TOMMY FURY claimed he “doesn’t need” Jake Paul having secured a spot on the “biggest show in UK history”.

The celebrity boxing rivals were due to settle their score in a grudge match in December.

But Fury withdrew after suffering a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.

The 2019 Love Island star is set to make his return on April 23 on the undercard of brother Tyson’s fight with Dillian Whyte.

The capacity is on course to break the British record with 94,000 and Fury, 22, said it marks a step up from anything Paul, 25, is doing.

He told Queensberry Promotions: “I’ve already said that so there’s no point in me wasting my breath any more on Jake Paul.

“He knows where it’s at, but I’ve got my career to get on with, my career is blossoming.

“I’m fighting at Wembley Stadium in front of 100,000, I’m not looking for a MMA star to fight in some hall and get 60,000 views.

“I don’t need to do that – I’m about to fight on probably the biggest show in UK history at Wembley, 100,000, I know I’ve said it a lot but it’s an awfully big show.

“And everybody around the world will be tuning in, even Jake Paul will be tuning in himself.

“I can tell you that now, he’ll be sat somewhere watching it on a screen and he’ll think, ‘Listen, this is the only big fight out there for me’, 100 per cent.”

Paul is yet to return since he knocked out Tyron Woodley, 39, in their late-notice rematch after Fury pulled out.

It added to KOs over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

The American, who is yet to fight a recognised boxer, announced he will return in August.

And Fury said the public demand to reschedule a fight between them is clear.

He added: “I’m not sure who he’s going to fight but if he wants the viewing figures back, a big fight that people are interested in, he knows where it’s at.

“All you’ve got to do to see that is look at any of his posts, I get tagged in so many a day going ‘who should Jake Paul fight?’

“Tommy Fury is the only one and it’s in England. Let me get through this fight and crack on with my career, then if Jake Paul wants it he can have it any time.”
