The heavyweight ace revealed he is on the undercard of the main event – and begged fans not to ‘take it too seriously’.

Dubois told GiveMeSport: “It is what it is, man. It’s going to be lively, it’ll be fun, it’s going to be a good show.

“People shouldn’t take it too seriously.

SunSport understands a deal is over the line for a blockbuster December showdown.

Both fighters were on show as recently as August 28 on the same card, with Paul beating ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, over eight rounds.

Earlier in the night, Fury, 22, did the same against the YouTube star’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on points in a four-rounder.

The rival fighters then clashed backstage with their opposing teams before security had to pull them apart.

Negotiations soon followed but Fury publicly admitted he turned two offers down, believing he had been lowballed.

Paul’s effort to bump up the deal to $1million, plus additional pay-per-view upsides, were also knocked back.

But Fury’s promoter Frank Warren recently confirmed talks were heading in the right direction, as he grew confident a deal would be met.

Dubois – another star on Warren’s books – now seems to have confirmed the scrap will go ahead.
