The foes are set to announce the latest rescheduling of their grudge match, slated for February 25 in Saudi Arabia
This is the third time the pair will attempt to settle their score in the ring.
Fury, 23, was forced to pull out in December 2021 due to a rib injury and then last August amid a US visa issue.
The travel woe still persists today, which left the UK and Middle East as frontrunners to host the bitter bout.
Paul, 26, even offered to travel to Manchester on February 18 and fight Fury on enemy territory.
But a more lucrative deal in Saudi Arabia a week later was proposed and looks to have won the race.
And now Fury, who is closing in on his own mega-fight with Oleksandr Usyk to unify the heavyweight titles, says it is also confirmed.
The Gypsy King told Seconds Out: “Tommy and Jake Paul have got it going on. That’s an imminent announcement coming up for that as well.
“Yeah, we’re almost over the line with that, we should be announcing that quite soon. I’m not going to announce it because they’ve got to do it themselves.”
And Fury also shed light on how he will prepare his brother for the showdown.
He added: “Yeah I’m going to put a blonde wig on, and I’m going to chat absolute boll***s every day in the gym just to get him going.”
Tommy Fury last boxed in Dubai in November in a last-minute exhibition against Rolly Lambert, 33 and has a pro record of 8-0 in the ring.
Paul beat UFC legend Anderson Silva, 46, to mark the biggest win in his 6-0 career the month previous to that.
