JAKE PAUL and Tommy Fury have wasted no time in kicking off the war of words before their rescheduled grudge fight.
The celebrity rivals have announced they will finally settle their score in the ring on Sunday, February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
Paul, 26, comes into the bout with a 6-0 record but faces his first opponent with recognised professional boxing experience.
And Fury, 23, has vowed to be the first and last by promising to bury the American's prizefighting career in the desert.
He said: “Jake Paul’s boxing career ends on February 26th and I can finally move on with mine.
"Every time I go out right now, everybody asks me about the Jake Paul fight.

Fury gets a third crack at the cherry, having pulled out in December 2021 due to a rib injury and then last August amid a US visa issue.
And Paul claimed there is "no excuses now" as he appeared to suggest Fury's girlfriend Molly-Mae has given birth.
He posted online: "After multiple failed attempts to get Tommy Fury in the ring, the moment of truth has finally arrived.
"Fumbles has no excuses now. Baby is born. Money is massive. Immigration is not an issue."
Fury's champion brother Tyson, 34, insisted the 2019 Love Islander can "stay in Saudi Arabia" if he fails "chin" Paul.
And last year he even threatened to change his younger sibling's name if he does not emerge victorious.
Tyson said: "If Tommy can't splatter Jake Paul, I'll retire him from boxing myself. If he can't beat Jake Paul, forget about boxing.
"Because he's got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy.
"But it's a great fight for the social media world and for all the kids out there who support them both.
"It's a great fight to watch, it's a spectacle. But Tommy – his name's Fury. If he can't beat Jake Paul, I'll have to change his name."
Paul is set to go face to face with Fury for the first time on Saturday before Anthony Yarde, 31, fights Artur Beterbiev, 38.
