Jake Paul and Tommy Fury's collective prize money is set to be a staggering amount

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury's collective prize money is set to be a staggering amount

The stakes are seriously high.

Unless you've been living under a rock, then you'll know that the highly anticipated Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight is happening tonight (26 February).

The fight, which is being billed as 'The Truth', will air at around 9:30 pm UK time, and the prize pot up for grabs is absolutely massive.

The staggering amount reportedly available will be paid after the pair finally battle it out after the event was cancelled multiple times.

As reported by The Mirror, Fury is reportedly earning in the region of £2.5-3 million for the fight while YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul is speculated to be earning £10 million.

When questioned if Fury was getting paid £2.5 million for the fight, Paul simply said he 'can't confirm or deny', but he said what he was being paid is 'always' a lot more.

Apparently, the pair have a 'double or nothing' bet going on between them, which means that the loser has to pay the winner twice their earnings - so if Paul emerges victorious, Fury could well owe him as much as £20 million.

However, while there is a lot of money up for grabs, Fury has insisted that he doesn't care about money - he just wants to knock his rival out.

Paul has asserted that he's making a lot more than Fury.

He told the Mirror Fighting: "Trust me, the payout is very, very good. But at the end of the day, I'm not interested in that. Throughout the whole build-up of this fight, money has not entered my head once. All that's entered my head is knocking Jake Paul out.

"Honestly, I've not thought about the money once, it doesn't get me up for it what gets me up for it is going in the ring with Jake Paul and flattening him. The money is great, it comes along with the sport but the fight is what I'm actually looking forward to here."

Fury just wants to knock Paul out.

However, presumably because of the amount of money Fury stands to lose, according to Paul, he's gone 'as silent as a mouse' when it comes to actually signing on the bet.

The bet first became known at a press conference on Thursday (23 January) when Paul told Fury that he'd pay him twice his earnings if he won.

"I think we make a deal then, since you're so confident," Paul said.

"I think we make a deal. If you win, I'll pay you double what I'm paying you already.

"But if I win, I take everything that I'm paying you. Deal or no deal, seeing as you're so confident?"

An official contract for the bet hasn't yet been signed.

The pair then squared up to each other before 'Big John' Fury answered on the former Love Island star's behalf.

"You've got a deal," he said.

"All or nothing. You've heard it."
