Boxing star Tyson Fury has confirmed that his younger brother Tommy Fury will be stepping into the ring with Jake Paul.
After much anticipation, it looks like Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are finally set to meet in the ring.
The pair were initially scheduled to fight in late 2021, before Fury sustained a broken rib injury and picked up a chest infection a few weeks before fight night.
Once more, the two were set to fight last August, but never came to fruition as Tommy and his team faced difficulties and were refused entry to the US.
However, after months of back and forth between the two camps, Tyson Fury has confirmed that Tommy and Jake will finally be touching gloves.
