Frank Warren has given the green light for the fight and even opposing promoter Hearn is all for it.

He told iFL TV: “I like Tommy Fury against Jake Paul. Personally, I don’t mind. 

“Jake Paul is putting the work in. And I’ve seen many pro fighters that are worse than Jake Paul.”

Hearn promoted Paul’s debut in January 2020, which he won against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ in round one.

The internet sensation, 24, followed in up with a savage knockout against ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 36, on Mike Tyson’s undercard in November.

His third bout comes on April 17, against retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 36.

Tommy, 21, meanwhile improved his record to 5-0 with a recent KO against 0-9 journeyman Scott Williams.

Afterwards WBC heavyweight champion Tyson kickstarted the war of words with Paul.

The millionaire vlogger said Tommy looked like Tyson’s ‘s***’ and mocked him with a British accent.

But Tommy hit back by using partner Molly-Mae’s blonde hair extension to imitate the internet sensation.

His dad and trainer John was equally impressed with the pair and revealed his son would fight Paul NEXT.

He said: “I’m enjoying a bit of a joke with Jake Paul. We hope to get him sometime in the future.

“We’d probably take him next if we can get him. But they’re just pipe dreams at the minute.

“I thought Tommy’s thing with the wig on was great.

“Jake Paul, equally as good, we’ve enjoyed a backwards and forwards with these two, it’s going to be a great.”
