Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are set to settle their differences at Madison Square Garden on August 6 – and their partners Julia Rose and Molly-Mae Hague could yet take part in a bizarre bout of their own.
Paul's partner Julia has asked her one million followers on Instagram whether she and the former Love Island star should take part in mud wrestling on the undercard of their summer bout that will be aired on pay-per-view.
Molly-Mae, who is the creative director at PrettyLittleThing, seems unlikely to be caught up in the drama as her boyfriend looks to extend his professional record to 9-0 by beating the former Disney actor and YouTuber.

Julia asked her followers, alongside a poll: "Should molly and I mud wrestle?"
Having been online for nine hours, 85 per cent of responders have picked yes, with 15 per cent saying that they should not take part in a fight of their own.
Paul, 25, had been very critical of Fury's ability in the past, but now changed his tune to say it would be by far the biggest win of his career after five professional victories.

He said: "All jokes aside, this is my toughest test yet. You guys wanted me to fight a real boxer.
"You guys have been tormenting me day after day out, 'fight a real boxer, fight a real boxer'."
Tyson Fury's younger brother Tommy, 23, announced on Thursday that the fight was going ahead after Paul complained over alleged delays on the side of his opponent.
Fury said on Instagram on Thursday (June 23): "Just to let you all know, the fight on August 6 is going ahead.
"The contract has been signed after weeks and weeks of waiting for Jake Paul to sign up to the drugs testing and potentially putting the fight at risk, he’s finally signed up to the drugs testing.
"We’ve agreed a contract that we’re happy with, so the fight is going ahead and I’ll see you August 6."
