Jake Paul has upped the stakes ahead of his fight with Tommy Fury by drawing up an official winner-takes-all contract to confirm the terms of an informal bet.
In a face-to-face interview posted on Paul’s YouTube channel, the 26-year-old handed Fury a contract and explained: ‘If I win I take all the money you’re being paid, if you win I double it up’.
The former Love Island star said there was ‘no way’ he would lose the fight and promised he would sign the contract after it had been checked by his legal team, with his Dad and coach John stepping in to ensure the paperwork was ‘genuine’.
Paul them promised to ‘expose’ his opponent on social media if he does fail to sign the new contract.
Elsewhere in the video, Fury’s opponent also said he was ‘sorry’ for leaking the birth of his daughter and handed him a gift for her as an apology.
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will finally meet in the ring in Saudi Arabia on Sunday

The bitter rivals are finally set to go head-to-head in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on Sunday, with ringwalks set to begin at around 9.30PM UK time, after seeing previously scheduled bouts fall through on two occasions.
The long-term enemies came face-to-face at Wembley Arena shortly before Anthony Yarde was stopped by Artur Beterbiev in January this year, but Fury opted to skip their announcement press conference earlier in February, as bad blood continued to linger between the pair.
And the pair came faced up again in their pre-fight press conference on Thursday evening, where Mike Tyson, Derek Chisora and Tyson Fury were even present.
During several heated exchanges, Tommy Fury maintained he was supremely confident he would emerge victorious, leading to Jake Paul challenging him to a deal that the winner would take all the money on Sunday.
The deal now appears to be official, with Paul’s contract confirming the terms of their bet.
The former YouTuber (6-0) is looking to maintain his unbeaten record inside the ring and comes into the bout on the back of a decision win over MMA legend Anderson Silva. Fury will be the first professional boxer he has faced, however.
The brother of Tyson Fury also has a flawless record (8-0) and most recently defeated Daniel Bocianski on points in April last year.

Before the fight, John Fury had been in typically entertaining form at the press conference and explained how he had admiration for Paul, but was fully confident in his son to deliver.
He said: ‘We’ve come here to do one thing, knock Jake Paul. There is going to be defeat for Jake but good luck to him, he’s a nice kid and intelligent and without him we wouldn’t be here so Jake Paul thank you very much.
‘We’ve only been training for a knockout. People want to see clean, solid power punches from the off. Who’s got the best chin and the biggest “you know whats” and I know my son is packing both.
‘Come Monday, Tyson (Fury) will be the most proud brother in world. Tommy will give Jake Paul a beating even mad Tyson would be proud of.’
