It has been a verbal sparring match in the lead-up to this fight. 

Both Fury and Paul have said the bout won't last longer than four rounds.

In a recent interview with Pierce Morgan, Fury said: "I know I'm gonna knock him out. This fight will not go any more than four rounds.

"I've enjoyed the build up, it's going to get a lot more heated and I can't wait.

"But the real work starts when we get inside those ropes.

"Social media can't save Jake Paul, his mouth can't save him, it comes down to fighting and I'm a lot better than it than him."

While Paul took to social media to release a video which he captioned "Dear Tommy".

In the video he said: "Tommy, I hope you've enjoyed these last few moments of your career, this is it, you're going to be retired from boxing after this, you're going to be disowned by your family.

"You have four rounds, then you are f*****. Tommy Fury, this is it for you."

Stakes are extra high for the fight after an agreement was made at the recent press conference that the fight would be an "all or nothing" affair. 

Paul said: "If you win, I'll pay you double what I'm paying you already.

"But if I win, I'm taking everything that I'm paying you. Since your so confident."
