Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury LIVE commentary: UK start time, undercard, talkSPORT coverage, live stream and how to follow


Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will finally face off this weekend and their grudge match will be live on talkSPORT.

The bitter rivals are ready to settle their feud in Saudi Arabia following a string of postponements.

Paul and Fury are ready to face off this weekend

After the first agreement, Fury was forced to withdraw with an injury before he was then denied entry to the United States ahead of the proposed second fight and had to pull out again. 

The pair have had bad blood since 2021 but are yet to settle their differences under the lights.

However, they are now ready to meet and are set for an explosive clash this weekend.

‘Problem Child’ Paul beat UFC legend Anderson Silva last time out and he will be looking to extend his unbeaten boxing record. 

And should he win, the WBC will officially recognise him as a cruiserweight.

Meanwhile, Fury will put his own undefeated record on the line as he enters the ring following his win against Daniel Bocianski last April on his brother’s undercard.

Paul vs Fury: Date and location

The eight-round fight, which will take place at a catchweight of 185lbs, is set for Sunday, February 26. 

It will be held at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.

The undercard is set to start at 7pm UK time on the night with the Paul vs Fury main event ring walks scheduled in for 9:45pm.

Saudi Arabia is three hours ahead of the UK.

Paul vs Fury: What has been said?

Paul savaged a no-show Fury at their first pre-fight press conference, calling him a ‘flake’ and ‘scared’ and claiming he’s never been tested.

Fury missed the press conference on February 8 due to a ‘private matter’.

But Paul said: “I’m used to his behaviour at this point. He’s unprofessional, he’s a flake, he’s not a serious businessman, he’s not a serious fighter.

“I’m going to prove that, that’s why this fight is called ‘The Truth’, because the truth is going to come out.

“He’s going to have to pay for all the times he pulled out, all the business people he screwed over.

“It’s disrespectful, they’re some of the biggest names in boxing and biggest promoters in the world, some of the most influential people in the world, one of the greatest countries in the world and he doesn’t want to show up because of a private matter. Cool.

“We all have private matters, when you sign up to do something and you make a commitment that’s what it should be about and it just shows me that he’s scared.

“He said he didn’t need to train for this fight, ‘oh I could fight Jake Paul and I don’t even need to train’ when his excuse first was that he had to train extra for this fight and now apparently it’s a private matter so it’s typical Fury stuff.

“I love Tyson but I’m saying the dad [John] and Tommy, it’s typical from them.”

Fury has responded to Paul’s insults and has since hit back to reveal the true reasons why he chose not to make the trip to Saudi Arabia.

In an exclusive interview with talkSPORT, ‘TNT’ has also insisted that he will RETIRE if he loses to his American rival Paul.

Speaking on talkSPORT Drive, Fury was asked by host Andy Goldstein about whether he would retire if he loses to the ex-Disney actor.

To which he said: “Yes, 100 per cent yeah. Definitely.

“If I can’t beat Jake Paul I don’t belong in the ring.”

When pressed on how he’d react to being caught flush by Paul, Fury replied: “If he caught me, I’d probably just laugh to be honest.

“Because I’ve been used to being hit by heavyweights and Olympic gold medallists, world champions and whatever, so Jake Paul – a little kid from Disney – what’s he going to do?

“I’ll let him hit me, I’m not interested, I’ll put my hands up and let him tee off at me like a five-year-old is hitting me.

“This man has talked himself into a good fight, when you hear the saying, ‘Oh he talks a good game’, this man does talk a good game.

“Whereas me, I can fight a good game. I’m not as good as a talker as he is, I give him that, but I’m levels and levels and levels above him in fighting, and he’s going to find out the hard way.”
