Now seven days stand between the fans and the fight that has since 2021 collapsed for one reason or another. Twenty-six-year-old American YouTuber turned professional boxer Jake Paul and twenty-three-year-old English boxer and one-time reality show star Tommy Fury will meet in Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh on February 26. Then, finally, the bitter online rivals will get a chance to settle old scores for good.

Their first fight, scheduled on December 18, 2021, caved in as Tommy Fury reportedly developed a chest infection and rib injury. A second fight planned for August last year fell apart as Fury couldn’t enter the U.S. because of visa-related problems. A showdown in Dubai during the Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Deji Olatunji exhibition raised a few hopes. Come the new year, finally, both camps seemingly worked out a match plan.
