Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury is a go.
It was officially announced Friday via a press release that Paul (4-0, 3 KOs) will face Fury (7-0, 4 KOs) on Showtime pay-per-view in an eight-round boxing bout set for 192 pounds at Amelie Arena in Tampa, Fla., on Dec. 18.
Paul also promoted the event, titled #PaulFury: One Will Fall, on social media.
Pucker up Timmy, it’s time to kiss ur last name and ur family’s boxing legacy goodbye. DEC 18th Im changing this wankers name to Tommy Fumbles and celebrating with Tom Brady. Tickets on sale November 10th!
#PaulFury One Will Fall.
Paul and Fury are also scheduled to appear at two events next month to promote the fight: Nov. 6 in Las Vegas and Nov. 8 in Tampa. Tickets for the fight go on sale Nov. 10.
Friday’s announcement comes as little surprise given the ongoing feud between Paul, a popular YouTuber, and Fury, a star of the U.K. reality show Love Island. Fury competed on the undercard of Paul’s recent bout with Tyron Woodley this past August.
Both men remained undefeated, with Paul winning a decision over Woodley, and Fury outpointing Anthony Taylor, and the two have been embroiled in public negotiations and trash talk ever since.
