Boxing star Tyson Fury has confirmed that his younger brother Tommy Fury will enter the ring with Jake Paul.
After much waiting, it looks like Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will finally meet in the ring.
The pair were originally scheduled to fight in late 2021 before Fury suffered a rib injury and contracted a chest infection a few weeks before the fight.
Once again, the two were set up for a fight last August, but were never crowned with success, as Tommy and his team faced difficulties and were denied entry to the United States.
However, after several months of disagreement between the two camps, Tyson Fury confirmed that Tommy and Jake will finally touch in gloves.

In an interview with Seconds Out Boxing, Tyson stated that an announcement is just around the corner.
“Tommy and Jake Paul did it. This will also be announced soon,” he said.
“Yes, we’re almost done with it, we should announce it pretty soon. I’m not going to announce it because they have to do it themselves.”
When asked if the “Gypsy King” was going to help his younger brother prepare for battle, he struck back.
“Yes, I’m going to put on a blonde wig and talk about complete nonsense in the gym every day, just to get him moving,” he joked.
According to journalist Ariel Helwani, the Tommy Fury vs. Jake Paul fight has already been “concluded” with two long-time rivals, who are expected to enter the ring on February 25 in Saudi Arabia.
Although, it’s probably worth waiting for the official announcement before pinning hopes.
