Jake Paul taunts Tommy Fury of his family disowning him if he loses to him


Tommy Fury and Jake Paul will finally square off after two failed attempts.


On February 26 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, their fight will be shown on pay-per-view by BT Sport Box Office in the UK and ESPN+ in the United States.


On January 28, Paul and Fury used the opportunity provided by the fight between Artur Beterbiev and Anthony Yarde at the Wembley Arena in London to promote their own match in the middle of the ring, just before the main event.


“This sh!ts been going on way too long. He will never box again. I’m not 50, I ain’t 40. I ain’t an MMA guy. I’ve been doing this my whole life, and I swear to God, you’re finished come the 26th of February,” said Fury.


“I was beating better people than you when I was 14 in amateurs. I will school you. I ain’t an MMA guy. I was beating people better than you when I was 14 while you were messing about on the Disney Channel. Don’t come here pretending you’re about it when you’re not.


“I guarantee you. I swear to God. If it’s the last thing I do in boxing – you’re over in four weeks. Enjoy the last few weeks of your so-called boxing career.”


Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) and Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) were originally scheduled to square off on December 18, 2021 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida. However, the British fighter was forced to withdraw from the fight due to an injury, and Paul went on to defeat Tyron Woodley in a rematch and earn the year's top knockout.


Paul and Fury reached an agreement to reschedule the fight for August 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York, but Fury once again had to cancel, this time owing to travel complications. Prior to being forced to cancel the bout owing to Rahman's weight problems, Paul shifted his focus to Hasim Rahman Jr., a different respectable opponent with a prior history in boxing.


Paul just defeated future MMA Hall of Famer Anderson Silva, age 47, by unanimous decision in October.


Paul objected to the quality of opponents Fury had to contend with during their argument.


Fury's past eight opponents had combined records of 24 wins, 176 losses, and 3 ties at the time of their fights.


“He’s fought taxi drivers. He has no chin. It’s all a joke,” said Paul. “I’m ending you February 26th, and you already know it. You’re going to crack under pressure. You’re not built for this moment. You’re an imposter. It’s all a bravado, it’s all fake confidence. You can’t even knock out a taxi driver.


“He’s going to get knocked out by a Disney star – plain and simple. That’s it. End of story. You’ll see, bro. You’ll see who the real professional boxer is. And all these critics, all of these people say, ‘Fight a real boxer.’ Well, here we go … Tommy has so much to lose. His family is going to disown him when I knock him the f--- out. Plain and simple, that’s it. Sorry Tyson, I love you, but it’s over for your brother.”
