    But the WBC heavyweight champion has no intention of sharing the cage with The Maverick, telling iFL TV: “Logan can suck my balls.”
    Fury’s and Paul’s younger brothers – Tommy and Jake – are currently gearing up for a December dust-up in Florida.
    And Fury is confident Tommy would do a number on the social media phenoms in the same night.
    He added: “Tommy would batter them both.
    “I’m sure when he beats the one brother, the other one will want to fight him.
    “And then he can fight him as well. So, double bubble, son.”

    Fury – who is recovering from surgery on his elbows – is looking forward to travelling back to the States to corner his brother.
    He said: “We’re looking forward to getting out there and having a good party on.”
    Jake, 24, has made his feud with Tommy a personal one with several comments about his long-term girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.
    And Fury is itching to land a big right hand flush on the American’s jaw.
    The 33-year-old said: “I know how good Tommy is. I’ve seen him knock people spark out in the gym every day. He’s a real banger.
    “And when gets one shot on Logan Paul (Jake), he’ll be kissing the canvas. Goodnight Vienna. Bye, bye.
    “I want a big, old, dirty knockout like Tommy keeps talking about.”
    Tommy plans to spank The Problem Child in double-quick time, saying: “After our last fights on the same card, I rocked up with four people to his after-party.

    “I saw him and what did he do? He didn’t [do anything].
    “He sent a security man over to say: ‘Please leave’.
    “When he gets in the ring with me, he will find his level. He’ll be out in the first round.”

    Jake Paul trolls Nate Diaz after UFC star rubbishes Ben Askren’s claim YouTuber is ‘kind of good’ at boxing

    It was expected to be the ex-Disney actor’s hardest fight since turning professional, but he silenced his critics in emphatic fashion.
    Paul then outpointed former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on a split decision in August.
    And Askren, 37, has admitted he was surprised by Paul’s qualities during his appearance on Lex Freidman’s podcast.
    He said: “So the thing I said when I went in to fight him [Jake Paul] is maybe he’s good or maybe he’s not. We really have no idea to this point, you know
    “I knew that Tyron was a lot better in boxing than I was.
    “And so I thought that there is a good likelihood that Tyron beats him up but there is a chance that Jake is kind of good at this.

    “I think what played out is he’s kind of good at it.
    “And if you saw the way I saw it, he was still impressive in his showing and he has obviously put a lot of time into it. So, he’s not bad, I’ll say that much.”
    UFC welterweight Diaz hit out at Askren over his views, as he tweeted: “Coming from a retired wrestler who can’t fight or box.”
    Paul then chimed in, as he compared Diaz’s 13 defeats inside the octagon to Askren’s two.
    He remarked: “You have six times as many losses as Ben Askren. Let that sink in.”
    Diaz then fired back: “He sucks Jake. You’d get smoked n a real fight tho (sic).
    “You can’t really fight boxing matches with wrestlers only. Let that sink in.”
    Paul is currently preparing for his dust-up against Tommy Fury in Florida next month.

    And he has vowed to embarrass the Fury family as he looks to knock out TNT.
    He said: “One month to go until December 18th and a complete embarrassment of the Fury family.
    “Mark your calendars now to witness history in Tampa.”

    ‘He wasn’t a man of his word’ – Tyron Woodley rages with Jake Paul over tattoo as YouTuber fighting Tommy Fury instead

    TYRON WOODLEY has raged at Jake Paul not being ‘a man of his word’ after the YouTuber snubbed a rematch to face Tommy Fury instead. Woodley was beaten by Paul over eight rounds in August, but beforehand the two made a pre-fight wager.

    They bet the loser would have to get the winner’s name tattooed on them.
    But in the ring afterwards, Paul agreed to rematch Woodley, so long as the bet was honoured.
    It took Woodley a whole month to get ‘I love Jake Paul’ inked on his finger, which ultimately proved too little too late.
    He has since hit out at the social media star as he posted a link to their face-to-face sit down which was recorded days before their fight.
    Woodley, 39, tweeted: “Watched this for the 1st time! Every single word here happened.
    “He got gassed & ran. He didnt want to run it back. He wasnt a man of his word.”

    After beating Woodley, Paul turned his attention to Fury, 22, who beat his sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on the undercard.
    Recently the American talked down a rematch with Woodley, despite the tattoo reveal.
    Paul, 24, told TMZ Sport: “By the time he’d got the tattoo, we’d already moved on to fighting Tommy Fury and making that fight negotiation.
    “I don’t think people really wanna see Tyron vs Jake Paul again. He had his chance. He had his chance.”

    Tommy Fury has NO strengths over Jake Paul and will LOSE fight, claims Anthony Taylor who shared ring with both boxers

    TOMMY FURY has been accused of having NO strengths over Jake Paul by the man who has shared the ring with them both. Anthony Taylor, a 7-5 MMA fighter, shot to recognition as one of Paul’s sparring partners.

