Jake Paul has publicly agreed to finally fight Tommy Fury in the UK in a February bout.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer sent a message to Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, on Twitter, giving him seven days to respond and confirm the fight.
Paul’s tweet came in response to a video of Tommy’s father and trainer John Fury speaking at the post-fight press conference Sunday.
Jake Paul has publicly agreed to finally fight Tommy Fury in the UK in a February bout
Paul was in attendance at Fury’s exhibition fight against Rolly Lambert, commentating ringside and the two camps got heated during the bout.
After the fight, John told media about Paul and his manager Nakisa Bidarian: ‘I walked him down, backed him in a corner and checkmated him, he’s agreed to a February bout.
‘He shook my hand and gave me his word of honor – his manager. It’s happening in February.
‘I said, ‘Listen, if you renege or back out, you’ll never live it down in your life. You can’t break a man’s handshake.’
‘Contract’s mean nothing to me, but a handshake does. My word – you can build a tower block on it.
‘He’s given me his word, his manager, we fight in February.’
Tommy Fury (R) and Paul have twice been scheduled to fight, with the former withdrawing
Paul quote tweeted the video of John saying this and replied: ‘Dear @FrankWarren , I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in February.
‘I’ll come to his country, no more running.
‘His baby is due then and you’ve said it’s no issue.
‘Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving you seven days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on.’

A tweet also followed up from Jake’s promotional company Most Valuable Promotions, which he runs with Bidarian.
It read: ‘John Fury has asked for February. Jake Paul has agreed.
‘All that is needed now is for Frank Warren to get Tommy Fury to sign.
‘MVP is paying Jake Paul and Frank Warren is paying Tommy Fury.’
Fury and Paul have twice been scheduled to fight, with the former forced to withdraw on both occasions, first due to injury and second having been prohibited from travelling to the United States.

Paul had furiously clashed with both Tommy and his father, John, after the Love Island star produced a lackluster performance in his short-notice exhibition bout against Lambert.
And the pair, who have hurled insults at each other on numerous occasions, were at it again, with Paul screaming ‘you’re f***ing s**t’ and ‘you’ve got no d**k’ at Fury while the exhibition was taking place.
Fury responded throughout the fight, calling his long-term rival a ‘b***h’ during the third round of his six-round clash. But it was after the fight that the furious exchange between Paul and both Tommy and John Fury began.

The elder fury ripped his shirt on and threatened Paul to join him in the ring
It started with John, who climbed inside the ring, ripped off his shirt and implored Paul to join him in the squared circle, shouting: ‘Forget my son, I’m the king of the bare-knuckle man.’
Paul, meanwhile, responded with: ‘You’re a miserable old man. Come fight me right now then.’
Tommy Fury, who is now without a professional fight since his six-round points win over Daniel Bocianski in April, then joined the equation, stating: ‘There’s a certain b***h from ringside that I want in the ring now.
‘Tell him to get in here because he would never have the b***h to get in here and fight a man of this caliber on a few hours notice.’
