The YouTuber-turned-boxer and WBC Champion Tyson Fury's brother, Tommy, will fight in August

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury's fight has now been rearranged to 6th August and will take place in Madison Square Garden in New York.

The pair previously set a date for their long-rumoured fight after the Love Island star's brother, Tyson Fury, called for them to have a boxing match. They were set to go head-to-head on December 18th in Miami, Florida, but was called off after Fury said he had a chest infection and a broken rib.

The fight is now official and the YouTube star has vowed that he will take "this little Fury's head off".

Jake Paul uploaded a video to Twitter this week (22nd June) calling Tommy out and said that "boxers like him are the reason this sport started to die."

Tommy reportedly cancelled the new date after his Dad, John Fury, was not able to attend.

Paul said that Fury was "fumbling the bag" by appearing to cancel the August fight.

He also clapped back at Paul by saying that he "doesn't need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas."
