Fury, the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is also in the embryonic stages of his boxing career and has repeatedly called the social media star out.

The 21-year-old shot into the mainstream by appearing on Love Island in 2019, beginning his boxing career shortly after returning from the villa.

But now he could be thrust into the biggest fight of his career already against the American, who continues to divide opinion with his outlandish comments.

Paul may well have started boxing for hits online, but now is eager to test himself a true fighting man in Fury.

“I think it’d be a massive fight,” Paul told ESPN. “He’s fought scrubs to make himself look good.

“People will say the same about me, but I’ve fought guys with winning records like Ben Askren and AnEsonGib.

“Our teams are talking and trying to figure something out.”

Fury is represented by the legendary Frank Warren, who also guides ‘The Gypsy King’. Speaking on Saturday night, Warren threw down the challenge to Paul to cease talking and start making the fight happen.

“Actions speak louder than words,” Warren told iFL TV. “I know Jake has this following on YouTube and he says all the right things, but do it.

“We want to make the fight, it’s really easy; he takes 50%, Tommy takes 50%. Make the fight, let’s get it done.

“Not a problem with us at all, get it on. Tommy wants it so stop talking about it and do it. That’s the problem with these guys, they all seem to want to talk a lot. They say what they want to do and look for easy touches.

“Triller can do the worldwide TV rights and BT does the British ones, let’s get it on. If you’re not going to do it, stop telling people that you want it.”
