TOMMY FURY blasted Jake Paul by insisting their fight is ON for August 6.

And the Brit promised to lay the YouTuber “flat on the canvas” when they finally step into the ring together.

Tommy Fury hit back at Jake Paul as their Twitter row continued
The American YouTuber seems desperate to fight the Love Island star

Fury, 23, responded to a video message from his American rival, who claimed the former Love Island star was trying to pull the plug on the bout which should see him pocket a $2million purse.

But the brother of world champ Tyson said: “The fight is on. August 6th.

“Forget a team or any other bulls***. I don’t need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas.

“Oh and thanks for finally signing the drug testing… you only agreed to it when you realised the fight was at risk – who needs who,” followed by a laughing emoji.

The YouTuber, 25, shared a video slamming Fury, captioning it: “Tommy Fury and boxers like him are the reason this sport started to die. Tommy, you have 24 hours to fix this.”

He said: “Yet again I wake up to a text from my manager saying Tommy Fury is pulling out of the fight.

“We agreed to all of the terms, we’re 45 days away from the fight. We agreed to his $2m purse, to VADA testing, to extra rooms, extra flights, extra tickets.

“We are scheduled to have a press conference in New York next week until now.

“What’s the excuse? ‘Because my dad can’t be there with me.’

“Tommy you’re dad has been banned from the USA for 15 years, he’s not allowed in.

“I will agree to not have my team with me, we can both fight solo.

“This is what real boxers do, they make fights happen.

“You’re scared, you claim to be a pro boxer but you won’t make the fight.

“Where is all your s*** talk now? This is the biggest opportunity of your life and you’re fumbling the bag once again.

“I can’t believe how f***ing stupid you are, f***ing idiot.”

That video came after a bitter Twitter feud earlier on Wednesday.

Paul gave Tommy just 24 hours to accept their boxing grudge match.

The Brit – who pulled out of their December showdown due to illness and injury – took a full 11 minutes to respond and take up the offer.

The Problem Child wrote: “Tommy Fury, you pulled out last year.

“Then you agree to fight me now but your dad is trying to pull you out again?

“We’ve given you everything you asked for. $2M purse ✅ VADA testing ✅ Tampon’s [sic] ✅

“You have 24 hours 2 clear this up or I will never give u this opportunity again.”

To which the 5-0 Ohio man responded: “Actually we are scheduled to be in New York next week for the kick off press conference and I’m not your pal, buddy.”
