What time is Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury? Fight date, UK start time and where to watch live on TV

The on-again, off-again fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury is just days away from finally taking place.

The grudge match between the YouTuber and former Love Island contestant has become something of a circus, with multiple cancellations turning their rivalry into nothing more than a war of words.

Fury – brother of world champion Tyson – was a boxer before entering the Love Island villa and has an 8-0 record, while Paul has won all six of his bouts since taking up professional boxing.

Here is everything you need to know about the fight, and how to watch it in the UK.

When is the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight?

Paul vs Fury is set to take place on Sunday 26 February in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. The fight is being billed as “The Truth”.

The undercard is set to get underway at 7pm GMT, with ring walks for the main event expected to start at around 10pm GMT.

These timings could change due to the length of the undercard fights.

The fight will be broadcast exclusively on BT Sport Box Office, which is Sky channel 494, and also available through the BT Sport app. It is likely to cost £19.95, in line with previous BT Sport offerings.

How did the pair become rivals?

Paul and Fury were originally set to fight in December 2021, but Fury had to pull out after breaking a rib in training.

They were then scheduled to fight in the US last year, but Fury was stopped from boarding his plane from Heathrow to the States because his Esta – which allows people to travel to the US for short visits – was denied.

Rather than scrapping in the ring, the pair have instead exchanged frequent insults on social media.

Visiongain has published a new report entitled Subsea Desalination 2023-2033. It includes profiles of Subsea Desalination and Forecasts Market Segment by Type, (Floating Desalination Platform, Deep Sea Space Station (DSSS)) Market Segment by Systems, (Digital Twin Subsea Systems, Cognitive Autonomous Subsea System, Intelligent Subsea Systems, Other Subsea Systems) Market Segment by Technology, (Reverse Osmosis (RO), Electrodialysis (ED), Forward Osmosis (FO), Biomimetic Membranes, Other Technology) Market Segment by Power Type, (Wind Powered, Solar Powered, Wave Powered, Nuclear Powered, Fuel Powered, Other Power Type) plus COVID-19 Impact Analysis and Recovery Pattern Analysis (“V”-shaped, “W”-shaped, “U”-shaped, “L”-shaped), Profiles of Leading Companies, Region and Country. 

The global subsea desalination market was valued at US$1,687 million in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.0% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

Reducing Fresh Water Resources Levels Are Increasing Demand for Desalination

Water comprises 70% of our world, and it is simple to believe that it will always be plenty. However, freshwater—the substance we drink, bathe in, and use to irrigate our farm fields—is extremely scarce. Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh water, and two-thirds of that is trapped in frozen glaciers or otherwise unavailable for human consumption. As a result, around 1.1 million people globally lack access to water, and a total of 2.7 million face water scarcity for at least one month of the year. Inadequate sanitation is also a concern for 2.4 million people, exposing them to diseases such as cholera and typhoid fever, as well as other water-borne disorders. Every year, diarrheal diseases kill two million people, usually children.

London’s ‘tap and go’ ticketing system to be rolled out across south east England


ail commuters across the South-East are set to benefit from cheaper travel under a “smart ticketing” revolution being introduced across the suburbs.

Passengers travelling in and out of the capital will be able to use pay-as-you-go at more than 230 stations – meaning they will automatically benefit from daily and weekly fares capping.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper says the new system will be “hassle free” and tackle the biggest concern of passengers – whether they are getting value for money.

Transport for London has been awarded an initial £68.7m by the Department for Transport to expand the electronic ticketing system already in use in the capital.

This will allow passengers to use bank cards or smartphones to pay for their journey rather than having to buy paper tickets or electronic tickets in advance.

An initial 52 suburban stations in the Home Counties are due to be converted by the end of the year, primarily on Chiltern, London Northwestern and C2C railways.

On Chiltern, this will benefit stations between TfL’s nine-zone network – which currently extends to Amersham and West Ruislip – and the branches north to Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

On London Northwestern, it would include stations north of Watford Junction, such as Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring.

On C2C, this would include stations from the Greater London boundary towards Southend and Shoeburyness.

A further 181 stations across the wider South-East rail network should be connected by March 2025.

The Department for Transport is due to confirm the names of the first 52 stations later this year. But TfL has begun work to upgrade the ticket barriers, under the “Project Oval” initiative.

TfL was chosen because of its work to expand smart ticketing to stations such as Reading on the Elizabeth line, and to Epsom

How Withings is Hoping to Unlock the Potential of Urinalysis

AZoSensors speaks with a representative from Withings about their newly unveiled product U-Scan, which hopes to provide users with regular insights into their health by detecting biomarkers in their urine.

Please could you introduce yourself and tell us about your current position at Withings?

My name is Julius Dewavrin; I am a Product Manager at Withings, leading the team responsible for the U-Scan product.

Who is Withings, and what are its core aims?

Withings, founded in 2008, is a pioneer in home health monitoring and the inventor of the first smart scale. Our mission has always been to create breakthrough technology that people love to make better health a part of daily life.

Withings has identified a new wealthy source of data for health which is: urine. After four years of development, Withings is proud to announce this new breakthrough innovation in line with our company’s vision.

Urine samples can offer insight into an individual’s health and are often the first step to diagnosis; why are they significant to health monitoring?

