Jake Paul has declared Tommy Fury will be “exposed as a terrible fighter” when they face off in the ring “very soon”.
The American made the claim as he provided an update on his proposed fight with Brit Fury, who is the half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson.
The pair have been sparring on the internet in recent weeks following Paul’s first-round knockout of former UFC welterweight Ben Askren.
The emphatic victory took the YouTuber’s record to three wins without loss, adding to his victories over AnEsonGib and Nate Robinson.
Fury, 21, is also unbeaten at 5-0, but Paul, 24, has no doubt he is the superior boxer and vowed to prove it in the near future.
“I think we will see it soon,” Paul told The Sun of a bout with former reality television star Fury.
“I want to make fights happen and make history and Tommy Fury is a spoon-fed, reality TV star who has lived in his brother’s shadow this whole entire time.
“I’m going to expose him as a terrible fighter, very soon, very soon.

“Man, this is fun. I’m just having fun and there’s so many people to fight, there’s a long list and it just keeps getting longer.”
While he talked up an encounter with Fury, Paul also confirmed he is also formally exploring a number of other bouts, including some with fighters currently signed to the UFC.
He added: “There’s a lot of guys.
“We’re in talks with a lot of different opponents and seeing who can get let out their UFC contracts. Seeing who has what obligations and figuring out a date.
“I’m not able to say names but when the deal gets done with one of these names, people are going to be blown away and shocked.
“It looks like we’re going to be busy over the next couple of years.”
