YouTube star Paul has won the first six professional fights of his boxing career against the likes of Anderson Silva and Tyron Woodley but he will face his biggest test yet against natural boxer Fury. The British star has also won his first eight fights against limited opposition, but comes from a family with a big name in boxing which includes his WBC heavyweight champion brother Tyson.

There will be huge pressure on both men to deliver a win for different reasons, with Paul set to receive an official ranking if he picks up the win while Fury will want to avoid an embarrassing loss derailing his career.

Paul: "Me and Tommy will be around three rounds max," Paul said. "He's just not going to be prepared for the moment or what I'm bringing to the table. I'm trying to knock him out with a hook actually, I want him to be the first person I knock out with my left hand so we've been working on that... I think the first round will be chill and then I'll start to figure him out after 30-45 seconds.

"Then the second round I'll turn it up and it shouldn't take much more than that. Tommy should get a good wealth manager, I can recommend you a few, take the money and ride off into the sunset but this is going to set your life in the direction that you should have been on before and you're going to hate this fing sport after February 26."

Fury: "Things have got in the way the previous two times," Fury said. "Things well out of my control. A broke rib and everything else that was wrong with the first fight. The second fight, denied entry into the U.S. Third fight, here we are. Three times is a charm and we're seeing that.

"We're two weeks out. I'm ripped, I'm ready, I'm fit, I'm strong and I've got more in the tank than what it takes to beat Jake Paul. Don't worry about that. I'm not interested in press conferences. I'm interested in completing my camp, which has been the best camp of my career and I'm ready to KO this man and get him out of the sport."
