Jake Paul Says Hasbulla Will Be In His Corner For Fight Against Tommy Fury

Last weekend in Abu Dhabi, Hasbulla stole the show.

The internet sensation was in attendance for UFC 267, seen squaring off with the likes of Daniel Cormier and Antonio Minotauro Nogueira backstage before showing support for his good friend Islam Makhachev octagon-side.

He even went nose-to-nose with rival Abdu Rozak at one point.

The Russian hero was certainly a favourite among MMA fans over the weekend and now Jake Paul wants a piece of him.

It was recently announced that Tommy Fury's older sibling Tyson will be jetting out to America to help his brother train for the grudge match.

It's understood heavyweight world champion Tyson will also be in Tommy's corner when the first bell rings on fight night.

In response to that news, Paul decided to reveal exactly who will be in his corner too.

On his Instagram story, the YouTuber said: "Official announcement! It's confirmed that Hasbulla will be coming to my camp in a few weeks to train and corner me for this fight."

He then posted a poll for fans to vote "which coach will win": Hasbulla or Tyson Fury.

This stunt is just the latest in a long line of antics coming from Jake Paul's camp.

From outlandish bets to taking below-the-belt shots and Fury and his family, trash-talking YouTuber Paul certainly hasn't held back when it comes to the mental warfare side of things.

Besides, the two rivals have been going back-and-forth for months in various press conference and on social media.

Now, though, they can finally settle their differences inside the ring with a date and time reportedly signed off.

The event, according to the American, the bout is due to take place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay on the 18th of December.

"Pucker up Timmy, it's time to kiss ur last name and ur family's boxing legacy goodbye," Paul's announcement post on Twitter read.

"DEC 18th Im changing this wanker's name to Tommy Fumbles and celebrating with Tom Brady. Tickets on sale November 10th!"
