Tommy Fury has vowed to "end" Jake Paul in their much-anticipated fight which is finally set to take place today.

British boxer and former Love Island star Fury has been planning to fight US YouTuber Paul for more than a year, with various previous dates postponed.

Now, the fight is set for today in Saudi Arabia, taking place at 4pm GMT, and Fury has been sharing his confidence at a successful result.

Posting a photo on Saturday of himself squaring up to Paul, he wrote on Instagram: "Tomorrow… I’m ending you."

Fury's partner Molly-Mae Hague, who recently gave birth to their first child Bambi, backed up the fighting talk by commenting: "Light work."

However, Paul has also been active on social media with claims that he will win the fight.

Posting on Instagram, he wrote: "People say impossible, I say let’s find out."

He also added in a caption on a photo of himself and Fury: "Sunday. His act is up."

The pair were first due to fight in December 2021, but Fury pulled out over an infection and broken ribs. They then tried to reschedule for August 2022 in the US but were stopped by travel and visa issues.

In the run up to the fight, Paul had appeared to announce the arrival of Bambi before Fury and his Love Island partner Hague got the chance to.

But in an appearance on TalkTV's Piers Morgan Uncensored, as Morgan asked Fury about the baby news controversy, he said: "At the end of the day, all Jake Paul can do from wherever he is in this world is speculate, and that's all that was, speculation, nothing's ever true unless you hear it from me and Molly."

Fury recently told the BBC that Hague was doing all of the parenting of baby Bambi, born in January, but that he planned to make up for lost time once the fight was over.

He said: "Molly's taken it upon herself to deal with everything herself. She hasn't bothered me once about anything. She's been absolutely amazing."

The boxer, whose half-brother is Tyson Fury, added: "She is a young girl, and she has been doing it mostly by herself at this stage just because I've been in training camp. It's such a serious fight that you can't break training camp, and these are the sort of sacrifices I've made in the lead-up to this."

Tommy Fury and Jake Paul's fight airs as pay per view on BT Sport at 4pm this afternoon.
