Jake Paul and Tommy Fury vow to end each other’s careers as the pair broke apart in a fiery first bout in the ring
JAKE PAUL and Tommy Fury were torn apart as they first faced each other ahead of their fight.
The pair of celebrity boxing rivals have announced the latest postponement of their grudge fight on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
And Paul traveled to London to face Fury ahead of Anthony Yarde’s light heavyweight title fight against Artur Beterbiev.
The two stood face to face, exchanging fiery words, and had to be forced apart before tempers boiled over.
Fury, 23, said: “Come on February 26, it’s been too long, he’ll never box again.
“I’m not 50, I’m not 40, I’m not an MMA guy, I’ve been doing this my whole life and I swear to god you’re done on February 26th.”
Paul, 26, hit back: “He’s fought taxi drivers, he has no chin, it’s all a joke. I’m ending you on February 26th and you already know it.
“You will crack under pressure, you are not built for this moment. You’re a cheater, it’s all boasting, it’s all false confidence.”
Fury has pulled out of the Paul fight twice, with a rib injury in December 2021 and then last August on a US visa.
The travel fever continues to this day and subsequently led the duo to the Saudi desert.

Paul has KO’d ex-MMA champions Ben Askren (38), Tyron Woodley (40) and Anderson Silva (47) 6-0 in his career.
But 8-0 Fury will be the first opponent he faces with a recognized professional boxing record.
He said to Paul: “I beat better people than you when I was 14 in the amateurs. i will train you I’m not an MMA guy.
“I hit people better than you did when I was 14 when you were fooling around on Disney Channel, so don’t come here pretending you are when you aren’t.”
Fury has been warned by the heavyweight champion’s brother to drop her famous surname and stay in the Middle East if he loses.
And Paul quipped: “He’s getting blown away by a Disney star, plain and simple, that’s it.
“You will see, you will see who the real professional boxer is. All those critics, all those people saying, ‘Fight a real boxer.’ Here we go.
“Tommy has so much to lose, his family will cast him out if I f***ing knock him out, plain and simple, that’s it.
“Sorry Tyson, I love you, but it’s over for your brother.”
