When is Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul fight? UK start time and ring walks

Tommy Fury will be hoping to continue with the unbeaten start to his boxing career with what appears to be his toughest test so far against Jake Paul.

Fury and Paul will face each other both hoping to maintain their impressive career records, with Fury having established an 8-0-0 professional record. Paul, meanwhile has forged a 6-0-0 record, but with no professional wins against full-time boxers, despite this, a WBC cruiserweight ranking is up for grabs should he win the fight.

The fight has been a long time in the making, with two failed attempts previously to enter the ring. The first occasion saw injury and illness take Fury out of contention before his withdrawal last summer due to Visa issues.
