Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury is set to take place on December 18 in Miami.
Fury defeated Anthony Taylor in round four on Paul’s undercard in August and the pair were in humiliation before the night was over.
Paul defeated Tyron Woodley via split decision in Ohio.
The judges scored it 77-75, 79-74, 75-77 in favor of Paul.
And soon attention shifted to who the 24-year-old YouTuber would fight next.
The two have been constantly going back and forth online in recent months but the conversation progressed behind the scenes.
And despite recent bumps in the road, SunSport understands that a deal is over for a Christmas cracker.
Online personality Paul had initially indicated that he would postpone the fight for Fury and take a break from boxing.

But soon he clashed with Britain backstage and called for the fight to be staged.
Negotiations soon ensued, but Fury publicly admitted that he had turned down two offers, believing he had been let down.
Paul’s efforts to increase the deal to $1 million, as well as additional pay-per-view upsides, were also knocked back.
But Fury promoter Frank Warren recently confirmed that talks are heading in the right direction, as he was confident a deal would be completed.
So how do potential rivals compare?
Paul turned 24 in January and is more than two years older than his British counterpart, who celebrated his 22nd birthday in May.
Both fighters have spotless records – Fury is 7-0 and Paul is 4-0.
Four of Fury’s seven victories have been won by KO, while three of Paul’s four victories have ended within walking distance.
Both fight with a conservative stance – 6 feet 1 inch is an inch taller than Paul Fury but ‘TNT’ has a longer reach, ranging from 80 to 76 inches.
However, she has the biggest Instagram followers and will have a huge fan base behind to cheer from home.
Reality TV sensation Fury has an impressive 3.7m.
But ‘The Problem Child’ – fellow YouTuber Logan’s younger brother – knocked his opponent out of the water with 17.5m.
