ANTHONY YARDE has edged Jake Paul to BEAT Tommy Fury… and does not fear the wrath of big John for saying it.

The celebrity boxing rivals were signed to a grudge match last December only for Fury to pull out after suffering a broken rib.

But after Paul announced his sixth professional bout for August 13, rumoured talks between the pair resurfaced.

Light-heavyweight title contender Yarde was probed by Queensberry on who he would pick to secure bragging rights in the fight.

And after initially hesitating to answer, the Londoner was asked if he was “scared of big John Fury”.

But Yarde, 30, replied: “No, I don’t think I’m scared of anyone.”

John furiously confronted former two-division champion Carl Frampton, 35, who chose Paul to beat his son.

And the ex-bareknuckle fighter could have another enemy as Yarde went on to reveal his prediction.

He said: “You know what’s funny? This sounds made yeah, I think I would choose Jake Paul.

“Again, like Tommy Fury’s not my boy, I hope he does well in boxing.

“He’s in my weight class as well so to me that’s a future opp – me and him can get it cracking as well any time he wants to sign the contract.

“But someone like Jake Paul, I feel like he’s getting better – Tommy Fury’s getting better as well but from what I see, there’s something about Jake Paul where he’s getting better at a good, rapid rate.

“I’m talking about performances. I saw a bit of Tommy Fury’s last performance, he dropped the guy but I dunno, I feel like there’s a lot of pressure on his shoulders.

“He still looks very tense, he’s big for the weight but in terms of skills, I think Jake Paul looks a bit cleaner.”

Paul, 25, has scored four knockouts in his five fights but is yet to face a recognised boxer after Fury, 23, got injured.

Those KOs came against online rival “AnEsonGib”, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, and Tyron Woodley.

Woodley, 40, was initially beaten on points in August but replaced Fury on late notice, where he was brutally knocked out.

And Yarde – a KO artist himself – slammed baseless claims that Paul fixed the fight.
