The 24-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer will clash with former Love Island star Fury on 18th December at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
Paul has notched up a 4-0 boxing record and last competed in his split-decision win over former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley in August.
Fury holds an undefeated 7-0 record and competed on the Paul vs Woodley undercard against Anthony Taylor, who he defeated by unanimous decision.
Paul and Fury, who have frequently engaged in a heated rivalry on social media, were involved in a tense face-to-face backstage incident in Cleveland, Ohio.
The YouTube star claimed that Fury’s family is “underestimating my ability” and his forthcoming opponent “couldn't do anything to harm my sparring partner.”
Paul is already looking to the future and identified YouTube rival KSI as the next name on his hitlist, saying his rival is “scared” of him.
“His whole family is underestimating my ability and how good I am as a boxer. Tommy Fury couldn't do anything to harm my sparring partner Anthony Taylor,” Paul said (via Boxing Scene).
“All love to Anthony Taylor, but height difference, weight difference. He didn't do a single thing to Anthony and there were points where Anthony was in control, winning, landing harder punches.
“So, look what I'm going to do to this guy. It's going to be a massacre, a Boston Tea Party 2.0. I'm taking this motherf****r and throwing him overboard.
“Tommy, he's a great boxer, he's undefeated, he's got fast hands, he's quick, he comes from a legendary bloodline, so long and so forth. I just think that boy will crack under pressure. And I've taken out everyone from the UK.
“Deji, Joe Weller, Gib, KSI's scared, he's really next up on the list. And we see how they are in fights, all of them have cracked, all of them have lost. Once they get on the big stage against me, he's [Fury] going to crack.
“To answer it, I think Tommy is an easier fight than Tyron for sure. And I think I knock him out, for sure. And I know I said that about Tyron, but that's really the only time I've been wrong.
“Tyron, he came ready to fight that night and he's been hit by some big guys. Tommy's never even been past four rounds. We'll see what happens.”
Jake has been keen to avenge brother Logan Paul’s defeat to KSI and vowed to “pummel his face into the canvas.”
YouTuber-turned-rapper KSI, 28, has refused to rule out a fight with Paul’s younger brother and claimed that he feels he needs to “f**k him up.”
Tommy, who is the younger brother of WBC champ Tyson Fury, has vowed to “end” Paul’s boxing career and says there will be “no more Jake Paul after we fight.”
