Jake Paul's fight with Tommy Fury will take place on February 25

Boxer and blogger Jake Paul's fight with Tommy Fury, brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, will take place on February 25. The match will be held in Saudi Arabia.

The fight was planned to be held several years in a row. However, for the first time, Tommy withdrew from the match due to health problems that affected his training camp.

The fight was then scheduled to take place in August in New York, but again fell through due to Fury's US visa issues. Paul wanted to replace Tommy with Hashim Rahman Jr. at short notice, but the son of the ex-world heavyweight champion couldn't fit into the regulated 200-pound limit.

Paul had his last fight with Brazilian Anderson Silva on October 29. The American won the eight-round fight by unanimous decision of the judges.

23-year-old Tommy Fury had his last professional fight in April of last year, defeating Daniel Bocianski. In November, Fury took part in an exhibition fight with Rollie Lambert on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's fight with blogger Deji.
