TYSON FURY has hailed Logan and Jake Paul and said their doubters are ‘just jealous because they ain’t making the money’.

The YouTubing brothers have both forged polarising prizefighting careers over the past few years.

But it has attracted as many naysayers as it has done supporters, with opinions divided on the social media sensations.

One such admirer is undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Fury, who has backed Logan and Jake in their careers.

And he doubled down on his support for the pair and praised the attention they are bringing to boxing with their audience and fanbase.

Fury, 33, told iFL TV: “A lot of people say all this YouTube stuff is crap and they don’t want to see all these people in boxing.

“But I’m the heavyweight champion and the best fighter that has ever lived and I like to see these YouTubers fight.

“I like to see it because it brings millions more eyes to my sport where I’m the master at.

“And just like general people, who would never watch boxing, watch it because of the YouTube guys, Love Island and TikTokers.

“The more eyes to boxing the better and it makes it better for the young fighters coming through.

“If there’s millions of people watching TikTokers and stuff then they might tune in again and watch some real boxing later on in life.

“It’s all good it’s all PR work for our sport. Anyone who doesn’t like it is just jealous because they ain’t making the money they are getting.

“That’s what it’s about – Jealousy. There’s a lot of jealousy in this world, especially people hating on others trying to follow their dreams and don’t have the guts to follow their own.”

Logan, 26, made his professional debut in 2019, after drawing in an exhibition bout with online rival KSI, 28, a year earlier.

He lost the rematch by scrappy split-decision and returned to the ring in June against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, 44.

Amazingly, Logan – who weighed TWO STONE more – scored a moral victory as he survived all eight rounds, technically avoiding defeat.

Jake, 24, on the other hand is now 4-0 in his career, recently beating ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, on points in his biggest win to date.

It followed after knockout wins over YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, both 37.

And despite Fury’s love for Jake and Logan, his brother Tommy, 22, is in talks to fight the younger Paul.

Tommy, who featured on the 2019 edition of reality TV show Love Island, recently beat Jake’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on the Woodely undercard.

And now the celebrity pair are in negotiations to potentially fight by the end of the year.
