“When I started making it on Vine, eventually, I became numb to it.

“Now I don’t care what people say unless it’s a well-crafted thought from someone who is successful and has walked at least somewhat in my shoes.”

Paul last fought in December in a short-notice rematch against Tyron Woodley, 40, after Tommy Fury, 23, pulled out.

He knocked out replacement Woodley, having previously beaten the ex-UFC champion on points in August.

And the American revealed his training camp has started well ahead of schedule.

Paul told SunSport: “I seem to not be able to stay out of the gym.

“I’m sort of always working out. Even when I was on the break, I was still jogging or whatever.

“I dunno, I just feel like my body just craves that workout and that feeling of being in the gym. 

“So, yeah I just always end up starting my camps way earlier than expected.”
