Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight set for 18 December in Miami with deal agreed

Tommy Fury and Jake Paul are finally set to meet in the ring with their fight now set for 18 December in Miami.

The two have swapped insults online for most of 2021 with Fury, younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, eager to put the YouTuber in his place.

According to The Sun, a deal between all parties is now agreed with their showdown pencilled in just before Christmas.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren said earlier this week an official announcement could be made in the coming says.

Paul has racked up a 4-0 record in professional boxing, getting wins over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former basketball player Nate Robinson.

In 2021, he has switched his focus to former MMA fighters, knocking out Ben Askren in April before sealing a split decision win over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in August.

His bout against Fury will be his first against a recognised professional boxer.

The former Love Island star has won all seven of his professional bouts, fighting on the same card as Paul in the summer with his win over Anthony Taylor.

Tyson Fury warned earlier this month his little brother will have to retire from boxing and change his name if he loses to Paul.

‘I think the fight needs to happen – Tommy and Jake will get the fight done,” Tyson told Boxing Social.

‘If Tommy can’t splatter Jake Paul, I’ll retire him from boxing myself. If he can’t beat Jake Paul, forget about boxing.

‘Because he’s got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy.

‘But it’s a great fight for the social media world and for all the kids out there who support them both.

‘It’s a great fight to watch, it’s a spectacle.

‘But Tommy – his name’s Fury. If he can’t beat Jake Paul, I’ll have to change his name.’
