Watch Jake Paul's legs shake during brutal training exercise as he bulks up for Tommy Fury fight | The Sun
JAKE PAUL was left with shaky legs during a brutal training exercise in preparation for his fight with Tommy Fury.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer is in camp for the latest rescheduling of his grudge match against Fury, on February 26 in Saudi Arabia.
They officially came face-to-face for the first time over the weekend at Wembley Arena, as tempers threatened to boil over.
But Paul appears to have flown back to Dubai, where he will conclude his training ahead of the fight 700 miles away.
The American has been based in sunny Puerto Rico for the past year but has set up shop in the Middle East for his boxing return.
And it will be business as usual for Paul, who has lofty goals of becoming a world champion in the sport he debuted in just three years ago.

He told Sky Sports: "I want to become a world champion.
"I'm going to become a world champion and these fights are all just stepping stones to get there. I'm slowly improving.
"I've sparred against world champions and done phenomenal against them, so who knows what can happen in two to three years from now when I go into my athletic prime?
"I'm starting to really, really get this sport and all aspects of it. It's really actually scary what could possibly happen.

"I think not only will I become a world champion, I think I will be a dominant world champion and knock someone out for the belt."
Fury twice pulled out of facing Paul in the past, due to a rib injury in December 2021 and amid a US visa issue last August.
But he gets a third crack after the two renegotiated for a blockbuster in the desert.
Paul has knocked out ex-MMA champions in Ben Askren, 38, Tyron Woodley, 40, and Anderson Silva, 47, in the past two years.
But Fury, 23, will be his first opponent with a recognised professional boxing record.
Although Paul, 26, warned the 2019 Love Island star will suffer the same fate as the fallen trio of former UFC stars.

He said: "You can expect Fury face down on the canvas, unconscious and it's going to happen fast. Get your popcorn but don't blink.
"They hate on me beating Tyron Woodley, they hate on me beating Anderson Silva, not understanding that they are both 10 times better boxers than Tommy Fury.
"So the critics and the sheep who believe Jake Paul hasn't fought a real boxer, someone his age, they're technically right and this checks that off. So that's going to be fun to shut those people up.
"The kid is good but he's not great and he's never been in there with someone who wants it more than him.
"I'm hyper-competitive and I want to be the best at whatever it is that I do.
"So I feel like my whole entire life has led me up to this moment.
"To come in with a different sort of narrative, through YouTube and Disney and to change the sport of boxing, how the promotion's done, how the fighters are paid, how the events are looking…
"That excites me, to innovate in this sport that has needed it for the past decade or so.
