The two rivals were slated to meet inside the squared circle on December 18 in Tampa Bay, Florida but Fury has pulled out due to a "medical emergency".
Rumours began to swirl on Monday morning and it was then verified by Paul, who put out a video on his social media rinsing Fury and revealing he would instead be fighting Tyron Woodley for a second time after the former UFC champ stepped in at the last minute.

"It is official, Tommy Fury is boxing's biggest b****," Paul told his followers.
"He has pulled out of the fight, the Furys have pulled of that fight due to a medical condition.
"Who knows what the f*** is going on in that camp, I think he has a bad case of purseitis. I couldn't believe the news at first, it still doesn't even seem real.
"He fumbled the biggest bag of his life. Now he'll be watching at home, paying $60 to watch me instead of being paid millions of dollars to fight me.
"I've fought with a broken nose, I've fought sick, get the f*** over it, this is boxing. It's official, he was scared, I think the pressure got to him - the s*** talk got to him.
“That’s the bad news. The good news is that Mr Tyron Woodley, we called him up, we were like, ‘hey, do you want to take the fight?’
“He has been training, he’s going ‘sure, let’s do the rematch, let’s run it back’. I’m giving him $500,000 extra if he can knock me out.
“Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2, leave no doubt. I didn’t knock him out the first time, I’m coming back and I’m getting that crazy W, that crazy highlight reel knockout. December 18th, the show must go on.”
Paul and Woodley fought an eight-rounder back in August in Cleveland, Ohio and the Problem Child won via split decision in what was his opponent's professional boxing debut.
He then got a 'I love Jake Paul tattoo' on his finger in the hope that he would receive an automatic rematch.
However, Paul turned his attentions to Fury, who fought Anthony Taylor on the undercard, and the two continued to engage in a bitter war of words.
Fury's dad John has also been well involved in the trash talk and did not pull any punches during the official press conference - squaring up to the television where Paul was on live link and making crude remarks about his other half.
A huge part of the build-up revolved around Fury, 22, having to change his name to 'Tommy Fumbles' if he failed to beat Paul.
Both his brother and dad also weighed in and effectively said they would disown the Love Island star if he didn't get the job done.
With the late change of plan, Paul is looking to knock out Woodley this time and move to 5-0 in his professional career.
