Tommy Fury's fight with Jake Paul is off, with an official confirmation of the news expected to follow later today.

It comes as a huge blow to boxing fans across the globe, who were looking forward to seeing the two fledgling boxers continue their career.

However, those plans have been shattered by the news that Fury has pulled out of the bout just 12 days before it was due to take place.

It comes in a week where Fury was finally due to travel to the United States for the final stint of his preparations, having returned to the UK for personal reasons and changing his camp as a result.

It has not yet been official confirmed why Fury has pulled out, but the Manchester-born fighter had been suffering with a cold while there are also claims he has picked up an injury.

Full details are expected to be shared alongside the official confirmation of the cancellation of the bout - where Tyron Woodley is likely to be named as Paul 's new opponent.

The UFC superstar was defeated by Paul in Cleveland earlier this year, when Fury was victorious against Anthony Taylor on the event's undercard.

Fury has encountered numerous setbacks in his preparation for the fight, having initially been due to train with Tyson Fury's trainer Sugarhill Steward in the United States but returned to the UK for personal reasons.

He has since trained alongside his half-brother and father, John Fury, in Morecambe but has been absent from recent training clips, likely due to the cold he had been suffering with.

It remains to be seen whether the bout against Paul will be rearranged further down the line or whether this is the end for the pair and their feud.
