JAKE PAUL and Tommy Fury have agreed terms for a grudge match on December 18 in Miami.
The two have been relentlessly going back-and-fourth online in recent months but talks were equally progressing behind the scenes.
And despite recent road bumps, SunSport understands a deal is over the line for a Christmas cracker.
They both fought as recently as August 28 on the same card, with Paul beating ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, over eight rounds.
Earlier in the night, Fury beat the YouTube star’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on points in a four-rounder.
The rival fighters then clashed backstage with their opposing teams before security had to pull them apart.
Negotiations soon followed but Fury publicly admitted he turned two offers down, believing he had been lowballed.
Paul’s effort to bump up the deal to $1million, plus additional pay-per-view upsides, were also knocked back.
But Fury’s promoter Frank Warren recently confirmed talks were progressing in the right direction, as he grew confident a deal would be met.
