Frank Warren has provided an update regarding a potential meeting between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury, and insists the fight is not yet done.
Reports broke earlier this week that the pair had agreed terms to lock horns on February 25th and close the chapter on a saga that has ran on for the best part of a year.
However, Warren told IFL TV that, whilst the teams were close to rubber stamping terms, the fight had not yet been finalised.
“I’m hoping we’ll have an announcement soon, but until it’s done – it’s not done.”
“It’s been going on for a long time now and there’s lot’s of anticipation, everybody wants to see the fight.”
“Jake Paul is a tremendous promoter and has done incredibly well for himself, so it will obviously draw lots of eyeballs if it does get finalised.”
Paul and Fury had been set to fight each other twice in 2022, however the Brit pulled out on both occasions, once due to injury and then as a result of being refused entry into the USA.
The popular American YouTuber scored the best win of his professional boxing career to date in October, when he outpointed UFC legend Anderson Silva at the Desert Diamond Arena.
Fury was last seen by fans in an exhibition contest in Dubai, where he shared the ring with Rolly Lambert on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs Deji.
Rumours the fight could land in the Middle East have surfaced this week, however Warren’s comments may indicate it may be a touch early to be speculating on potential venues.
