YOUTUBER Jake Paul has vowed to ‘expose’ Love Island star Tommy Fury as the celebrities line-up a huge pay-per-view bout.

The two fighters are expected to exchange words on August 29 when Fury fights American Anthony Taylor on Paul’s undercard.

Paul’s bout with UFC icon Tyron Woodley is the headline event in Cleveland and the YouTuber’s fourth professional boxing match.

Paul and Fury are predicted to win their respective fights and set up a huge celebrity clash in the near future.

Discussing a potential bout with Fury, Paul told Sky Sports: “He comes from a legendary family name and background and the social media.

“I don’t really know how he got famous. I think he did reality shows.

“It could potentially lead to a path where you see Jake Paul versus Tommy Fury.”

PAUL V FURY

The two fighters have been exchanging words since Paul shared a ‘screenshot’ of an alleged message from Fury’s girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.

The alleged Instagram message from October 2018 reads: “Might be coming to America later this year and have always been a fan of your videos.

“Maybe you can show me around?”

Molly-Mae denied the message, tweeting: “Times must be hard when you’re having to fake a DM… Photoshop is scary.”

Fury and Molly-Mae started their relationship after meeting on the 2019 series of hit reality TV show Love Island.

TOMMY FURY-OUS

The British boxer, brother of heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, was not impressed with Paul dragging his girlfriend into their war of words.

He told Sky Sports: “I’m thick-skinned. I’m a professional athlete.

“These boys ain’t. These boys play games on the internet and run around for a living.

“I fight hard for a living. I will let my fists do the talking. For every bad thing he has said, he will get a swift right hand for it.

“I will break every bone in his face. You don’t bring people’s loved ones into it. It’s a fight. It’s nothing to do with them, leave them out of it.”

But Paul isn’t concerned, adding: “It sounds like someone handed him a script for him to read off, ‘I’m going to break every bone in his face!’

“He’s got nothing real to say – ‘You crossed the line, buddy!’ This isn’t sixth grade. This is the fight business, this is the boxing business.

“He boxes because he was told to do so by his dad. He doesn’t have that real heart, that real fighter inside of him.

“He is doing this because it’s something his brother did. It’s something his dad did and he sees it as a way to make some money.

“If we ever get into the ring, I’m going to expose him… I’m the real deal and people will see that.”
