JAKE PAUL is going to give Tommy Fury "another chance" with a rescheduled fight in August.

The pair were set to put reputations on the line in December until Fury pulled out after suffering a broken rib and chest infection.


Paul was left fuming and looked ready to walk away from the rivalry without settling it in the ring.

But according to YouTuber Keemstar, who first reported Fury's withdrawal last year, the fight will go ahead.

He said: "What I'm hearing from my sources that Jake Paul is going to be in fact facing Tommy Fury.

"It looks like Jake is going to give him another chance."

He most recently knocked out Fury's replacement Tyron Woodley, 40, in December, having previously beaten the ex-UFC champion on points.

It added to KOs over gamer 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

But Paul is still yet to face a recognised boxer, something Fury has been critical of.

He said: “This man can’t fight.

"He got very low pay-per-view numbers last time. If he wants the big numbers, he knows where to come, let’s get it on.

"But until then, don’t talk if you don’t want to fight.”
