Jake Paul and Tommy Fury still in talks to reschedule grudge match in UK as boxing rivals begin training for next fight

FRANK WARREN has revealed he is “working hard” to organise a grudge bout between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.

Fury, 23, has twice pulled out of a fight with Paul, 25, having suffered a rib injury last December followed by US visa issues in August.

But they have an agreement with each other to finally trade blows early in 2023.

While Fury’s dad, John, hinted the two bitter rivals may face off in Dubai, Warren has suggested that the fight could be in the UK.

And the Queensberry chief is “working hard” to get a fight over the line.

When asked what was going on with Fury, Warren told Queensberry’s YouTube channel: “Everyone’s trying to make this fight happen.

“I mean we had it, it was made a few months ago but he wasn’t allowed to travel, Tommy.

“So we’re trying to do it over here now, trying to get it on.

“We’re working hard to see if we can get it done.”

Warren was then quizzed if talks between the two camps were currently ongoing.

He said: “If you’re talking, it’s promising. And hopefully we can get it over the line.”

Fury Sr had declared last month on Paul: “He’s given me his word, his manager, we fight in February. And where better place? The world of Dubai.”

Paul beat UFC legend Anderson Silva in October to extend his career to 6-0.

Meanwhile Fury was in exhibition action against last-minute replacement Rolly Lambert in November.

Paul, who travelled to Dubai to be ringside, was called out by a topless Fury Sr after the fight.
