Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will finally settle the score when they go head-to-head in Saudi Arabia next weekend.
The pair have been scheduled to fight twice before, only for Fury to pull out on both occasions; first due to injury and then after being stopped from travelling to the United States.
The long-term rivals came face-to-face at Wembley Arena shortly before Anthony Yarde was stopped by Artur Beterbiev in January, but Fury opted to skip their announcement pres conference earlier in February.
Paul (6-0) is looking to maintain his unbeaten record inside the ring and comes into the bout on the back of a decision win over MMA legend Anderson Silva. Fury will be the first professional boxer he has faced, however.
With their grudge match finally set to go ahead next Sunday, Sportsmail breaks down everything you need to know ahead of the fight.

What’s been said so far?
Paul, speaking to Sportsmail ahead of the fight, revealed he plans to defeat Fury before fighting YouTuber KSI later this year. A two-fight deal with MMA star Nate Diaz will then be on the agenda.
And of Fury’s press conference no-show, he added: ‘I think it’s just that he didn’t want to travel all the way to Saudi and miss a day or two of training. I think he’s worried, it’s not a good sign.
‘And, by way, it’s the cumulative training that you’ve done over your whole career that’s going to win this fight – one or two days will not change the course of this fight for him.
‘To me, it’s that insecurity of whatever he’s going through in camp. I think he knows he’s got a really tough fight coming up.’
Both Paul and Fury have fired a barrage of insults at each other during the build-up to the fight
Fury, who also spoke to Sportsmail prior to the fight, branded the American a ‘circus act’.
‘Jake Paul, he is what he is – he’s a circus act,’ he said when asked what it has been like to work with the American behind the scenes.
‘His whole persona, the way he deals with things, the way he tries to negotiate is all a circus act, to be honest.
‘I’m glad we got everything over the line. I’ve got a great team behind me – I believe more of a professional team – and I believe that’s why we got it over the line.’
