John Fury has hailed Jake Paul’s attempt to become a professional boxer and demanded that the YouTuber take on his son Tommy on the undercard of Tyson’s bout with Deontay Wilder.
The older Fury brother will be completing his trilogy against Wilder in a controversial bout in Las Vegas in July.
Tyson drew his first fight against the American before winning a rematch in February 2020, with a judge recently ruling that a trilogy bout would have to be fought despite Fury looking set to fight Anthony Joshua.
Paul meanwhile has continually called out the younger Fury brother ever since moving into the ring.
The duo have had a long-running spat, with both men posting videos on social media making digs at the other.
Tommy has had his own successful career in the ring, beating Jordan Grant on Saturday night to win his sixth bout of his career.
If he did fight Fury, it would be the first time that Paul has taken on an out-and-out professional boxer.

The 24-year-old’s previous opponents have been a mix of former NBA and UFC stars, in addition to YouTubers Deji and AnEsonGib.
But Tommy’s father John is hopeful that the American’s will finally make good on the feud and take on his son in the ring this summer.
“Good on Jake Paul for doing what he's doing. At the end of the day, good luck to the geezer. Anyone who gets in the ring is a game man,” he told BT Sport.

Fury then raised his voice and added: “Jake Paul, we'll have you next mate. If you [Steve Bunce, interviewer] think he's good, then we will take Jake Paul next. Tyson's undercard, July 24, Jake Paul.”
The undercard for the Fury v Wilder bout still to be announced, meaning there is a possibility the fight could happen.
