And it means his mega showdown with YouTuber Paul – scheduled for December 18 in Tampa, Florida – is off.

But TNT insisted he still plans to fight, and beat, his American rival in 2022.

Fury said: “I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.

“The beginning of my camp was going so incredibly and I never expected anything to come in my way from a victory on December 18.

“I can't express now disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year.

“I want this fight to happen more than anything.

“I'm now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date.”

Fury's promoter Frank Warren added: “We are gutted for Tommy.

“This was a big opportunity for him to show the world what he can do.

“Unfortunately, he’s had to withdraw now as he’s clearly not anywhere near a hundred per cent.

“We’ll be working with Jake Paul’s team to see if we can reschedule for the new year.”

REPLACEMENT ALREADY FOUND

Paul will instead fight Tyron Woodley in a rematch of their August bout – with the ex-UFC star already in training and offered an extra $500,000 [£377,000] if he secures a revenge knockout.

The Problem Child blasted on Twitter: “It is official, Tommy Fury is boxing's biggest b***h.

“I couldn't believe the news at first, it still doesn't even seem real. He fumbled the biggest bag of his life.

“Now he will be watching at home, paying me $60 instead of getting paid millions of dollars to fight me.

“I've fought with a broken nose, I've fought sick, get the f*** over it – this is boxing.”
