TOMMY FURY expects to beat Jake Paul within four rounds, warning the social media personality that even his “mouth can’t save him”.
The duo will finally go face-to-face in an eight-round match on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
Fury has previously retired twice, with a rib injury in December 2021 and then on a US visa last August.
But they will eventually meet in Riyadh later this month.
And it will be Fury’s first fight since beating Daniel Bocianski at Wembley last April to continue his perfect record in the sport, which stands at 8-0.
Meanwhile, Paul, a YouTuber-turned-boxer, is also undefeated, having won each of his six pro fights.
In his last duel, he defeated Anderson Silva on points in October in the USA.
But Fury is confident the American will suffer the first defeat of his career in the Middle East.
And expect the fight to last no more than four rounds, which is one more than Paul recently predicted.
In conversation with Piers Morgan TalkTVhe said, “I know I’m going to knock him out.

“This fight will not go longer than four rounds.
“The stuff I do in the gym, the people I deal with in the gym. This is definitely not possible over the distance.”
With plenty of trash talk between the two over the past few years, Piers asked Fury what he thought of the War of the Wards.
He said: “It’s part of the package, you know, it is what it is. They are things we must do.
“It’s called the entertainment business – that’s the game we’re in and me and Jake Paul are great dance partners and I’ve enjoyed the build up so far.
“It’s getting a lot more heated and I can’t wait but the real work begins when we get on the ropes and social media can’t save Jake Paul.
“His mouth can’t save him – it’s all about fighting and I’m a lot better at it than he is.”
Older brother Tyson has urged him to talk more and believes he should try to get under his skin at every possible opportunity.
Tyson told BT Sport: “It’s a good fight and they make good dance partners.
“I think Tommy actually needs to talk a little more.
“Spice it up a little, go in his face a little more and ruffle his feathers.
“Grab his blond hair and maybe drive him crazy, I don’t know.”
