Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have officially faced off as they sell their third effort at a scrap.
The pair – who have been on a collision course due to being green in the ring but extremely well known out of it – were separated by security before trading words.
Fury promised Paul that he would retire him, and Paul said the same but to jeers from the crowd. The American then insulted the Brit’s power, to which Fury said he was beating people better than Paul when he was 14-years-old.
Fury – inexplicably topless – was reminded that his family have said they will ‘disown’ him should he lose. They shared sly smiles as they faced off for a second time.

Paul flew into London especially for this, and the fight is now officially confirmed for Sunday February 26 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
It’s the third attempt for the pair to meet in the ring, the first two falling through due to issues on Fury’s part. With no injuries to report and no travel issues, it seems that this time will be a charm.
Following rumours that everything was signed, the pair took to social media to make it official. It will be a joint promotion between Paul’s MVP, Top Rank, and Queensberry. Details of the undercard aren’t yet released.
Although the weight and number of rounds are yet to be confirmed, rumours circulating online point to a ten-rounder at the cruiserweight limit of 200lb.
The fight will be shown on BT Sport Box Office in the UK, with the price as yet unreleased but expected to be at the £19.95 mark. ESPN+ has broadcast duties in the states and, as per a press release, customers can expect to pay $49.99.
