Tommy Fury has claimed he would ‘comfortably beat’ Jake Paul and labelled the controversial American as ‘fake’.

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s brother and the YouTuber-turned-boxer are expected to fight in the near future following several heated exchanges online.

Fury appeared on social media with Tyson publicly calling Paul out last week, with the American responding with a video of his own where he revealed an direct message dated at 2018 sent to him by the former Love Island star’s girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, which has later been revealed to be fake.

In response to that particular tweet, Molly-Mae responded: ‘Times must be hard when you’re having to fake a DM….photoshop is scary.’ 

And Fury supported these claims, adding that the use of a white emoji, which was not available in 2018, proves the screenshot was edited. 

On the fake DM, Fury told TalkSPORT: ‘We all know that wasn’t true. That’s the kind of person Jake Paul is, he tries to come out with all these things.

‘He’s got his team in the back working on fake DMs, saying ‘let’s do this and let’s do that’.

‘If he’d checked his stuff and was that good he’d have understood the white heart wasn’t approved until 2019 and the DM was supposed to be sent in 2018.

‘So he can’t be very good at his job. That’s the type of person he is but it doesn’t matter to me. Fake news is fake news. He’s a fake person who fights NBA fighters. So he’s just fake all round and he’s not going to get under my skin.’

Paul has had an unusual journey into professional boxing but has gained a large following through his YouTube success, with a 3-0 record so far in the sport. 

While Fury’s next fight is against journeyman Andy Bishop on June 5 on the Daniel Dubois and Bodgan Dinu undercard, he is highly expected to be one of Paul’s next opponents.

On a potential grudge fight between the pair, Fury added: ‘But if you’re asking me would I like to take the fight? Would it be a comfortable night’s work and would it be beneficial to me? Yeah it ticks every box so why not.

‘I’m going to continue with my career so if he wants to fight, which is highly unlikely as he’s got no balls, I’ll happily take that fight.

‘I’m not going to take any detours for Jake Paul in the way I do things. I’m going to keep doing me, training the way I’m training and the fighters I fight to get that experience.

‘If Jake Paul comes into it, that’s fine, I’ll happily fight with him very comfortably. It’s a good thing as I don’t have to change what I’m going to do.

‘If he wants to fight, it’s here because it’s a comfortable night’s work and very beneficial. I’m not going to start changing my career for Jake Paul.’

The pair’s bitter rivalry took another step on Sunday when Paul labelled Fury ’embarrassing’ after it was revealed his next fight would be against 38-year-old Bishop, who has a 0-14 record.

Paul previously said the younger brother of Tyson Fury was ’embarrassing’ his family’s name

On his upcoming fight, the 5-0 star said: ‘I’ve got serious business to attend on June 5, it’s another step in my career and another must-win fight. It’s another step along the road.

‘Every fight is a world title fight and that’s why I train like it’s a world title fight. I’ve been in Miami with the best. 

‘I’m in phenomenal shape and training even harder in this last week and even though it’s a four round fight you’ve got to do this otherwise you’re not going to get to the big fights. Every single fight is crucial at this stage.’
