Jake Paul announced that his rematch with Tommy Fury will now take place on February 26 in Saudi Arabia. After a heated confrontation, security broke apart the celebrity boxing rivals’ first face-to-face encounter.
Tyson Fury sat ringside at Wembley Arena and watched as Anthony Yarde was defeated by Artur Beterbiev. Paul and Tommy Fury entered the ring to make their announcement and have the face off.
While being questioned by JOE, the YouTuber-turned-boxer started to dish the dirt on John Fury’s, Tommy and Tyson’s father. He said that John “doesn’t know s**t about boxing.”
Paul’s face then takes on a startled expression as Tyson Fury enters the room just as he is finishing his remark. Fury approaches the 26-year-old and pretends to hit him. He does it in a playful manner as Fury them congratulates him for agreeing to participate in the bout on February 26 as they hug.
“You could literally see the fear,” one person commented.
Another person wrote: “Jake’s life flashed before his eyes.”
“Absolutely s**t his pants,” said a third.
Even Paul admitted he was scared when Tyson came into the room. He said, “I really thought he was going to f***ing punch me when he came in.”
However, it seems that Tyson shares everyone else’s enthusiasm for the match between his brother and Jake Paul.
He expressed his opinions on the match, saying:
“The two guys are putting it on. They’re both undefeated and whoever loses is pretty much f***ed, I think. There’s not a lot to say. It’s like me, when you speak a lot of s*** you have to back it up and that’s it.”
“I’ve been doing these for years, 30-odd times in a row and now it’s time for the big boys to do it. I’m excited, I’m really excited.”
Tommy was forced to withdraw from the match in December 2021 because of a rib ailment. He then again had to withdraw in August 2022 because of a problem with his US visa. This event will mark the first time Jake Paul is going up against a professional boxer.