Urine is produced by the kidneys, which regulate the amount of water in the body and filter the blood, removing wastes and extra water to make urine. Indeed, we identified that urine is an extraordinary witness to assess and monitor one’s health.

With more than 3000 components, it reflects your dietary intake and can help diagnose and monitor certain diseases, such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, kidney stone, Urinary tract infection, liver disease and more. It also signals important events such as ovulation for women.

Also, it is an available biofluid that can be analyzed at home, much more accessible than blood tests, and its collection can be non-invasive. Despite the fact that a healthy adult urinates around seven times a day, urine analysis is only performed once a

IN VIDEO: Dog vs shark standoff thrills tourists on Bahamas boat tour | iNFOnews

Image Credit: FACEBOOK/Exuma Water Sports

February 17, 2023 – 9:00 PM

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The sight of a massive hammerhead shark was a rare treat for 32 travellers on a tour boat in the Bahamas this week. But then, something stranger still: A dog dove from a nearby dock to confront the monstrous sea creature.

Tourists aboard the four-hour excursion can be heard shouting and pleading with the dog to turn back, in a video circulating on social media. “Oh my god!” and “Get out baby!” and “Stop going after it!”

The dog ignored them and paddled after the 12-foot shark, which thrashed as the two animals circled each other in transparent turquoise waters near a private island in the southern Bahamas. Then the shark swam away slowly, much to the delight and surprise of the crowd.

“I don’t think the shark is going to mess with him!” exclaimed one man.

The shark had emerged from under the boat during a tour Wednesday in the southern Bahamas organized by Exuma Water Sports.

Company reservations manager Rebecca Lightbourn told The Associated Press on Friday that the black-and-tan dog always runs along the shore to greet the boat when it passes that island. But it’s the first time it was seen diving in.

“I guess this time the dog decided he wanted to protect his house or play with a really big fish in the water, so he went after it,” Lightbourn said.

When the shark swam away from the pier, the medium-sized dog scrambled back onto the rocks and loped away, earning applause from the tourists. The boat then headed to a popular area where tourists jump

Record-Breaking Aviator Barrington Irving and Flexjet Pilot Dickson Usher on Building a Career Flying Jets

To commemorate Black History Month, Robb Report is publishing a series of conversations between Black designers, thinkers and creators whose work is shaping the luxury sector across generations. This is installment two.

It didn’t take Barrington Irving, Jr. long to start giving back after he broke a Guinness World Record in 2007. At 23, he became the youngest person, and the first Black pilot, to solo-circumnavigate the globe. Just a year later, leading the “Build & Soar” summer class at Miami’s George T. Baker Aviation School, Irving taught a group of high-school students how to build a working airplane.

After completing the aircraft came the scary part. Despite harboring suspicions about its airworthiness, Irving kept his promise to the students and flew the Zenith XL. He took off from a private airport at Opa-Locka outside Miami and circled the airfield several times before landing safely.

More from Robb Report

Irving’s work with young people of color over the last 15 years via his Experience Aviation foundation and Flying Classroom has prompted many to pursue careers in aviation, from Air Force pilots to US Navy aviators to commercial airline pilots.

One of his brightest lights is Dickson Edwin Usher, known as “Usher” to his friends, who was in Irving’s “Build & Soar” class. Then a high school junior, Usher recalls wondering if Irving would really fly the homemade airplane. “He was standing there next to the airplane, his head bent deep in prayer,” Usher says. “At that point, I knew he would fly it.”

Fifteen years later, Usher is a pilot for Flexjet, with multiple aircraft type ratings and over 6,000 flight hours. He credits Irving’s class with nurturing his passion for aviation as well as giving him the fortitude for the long route it took to get there.

A dynamic approach boosts tourism of coastal city in Hainan

© Provided by Xinhua

HAIKOU, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) — Imagine a place where you can ride a motorboat in the blue sea, sip coffee while reading in a seaside bookstore, enjoy a candlelight dinner or simply unwind with some self-brewed tea on the beach under the starry night sky.

Such is the beauty of Tianya Haijiao, or “Edges of the heaven, corners of the sea,” a famous tourist attraction in Sanya, a coastal resort city in south China’s Hainan Province. In the past, the site mainly relied on its sea views to attract visitors, but nowadays, it offers a variety of tourism programs, as Sanya increasingly looks to refine its tourism sector.

“In Sanya, I get to visit the Buddhist site to pray in the morning, take a boat ride at noon and tour the sea park at night,” said a tourist surnamed Li who come from Beijing. “It’s amazing.”

In the past three years, Sanya authorities set up government funds subsidizing tourism companies to help stabilize the market, and have postponed, deducted or exempted their rents. This move “effectively encouraged the companies,” said Chen Zhenmin, head of the local tourism, culture, radio, television and sports bureau.

The city also designed plans to upgrade facilities and programs at tourist sites during the epidemic, Chen added.

As China optimized its COVID-19 response, tourists are flocking to Sanya for their holidays. During the Spring Festival holiday, for example, Sanya recorded more than 1.6 million tourist trips, 616,400 more than the number for the same period of 2019. Total tourism revenue stood at 4.87 billion yuan (710 million U.S. dollars), up 25.98 percent year on year, according to figures released by the city government.

Even after the holidays, tourist sites, hotels and duty-free shops are still packed with people.
