‘I would just love to beat his ass’ – Jake Paul wants to fight Tommy Fury’s brother Tyson and slams heavyweight champ

, ‘I would just love to beat his ass’ – Jake Paul wants to fight Tommy Fury’s brother Tyson and slams heavyweight champ

JAKE PAUL wants to fight Tommy Fury’s brother Tyson – but joked he would need to eat his way up to heavyweight first.

It comes after the YouTuber-turned boxer was forced for the second time to find a replacement opponent after Tommy again pulled out.

Tyson Fury bet $1m that his brother Tommy would beat Jake Paul

His older brother Tyson was vocal ahead of the proposed celebrity grudge match and even verbally agreed to a $1million bet with Paul.

But the WBC heavyweight world champion went radio silent as Tommy saw the pay-per-view bout collapse once more.

Paul told FightHype: “Even like when he made the $1million bet with me, we reached out to his lawyer to put the money in escrow.

“And then we never heard anything back from him. They’re all talk and I wish Tyson and I were in the same weight class as I would just love to beat his ass.”

But Paul – whose last fight was at 13st 5lb – would need to snack on several sweet treats to match Tyson’s 19 STONE frame.

He said: “Man, I would need to eat a lot of Twinkies to get as fat as him.”

Tommy, 23, was last December due to fight Paul, 25, but withdrew after suffering a broken rib in training.

And when the online rivals rescheduled for August 6, he was unable to travel to the press conference amid a US visa issue.

Fury failed to to resolve his travel dilemma, forcing Paul to source a substitute opponent in the form of Hasim Rahman Jr.

Paul has beaten YouTuber “AnEsonGib”, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 38, and former MMA champions Ben Askren, 37, and Tyron Woodley, 40.

But Rahman Jr, the son of ex-heavyweight champ Sr, will be the American’s first opponent with a recognised boxing record.

The heavyweight prospect, 31, is 12-1 and has actually twice sparred Paul, who revealed: “Those sessions were very, very heated.

“The last one ended with him calling me a “YouTuber” saying I’ll never go anywhere in the sport of boxing.

“Criticising me, saying he’s going to beat up my whole entire team. So there’s bad blood here.”
