JAKE PAUL revealed talks to fight Tommy Fury are once again being revived – with a deal in place for February in the UK.
The boxing rivals have TWICE signed for a celebrity grudge match but both times Fury was withdrawn.
Firstly, he suffered a rib injury last December before running into US visa issues ahead of their rescheduled August date.
It means Paul will have to cross enemy lines to get his hands on Fury, who recently FaceTimed with the YouTuber-turned-boxer.
And they both agreed to see if three really is the lucky number and try for a hat-trick of times.
Paul, 25, said on his podcast: "Had a call with Tommy Fury. Yeah, they're saying we're going to fight in February.

He added: "I think parts of it are shady, I don't think we're getting the full truth on everything.
"But regardless, it's a great matchup and I really want to knock him out."
Tyron Woodley, 40, replaced Fury, 23, last and was knocked out in his rematch with Paul, four months after losing on points.
