A boxing match between YouTube star Jake Paul and Love Island favorite Tommy Fury has finally been booked, according to a report by The Mirror.

The eight-round matchup, which has been several weeks in the making, will reportedly take place at a TBA venue in Miami, although Orlando and Tampa are also on the table, per Fight Hub TV’s Marcos Villegas.

“Spoke to someone close to the @jakepaul vs Tommy Fury situation. Tells me the fight is very close to happening. Dec 18 is the date on Showtime PPV. Miami is front runner but Orlando & Tampa also in the running. @Serranosisters expected to be on undercard”.

The Dec. 18 bout will air live on BT Sport Box Office in the UK, The Mirror states.

Paul, 24, is 4-0 since making his debut last year. The controversial social media influencer holds stoppage wins over YouTuber AnEsonGib, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, and former ONE FC and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren. Paul’s latest fight saw him earn a split decision victory over former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley at a Showtime Sports event on Aug. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Tommy Fury, younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is 7-0 in the boxing ring with four knockout victories. His last performance saw him earn a unanimous decision victory against Anthony Taylor on the undercard of Paul vs. Woodley.
