Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will officially fight on December 18 in Tampa, Florida.
The bout will be an eight-round bout at a weight of 192 pounds, as the YouTuber and the former Love Island star go head-to-head.
The duo will meet at their first media event on November 6 in Vegas with a second in Tampa on November 8.
Paul, aka “The Problem Child,” is 4-0 as a pro, recorded his last victory over MMA fighter Tyron Woodley in August.
And Fury – who is the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson – claims he’s “not one of those MMA men or those basketball players” and intends to give the YouTuber a “serious lesson in life”.
Fury said, “Jake Paul is about to learn a serious lesson in life. This is my world and it has no place here.
“I’m not one of those MMA men or those basketball players, I’ve been boxing my whole life.
“I’m going to show the world the difference between a YouTuber and a real fighter.”
Paul also had his say in the fight, telling Tommy it was time to say goodbye to the Fury family’s boxing legacy.
Announcing the fight, Paul said on Instagram: “It’s finally official. Timothy had no choice but to sign the contract so he could finally pay his bar bills, afford a jersey for the club and stop living off Molly!
“On December 18th in Tampa Bay, I change the name of this w ***** to Tommy Fumbles and I party with Tom Brady.
“Pucker up Timmy… it’s time to kiss your last name and your family’s boxing legacy goodbye.”
And Tyson, who recently beat Deontay Wilder to remain heavyweight champion in Las Vegas, said something similar, saying he was changing Tommy’s last name and taking him out of the sport if he didn’t beat Paul.
“I think the fight has to take place – Tommy and Jake will finish the fight,” Tyson told Boxing Social.
“If Tommy can’t splash Jake Paul, I’ll take him out of boxing myself.” If he can’t beat Jake Paul, forget about boxing.
“Because he has the ambition to be world champion, let alone beat a guy from YouTube.
“But it’s a big fight for the world of social media and for all the kids who support them both.
“It’s a great fight to watch, it’s a show.
“But Tommy – his name is Fury. If he can’t beat Jake Paul, I’ll have to change his name.
