Jake Paul says Tommy "doesn’t deserve" payday and he’d rather fight Tyson Fury

Jake Paul has insisted that he would now rather fight heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury, than the Gypsy King's younger brother Tommy, who he believes 'doesn’t deserve' a payday.

Paul was set to take on Tommy in an eagerly anticipated bout in Tampa, Florida, last month, however Fury was forced to pull out just two weeks before due to a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.

Instead the YouTuber-turned-boxer took on previous opponent Tyron Woodley, who he defeated for a second time thanks to a brutal knockout in round six.

After being forced out of the original fight through injury, Fury has revealed that he would like to still get a shot at Paul in the ring – who he spent months exchanging verbal blows with over social media.

Despite this the American believes his original opponent is undeserving of the fight – and the lucrative pay day – and instead admitted he would rather take on the Englishman's heavyweight champion brother.

Paul told Volume Sports: "[Tommy Fury] wants the payday. But I said it before, I don't wanna take the fight with him, he doesn't deserve it.

"I'd rather fight Tyson Fury. I'll fight his brother or his dad before I'll fight Tommy."

Due to Fury and Paul's social media squabbling, a once joked about fight turned into one of the most exciting of the year, until the former Love Islander dropped out.

And following the cancellation, the Englishman believes that he has 'unfinished business' with the YouTuber.

Fury told MMA Hour: "The fact of the matter is there's unfinished business here and this fight needs to take place, because how can he be serious about fighting if he's never fought a boxer before? How can he be serious about this?"

Since his second victory over Woodley, Paul has made a number of hints that he may now head into the MMA scene and take up a new challenge, especially after a number of heated online conversations with UFC boss Dana White.

However, Fury has warned his rival that if he does make the switch to the Octagon, all of his credibility in the boxing world will be lost.

The 22-year-old added: "He keeps referring to the UFC. If he wants to go and fight in the UFC, don't put on a pair of boxing gloves again and go and fight in the UFC.

"Don't call yourself a boxer if you've never ever fought one."