    But his profile increased further last August, when he was beaten over four rounds by Fury, brother to heavyweight champion Tyson.
    That result set Fury, 22, up with a grudge match against Paul, 24, on December 18 in Florida.
    And Taylor, not in camp with his celebrity fighting friend this time, predicted Fury will tire and lose in the later stages.
    He told SunSport: “I think Jake TKO in the seventh round.
    “His ring IQ is better, boxing IQ is better, his cardio is a lot better. Strategically, footwork-wise, Jake is better.
    “When you really look at Jake, when he fought Tyron you can tell his footwork is better than Tommy’s.

    “His ring IQ, the way he utilises the ring around him, the space, the ropes, but when you look at Tommy’s previous fights, he’s never fought anybody bar me.
    “And he had a hard time against me. I’m 5’6, he was supposed to knock me out and he had a really hard time and he gassed out quick.
    “When you’re going against a guy that’s taller than you, with boxing skills like Jake, Tommy’s going to have a really hard time.”
    Paul’s first three wins were knockouts over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
    But he scored his biggest career win last time out over eight rounds against ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39.
    Taylor’s MMA experience was used in sparring for the wins over Askren and Woodley while even affording him a spot on the undercard in the latter.
    But Fury spoiled any chance of a cinderella upset for the former Bellator fighter.

    Taylor has since likened Fury’s fight with Paul to Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk in September.
    And he insisted his ex-rival does not posses the power capable of closing the show like has been previously promised.
    Taylor, 32, said: “Tommy has no knockout power, he has pop and nothing else.
    “People said I was comparing Jake to Usyk, no, I said this, the fight will be exactly like Anthony Joshua versus Usyk.
    “Tommy Fury is going to be Anthony Joshua, throwing one-twos, very stationary, he comes forward.
    “Jake will be like Usyk, moving around a lot, he’s going to use that whole ring, he’s going to pick his shots.

    “He’s not going to stand and trade with Tommy, he’s going to move, bouncing. You seen against Tyron Woodley, he used the whole ring.
    “He moved around a lot. And it’s going to be the same thing, just like that.”
    Taylor’s friendship with Paul has landed him on the mega pay-per-view bill once again.
    He fights Chris Avila, a training partner of Nate Diaz’s, who he beat only last year in the cage.
    Taylor said: “Kudos to Chris Avila for stepping foot into that boxing ring, he’s a warrior for that.
    “I give everybody their props when they step foot in that cage or ring. But no disrespect to him as a fighter, but I’m going to properly kick his butt.”

    ‘I will beat him’ – Jake Paul says fight with UFC star Conor McGregor could ‘one hundred percent’ happen in two years

    JAKE PAUL believes he will ‘one hundred percent’ fight Conor McGregor within two years time. The YouTube sensation has long called to face McGregor and even had a $50million offer on the table in 2020.

    Despite that, McGregor has appeared uninterested in the lucrative boxing bout and has barley even acknowledged Paul, who is 4-0 as a boxer.
    But the social media influencer is adamant they will one day share the ring, as he continues to gain more experience and respect in the sport.
    Paul told Bleacher Report: “I will fight everybody. This started with me calling out McGregor.
    “And people were like ‘this kids crazy, Conor will kill him’. But now this fight could happen within the next 24 months one hundred percent.
    “I will beat him, people are seeing how serious I am being about this and are changing the way they think about it.”
    Paul’s first two wins were against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ and then ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37.

    But then he set his sights on rivalling the UFC, as he knocked out retired welterweight Ben Askren, 37, in April.
    And he returned in August to beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, over eight rounds.
    Attempts to prize McGregor, 33, beaten by Floyd Mayweather, 44, on his boxing debut in 2017, have proven unsuccessful.
    Instead, Paul fights Tommy Fury, 22, the brother to heavyweight champion Tyson, on December 18 in Florida.
    And he claimed the Gypsy King is just one of several boxing icons to have supported his polarising splash in the sport.
    Paul said: “I’m the best thing that’s happened to boxing in a century – period.
    “The legends would agree – the Anthony Joshuas, the Mike Tysons, the Manny Pacquiaos, the Tyson Furys.
    “They’ve all said what I’m doing for boxing is a breath of fresh air. “I think that debate started about a year ago – is Jake Paul good for boxing?
    “I have silenced that, and I don’t think there’s anybody on the other side of the equation who thinks I’m bad for boxing.”

    Jake Paul’s sparring partner calls for YouTuber and brother Logan to battle UFC’s Nick and Nate Diaz in two-fight series

    JAKE and Logan Paul have been urged to secure a two-fight, battle of the brothers deal with Nick and Nate Diaz. The YouTubers have emerged as two of the most disputed and polarising figures in boxing.

