Fury and Paul have been scheduled to face each other on two occasions to no avail. Ahead of their first date in December 2021, Fury pulled out of the contest with a broken rib before their August encounter was cancelled when TNT was denied entry to the United States – where the fight was due to take place.

Since then, both parties have teased the idea of a third attempt and it appears genuine efforts have now been made to make it happen. Tommy’s father John recently confirmed that he had come to a verbal agreement with Jake’s manager Nakisa Bidarian for the long-awaited grudge match to be held in February next year. The event is expected to take place in the United Kingdom with Fury still unable to cross the pond.

Speaking after his son’s last fight against Lambert, John said: “He shook me hand and he gave me his word of honour, his manager. It’s happening in February. I said ‘listen if you back out you’ll never live it down in your life’. You can’t break a man’s handshake. 

“Contracts mean nothing to me, but a handshake means my word. He’s given me his word, his manager, we fight in February.”
