And he has given his celebrity boxing rival just seven days to return a signed contract by.

But Hall of Fame promoter Warren reckons that is enough time to get a deal over the line.

He said on talkSPORT: “It will probably be in late February or March.

“The reason why it didn’t go [before], the contracts were all signed, because of the problems he had with the US immigration.

“We are all past that now. Jake is up for coming over here and we have to get the deal finalised in the next week or so.”

Twice the famous boxing foes have signed to fight but both times Fury, 23, was withdrawn.

He suffered a rib injury last December and then was pulled out in the rehashed date in August amid a US visa issue, which still persists.

Paul, 25, was a special guest commentator at the Coca-Cola Arena as Fury boxed late replacement Rolly Lambert in an exhibition.

The American heckled from ringside and the two later clashed post-fight with security having to restrain them as their rivalry hit new heights.

Fury’s dad and coach John later claimed he shook hands with Paul’s manager Nakisa Bidarian over a bout in February.

And the YouTuber-turned 6-0 boxer insisted he has no problem crossing enemy territory to finally commence battle.

He tweeted: “I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in February.

“I’ll come to his country, no more running. His baby is due then and you’ve said it’s no issue.

“Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving you seven days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on.”

Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions company revealed they will pay their man while Warren will take care of Fury’s financials.

MVP posted: “John Fury has asked for February. Jake Paul has agreed.

“All that is needed now is for Frank Warren to get Tommy Fury to sign. MVP is paying Jake Paul and Frank Warren is paying Tommy Fury.”
