BAD BLOOD Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury date: UK start time, undercard, live stream and how to watch as Youtuber takes on Tyson Fury’s brother

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are finally set to battle it out at Madison Square Garden in early August.

The two have been embroiled in a fierce war of words for over a year and were set to clash last December.

Fury pulled out of facing the Youtuber due to injury but they have now agreed to a new date which is fast approaching.

‘TNT’ Fury, younger brother of world champion Tyson, took his professional record to 8 and 0 by beating Daniel Bocianski at Wembley in April.

The 23-year-old is looking to forge a successful career in the sport and is taking a huge risk in facing social media star Paul.

The American is yet to face a pro boxer but has won all five of his exhibition bouts to date and KO’d MMA star Tyron Woodley last year.

There is plenty of bad blood between Paul and Fury and it promises to be fascinating to see them in action.

“Tommy Fury has been boxing since he was 12, come through the amateurs, mauled a 10-1 boxer.
