YouTuber Jake has recently launched a professional boxing career, and currently has an unbeaten record of four victories. His last victory came after a split decision over Tyron Woodley earlier on in the year. Tommy is also undefeated, so this fight will be a surefire decider.

In the past the pair have clashed at a press conference, with Jake saying: "When I'm confident in my skill, I'm already thinking about the next opponent.

"Why do you think this guy is sitting behind me right now?"

Tommy chimed in and said, "Your time is coming pal. Don't mention my name out of that garbage mouth of yours."

To which Jake replied, "When you know what's going to happen, it's easy. This is an easy sport."
