JAKE PAUL says his grudge fight against Tommy Fury is the “biggest risk of his career”.
After months of back-and-forth between the two, FINALLY terms have been agreed that they will fight in the boxing ring on August 6th.
Paul has admitted he’s tired of people berating him for not “fighting a real boxer” in his five professional fights to date.
While he’s won all five, four by KO, they’ve been against another YouTuber, a basketball star, and two retired UFC fighters.
But in less than two months he will face off against the younger brother of WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury.
Paul released his own hilarious promo video for the fight titled “The Biggest Risk Of My Career”.
In it he dresses as Tommy and tricks his stunning partner Julia Rose into posing as Molly-Mae Hague, the Love Islander’s girlfriend.
But in the clip, the social media star decided to be serious too – surprisingly praising his upcoming opponent.
He said: “All jokes aside, this is my toughest test yet. You wanted me to fight a real boxer.
“You guys have been tormenting me day after day, ‘fight a real boxer, fight a real boxer’.

“The answer is ‘no friggin’ problem.’ This is as real as it gets.
“Tommy Fury comes from a bloodline of legendary fighters, the Gypsies.
“His brother is a world heavyweight champion, has never lost a fight.
“Tommy Fury has been boxing since he was 12, coming through the amateurs and mauling a 10-1 boxer.
“The Fury name is as notorious as the Mayweathers. The whole family knows how to box.
“To put this in perspective, it would be like Tommy Fury starting a vlog channel to out-vlog me [brother] Logan – that’s not bloody possible.”
Paul then admitted he “went into her territory” and admitted that boxing is “part of his blood.”
The YouTuber admitted that Tommy “is taller, boxes four times as long and has longer arms and a lot more ring experience.”
He then announced that he was putting his $300,000 “MVB belt” on the line — which stands for “Most Valuable Boxer.”
Paul adds that he is risking his belt, his career and his legacy if he fights Tommy.
The Brit will be without his father and brother Tyson for the biggest fight of his life.
Father and trainer John – who was banned from the US for a violent crime conviction in 2011 – has claimed his WBC heavyweight champion boy is also suspended.
John was barred from attending any of Fury’s State shows after gouging out a man’s eye in a fight at a car auction.
But he now claims the 33-year-old WBC heavyweight champion has also been barred from visiting the boxing hotbed.
