And Taylor, a 7-5 MMA fighter with only one prior boxing bout which he lost, did not provide any real test.

Fury won all four rounds convincingly but was unable to get the knockout thanks to the holding and unorthodox style of his American opponent.

Still the British light-heavyweight moved to 7-0 and used the uneventful display to entice and convince Paul into a grudge match.

Fury said: “Looking at that, Jake Paul, you should have an easy night mate, shouldn’t you?

“There’s no excuses now. You’ve seen everybody, I’ve had the biggest cheer in the place.

There’s no excuses, no running, no hiding. I want you next, you bum. Let’s get it on.”

Fury, 22, already signed a two-fight deal with US powerhouse Showtime before he made his Stateside debut.

The network also have Paul recently tied down to a lucrative deal and talk of a fight between them in their next fights had already taken place.

But Paul, 24, first needed to beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, in his fourth and toughest pro bout to date, which headlined the evening.

Paul, without his father John or older brother Tyson, admitted to underperforming but promised to carry on improving.

He said: “It wasn’t my best performance and everyone will know that.

“But at the end of the day, boxing is the toughest game in the world. If it was easy, everybody in the world would be doing it.

“I’m learning day by day, each session that I have in the gym. I’m getting better. It’s the hardest game in the world and I’m trying my hardest.

“That’s all that I can say.”
