Jake Paul shares plans to celebrate Tommy Fury KO after signing £207k deal
Jake Paul already has plans lined up for how will celebrate if he beats Tommy Fury.
For the third time, the pair have put pen to paper on a titanic fight, this time taking place in Saudi Arabia on February 26. There have been numerous jibes thrown back and forth between the two arch-rivals and even Fury’s girlfriend Molly Mae Hague has been mentioned by the American in an attempt to rile up the Mancunian.
Both men have promised knockout victories when they finally clash in the ring and, should Paul emerge victorious, he has already chosen his celebratory drink. The 25-year-old has secured a £207k deal with AU Vodka and made it official after accepting a challenge from DJ Charlie Sloth to get the bottle of the Welsh vodka brand tattooed on his arm.

In a video posted on the vodka company's social media profiles, Sloth tells Paul: "I'm gonna give you $250,000 cash if you get a tattoo of Au Blue Raspberry on your arm." He then presents a suitcase of cash, saying he was a "man of his word" as he drinks the bottle while sitting down for his tattoo. Paul also tries the vodka, and says boldly: "I'll drink this s**t after I knock out Tommy."
There is more on the line than just bragging rights for Paul, as he will earn a ranking in the cruiserweight division if he beats Fury later this month. The WBC is one of four major sanctioning bodies in the sport and ranks 40 of the cruiserweight division's best boxers in the world.
"Jake has dedication and respect to the sport and the WBC will not tolerate discrimination against anyone, he deserves the opportunities that any other boxer has," said the sanctioning body in a statement. "He demonstrated punching power and improved skills as well as a solid chin. Tommy Fury represents a clear challenge to Paul in a battle of two undefeated professional boxers."
They added: "Jake Paul has been close to the WBC for several years, starting with the first event promoted in the UK when his brother, Logan, fought KSI. On that night Jake won the WBC amateur belt in the undercard fights.
"Jake has dedication and respect to the sport and the WBC will not tolerate discrimination against anyone. He deserves the opportunities that any other boxer has. Tommy Fury represents a clear challenge to Paul in a battle of two undefeated professional boxers."
Ahead of what will be arguably the biggest fight of his career so far, Paul has stated his ambitions to become world champion in the future. "I want to become a world champion. I'm going to become a world champion, and these fights are all just stepping stones to get there. I'm slowly improving," he said.
"I've sparred against world champions and done phenomenal against them, so who knows what can happen in two to three years from now when I go into my athletic prime? I'm starting to really, really get this sport and all aspects of it. It's really actually scary what could possibly happen. I think not only will I become a world champion, I think I will be a dominant world champion and knock someone out for the belt."
