Inside the purpose-built 8,000-seat Diriyah Arena made in just TWO WEEKS for Jake Paul's fight with Tommy Fury | The Sun

JAKE PAUL and Tommy Fury will settle their score inside the 8,000-seat purpose-built Diriyah Arena made in just TWO WEEKS.

Over two years of bitter feuding will be buried in the Saudi Arabia desert in tonight's main event.

Fury twice pulled out of the grudge match in the past, due to rib injury in December 2021 and US visa issues last August.

The Stateside travel woes still persists, which has taken the bitter pay-per-view bout to the Middle East.

Their fight was announced with only a month to go, and the arena built in even less time.

Most Valuable Promotions' Paul Cambria revealed the site was a parking lot just days before fight week.

Cambria said: "The actual venue itself, considering that just a week ago or two weeks ago it was a parking lot, now they're putting in enough seats for 5,000-8,000 people."

The pair of celebrity boxing rivals faced off for the final time at their weigh in and BOTH promised knockouts.

Fury, 23, roared: "His time is up. Tomorrow night his time is up.

"Jake Paul will no longer be boxing, I'm going to put this man away inside four rounds.

"This professional boxer is going down, man. It's easy, it's simple. I'm ready, calm, cool and collected.

"This is what I do, he's never been in a moment like that. He's shaking, you can see the nerves running through his system. He can't stop moving.

"I'm chill, I'm a real killer, I don't have to do all that acting s***, I'm a real f*****g dog, this is how I do it."
