Jake Paul and Tommy Fury’s long-awaited grudge match has finally been booked.
The pair will face each other on August 6 at Madison Square Garden, New York City after a long and arduous negotiation process. Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Jake Paul wrote: “Okay people he grew a set overnight. It’s official, I’m taking this little Fury’s head off. Amanda Serrano and I dual main-event at the Mecca of boxing. Official press conference and ticket on sale this Wednesday, June 29th at 11 AM. #PaulFury.”
Both men were set to face each other in December of last year but the fight was cancelled after Fury sustained a rib injury and a bacterial infection in camp. After the pull-out, former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley stepped in to save the card, only to be knocked out in brutal fashion midway through the sixth round. The knockout marked Paul’s fifth win as a professional as he moved to a perfect record of 5-0.
