Jake Paul will finally fight Tommy Fury in a boxing match later this year, following a long war of words between the pair.

Paul made his name as a YouTuber, but the American has now set out to establish himself as a professional boxer.

The 24-year-old is 4-0 so far, with knockout wins over fellow YouTube star Ali Eson Gib, former NBA player Nate Robinson, and ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren. In his most recent bout, Paul narrowly defeated former UFC champion Tyron Woodley on points.

Meanwhile, Fury – half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury – is best known to some as a former Love Island contestant, but the Briton is now 7-0 as a professional boxer.
