The stage is set for the much-awaited boxing clash between YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul and British professional pugilist Tommy Fury, with fight week in full swing. The pre-fight press conference went down on Thursday in Saudi Arabia, setting the tone for what is expected to be a heated encounter.

The fighters have had to scrap two previous planned bouts due to various reasons, including injuries and travel issues. Nonetheless, the two combatants have kept the trash talk and animosity alive, with Paul boasting an unblemished 6-0 record and Fury coming in with an impressive 8-0 record, the anticipation for this fight is at an all-time high.

At a pre-fight news conference that lasted almost 90 minutes in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on Thursday, the spotlight was on Paul (6-0) and Fury (8-0). Not only were the YouTuber-turned-boxer and British professional the main attraction, but also in attendance were Mike Tyson and members of the Saudi royal family. Come Sunday, the two rivals are set to meet in a catchweight bout of eight rounds, weighing in at 185 pounds.

It was hardly surprising then that the press conference ended with a tense faceoff between the two fighters, accompanied by a heated exchange of words. With their personal animosity well-documented, it seems the feud is set to spill over into the ring, making for a must-see spectacle on fight night.

“I think we make a deal then since you’re so confident,” Paul said. “I think we make a deal. If you win, I’ll pay you double what I’m paying you already. But if I win, I take everything that I’m paying you. Deal or no deal since you’re so confident. Deal or not deal? I want to shake on it.”

“You’re dealt – you’ve got a deal,” John Fury shouted. “All or nothing. You’ve got it. Just to confirm, can we have this in writing, please, as well? Because you know what? Thank you Jake, you’re making our night and stay even better.”

“You heard that ladies and gentlemen, it’s a deal,” Paul continued. “My lawyers actually already have the contract ready. You know what’s funny, Tommy, is that your dad agreed to the deal before you. Your dad is more confident than you.”

“If Jake Paul beats Tommy Fury, Tommy Fury don’t deserve paying,” John Fury added.
