Both Paul and Fury were initially set to fight in December of 2021, but the fight was called off at the last minute after Fury suffered a rib injury and chest infection less than two weeks before the fight date.
The undefeated Paul went on to fight UFC fighter Tyron Woodley for a second time scoring a highlight reel KO.
Fury, also undefeated at 8-0, defeated Daniel Bocianski via decision at the Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte undercard.
Update: Paul released a 22-minute hype video to promote the fight.
