According to MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are apparently set to square off once more on Saturday, February 25.

Jake and Tommy originally agreed to meet in Florida in December 2021. The British athlete, however, withdrew at the last minute owing to illness or injury and was unable to compete.

Tyron Woodley entered the ring for a rematch with Jake as a result and was defeated. The pair agreed to fight once more in New York in August 2022. Tommy had to withdraw a second time in this case because he was refused entry to the USA.

Instead, he faced Anderson Silva in October and prevailed over the UFC icon through unanimous decision. Interestingly, however, discussions to arrange the bout with Tommy for a third time started late last year. According to Ariel Helwani, Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury is set to take place on February 25.

Although the location has not yet been disclosed, there have been rumours that the contest may very possibly wind up taking place in Saudi Arabia.

Paul most recently disclosed an agreement with PFL and a desire to compete in mixed martial arts, but he made it clear at the time that he was not quitting boxing or abandoning the sport altogether.

Paul has experience working with Showtime, and they had plans for a card on February 25 that includes a rematch between Stephen Fulton Jr. and Brandon Figueroa. Although this could theoretically be rescheduled to March, it doesn't appear that the fighting Furys' visa situation has improved since last summer.
