JAKE PAUL posed with a tiger on a LEAD during his time in Dubai – where his grudge fight with Tommy Fury edged closer.
The YouTuber-turned boxer is coming off the biggest win of his career, beating 47-year-old UFC legend Anderson Silva in October.
He then travelled to Saudi Arabia to support his brother Logan in the WWE before making the trip to Dubai.
Paul took some time out and showed off his trip online, including selfies with a monkey and driving a red Ferrari.

Paul finished his time in Dubai as a special guest commentator when Fury boxed late replacement Rolly Lambert in an exhibition.

Paul, 25, tweeted: "I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in February.
“I’ll come to his country, no more running. His baby is due then and you’ve said it’s no issue.
“Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving you seven days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on.”
Twice the famous boxing foes have signed to fight but both times Fury, 23, was withdrawn.
He suffered a rib injury last December and then was pulled out in the rehashed date in August amid a US visa issue, which still persists.
Promoter Frank Warren reckons the seven-day deadline is enough time to get a deal over the line.
