JAKE PAUL confirmed his fight with Tommy Fury is ON for the week before Christmas, as SunSport exclusively revealed.
The rivals will square off in Tampa, Florida on December 18 after months of verbal sparring.
SunSport exclusively revealed the fight was booked in for that date last week and it's now official.
Paul, 24, couldn't resist a shot at ex-Love Island star Fury, 22, when announcing the fight on Friday night.
He wrote on Instagram: "It's finally official. Timothy had no choice but to sign the contract so he could finally pay his bar tabs, afford a shirt for the club, and stop living off Molly.
"December 18 in Tampa Bay I'm changing this w***er's name to Tommy Fumbles and celebrating with Tom Brady.
"Pucker up Timmy… it's time to kiss your last name and your family's boxing legacy goodbye."
Paul turned pro in January 2020 beating online rival 'AnEsonGib' in one round and 11 months later knocked out ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37.

He then beat retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, in the first round in April before his biggest win, against Woodley.
Fury is 7-0 and debuted in 2018 to much fanfare due to the popularity of his unbeaten older brother, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson.
But a year later he shot to mainstream fame after finishing runner-up in hit reality TV show Love Island with his now-girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.
The light-heavyweight has so far faced mainly journeyman opposition, a regularity for most boxers in their early days of the trade.
But he signed a two-fight contract with US network Showtime this year and made his Stateside debut against MMA fighter Taylor.
The second part of the deal will now see him fight Paul following months of trash talk and viral goading.