    Nate Diaz and brother Nick, are both UFC fighters and have been urged to fight the Pauls
    Jake, who fights Tommy Fury on December 18, has called out UFC star Nate Diaz in the past.
    And on his next undercard, former sparring partner Anthony Taylor, rematches Diaz’s team-mate Chris Avila.
    And while Taylor does not have his eye on either of the Diaz brothers, he called on Jake and Logan to pit themselves against the UFC veterans.
    He told SunSport: “I’m not worried about Nate or Nick.
    “I’ll let Jake and Logan handle that if it needs to be. The Paul brothers versus the Diaz brothers.
    “But what I can say I’m interested in would be fighting Jake Shields or Gilbert Melendez, Team Paul versus Team Diaz.”

    Logan, 26, has only boxed three times before, twice against online rival KSI, with the first a white collar bout in 2018 which resulted a draw.
    The American then lost the rematch a year later by scrappy split-decision when they turned professional.
    Then, in June, Logan return in an extraordinary exhibition with Floyd Mayweather ring legend which ended with no winner after it went the distance.
    The social media sensation is now rumoured to be in talks with Mike Tyson, 55, who made his comeback last November against Roy Jones Jr.
    Meanwhile, Jake, 24, is 4-0 with wins over YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, as well as former UFC pair Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
    Taylor was his sparring partner before fights with ex-MMA champions Askren and Woodley.

    He even featured on the undercard of the latter, losing to Jake’s next opponent Fury, 22.
    And he will again feature on the pay-per-view bill when his old sparring partner and opponent fight, facing old ground in Avila, who he beat in the cage last year.
    Taylor said: “Jake’s manager Nakisa hit me up and said, ‘Hey, what do you know about Chris Avila?’
    “And I’m like, ‘Well, me and Chris Avila don’t like each other’. I beat him up in Bellator and Nate didn’t like the fact I beat him up and was showboating.
    “So Nakisa was like, ‘Look, I want you to fight Chris Avila, I think it will be a good win for you and a good fight’.”

    UFC commentator Joe Rogan ‘can’t believe’ Logan Paul wants to fight Mike Tyson as he break down exhibition bout

    JOE ROGAN ‘can’t believe’ Logan Paul wants to fight Mike Tyson – as the UFC commentator broke down the extraordinary fight. The YouTube sensation and boxing icon were rumoured to be in talks for an exhibition bout in February.

    It comes after Paul, 26, took Floyd Mayweather, 44, the distance in their exhibition bout over eight rounds in June, where no winner was declared.
    And Tyson, 55, came out of retirement for a similar spectacle against Roy Jones Jr, 52, last November, which ended a draw.
    Rogan said on his podcast: “The fact that Logan Paul wants to box him, it’s like wow.
    “I can’t believe they’re really going to do that. That kid’s going to get hit for sure.
    “Floyd was hitting him. Floyd has only taken a small amount of time off and he had those exhibition fights.
    “Floyd has been pretty active as a boxer, he fought Pacquaio recently and that Japanese kickboxing guy.

    “He was just fighting guys like Conor McGregor that we knew Floyd was going to beat them, but he was still active.
    “Mike hadn’t been active forever. He got fat, but he’s a different kind of person. It’s going to be interesting to see what Logan can do to keep away from him.
    “The only thing Logan has on his side is youth.”
    Paul has boxed only three times before, firstly in a white collar bout against British online rival KSI, 28, which ended in a draw in 2018.
    But a year later, they turned professional and the American lost the rematch by scrappy split-decision.
    Only this year did Paul return, for the shock exhibition against Mayweather, who gave away TWO STONE.
    Meanwhile Tyson confirmed he will fight again with his second comeback bout set for February.
    Paul recently admitted tentative talks with Iron Mike had taken place in the past, but it was not a fight he was heavily considering.

    Although after seeing the reaction of fans, who tipped Tyson to demolish the man 29 YEARS his junior, the social media influencer is ready to prove doubters wrong.
    Paul told SecondsOut: “As of now there’s nothing – I mean, look we’ve been kind of talking about it, it’s been kind of possible for a little bit.
    “It’s been pinned. Then there’s rumours started circling, whatever we didn’t say anything and then it got confirmed that it wasn’t happening.
    “I was like reading the tweets and the social commentary and everyone was saying, ‘Tyson would f***ing kill Logan’.
    “So a fight that I initially hadn’t even considered, is now like people actually don’t think that I would win, this is actually offensive.
    “And I started getting upset and now I’m kind of considering it just to shut people the f*** up.
    “I find it absurd that people don’t think I can beat Mike Tyson.”
