury’s defense of the heavyweight title against Dillian White at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Victory – 8/11; by KO / TKO – 12/5; By resolution – 2/1.
Triumph – 10/13; by KO / TKO – 13/5; With a resolution – 4/1.
for every Zion SportsPaul’s fight purse will be $3.2 million, but he’ll also take home 65 percent of the pay-per-view money, bringing his prize pool to $8.6 million — including sponsorships.
Meanwhile, Fury is expected to receive a $2 million purse and a 35% stake in PPV, which means he is expected to receive $4.5 million.
While Paul and Fury are relatively new to boxing, the undercard will feature a big fight between two veterans and champions.
Ilunga Makabu, WBC cruiserweight champion and former opponent of Tony Bellew, will fight former world heavyweight champion Badou Jack.

Twitter’s heavy tweeters aren’t as active as they used to be, and people who use the site regularly have markedly different interests than in years past. Heavy tweeters are a small but valuable segment of Twitter users, accounting for less than 10% of monthly active users while generating 90% of all tweets and global revenue. Where the heavy tweeters are going and why they’re leaving is unclear, though we can make some assumptions based on recent data. Heavy Tweeters Leaving, User Interests ChangingAs heavy tweeters let their accounts sit idle, those who remain active gravitate toward topics for which Twitter isn’t traditionally known. Previously, e-sports and streaming personalities were growing areas of interest among heavy Twitter users.5 months ago Search Engine Journal
