The highly-anticipated boxing match between the controversial YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul and Tommy Fury has been booked for Dec. 18 in Tampa, FL, after reports surfaced early Friday.

This will be a matchup of two undefeated boxers to wrap up the sport’s incredible year in 2021. Both Paul and Fury are looking for another win after earning wins on the same fight card earlier this year.

Paul is coming off of arguably the most impressive win of his young boxing career over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, earning the split-decision win in front of the hometown crowd in Cleveland, OH. Fury earned a victory early on in the night against former Bellator fighter Anthony Taylor.
