Jake Paul and Tommy Fury finally collide in Saudi Arabia this weekend as their red-hot rivalry that has raged for two years finally comes to a head.

After two postponements and countless social media scraps, the opening bell is almost upon us with one man set to lose their undefeated record.

YouTuber-turned knockout artist Paul has dispatched all six of his opponents to date but is yet to come up against someone with genuine boxing pedigree.

Former Love Island star Fury has had that instilled in him most of his life but is also chasing a statement win – with older brother and world champion Tyson warning he will not be allowed to come home if he suffers defeat.

Here, some of the biggest names in boxing past and present give their predictions ahead of fight night.

Mike Tyson, former heavyweight champion

‘I’ve never seen Fury fight, I don’t think he’ll be able to beat Jake Paul. Jake Paul is getting better and better as he fights and I don’t know if they brought him over here to lose – we’re going to find out.

‘Somebody is getting knocked out, somebody is going down. Someone’s 0 has got to go.’

Prediction? Paul win

Tyson Fury, WBC heavyweight champion

‘The two YouTube people get to battle it out for the king of the YouTubers.

‘It’s going to be fun, and I expect Tommy to chin him. If he doesn’t he can stay in Saudi Arabia.’

Prediction? Fury win

Eddie Hearn, Matchroom Boxing chief

‘I have had a total U-turn on this fight. I thought Jake Paul was going to win this fight. I think Jake Paul has absolutely no chance to win this fight at all.

‘If Tommy Fury comes out aggressively and puts it on Jake Paul, this fight will not go two rounds.

‘This is a massive U-turn for me because both are limited. But Tommy Fury as limited as he is as a professional boxer, has been boxing for ten, 12 years, maybe more. He has been in the ring against professional fighters, he has experienced that, he’s done the hard spars. He’s an outsider in this fight… he’s going to win this fight by stoppage.’

Prediction? Fury win

KSI, potential opponent for Fury and Paul

‘Honestly, I think Jake Paul as much as I hate to say it, is going to win. I truly think Jake Paul has the better mindset and wants it more than Tommy.

‘I don’t think Jake is a better boxer than Tommy Fury but I think Tommy Fury is just a bit all over the place at the moment.’

Prediction? Paul win

Anthony Taylor, Paul’s sparring partner and former Fury opponent

‘Tommy doesn’t possess the knockout power, we don’t see it, he doesn’t have that dog in him.

‘He talks a good game saying, ‘I’m going to knock you out’, but he never knocks anybody out besides the last couple fighters he’s fought who were paid to lose.

‘If you can’t knock me out then you sure as hell aren’t knocking Jake Paul out.

‘Jake [will win] by knockout in six rounds. Tommy doesn’t have the gas tank to do eight rounds.’

Prediction? Paul win

Frazer Clarke, heavyweight contender

‘I’m invested in the fight at this stage and I have been packing Paul to win all along, I think he makes it so awkward for Tommy, very difficult to read. But I would like Tommy Fury to do a job on him, for the sake of boxing.’

Prediction? Paul win

Winner: Paul 4-2 Fury
