And his younger brother Tommy, 23, still remains linked with a celebrity grudge match against American Paul, 25.
But despite his admiration, Fury has no interest in the influencer fight scene.
He told True Geordie: “I’m busy in training for a real fight so I don’t watch all that YouTube stuff.
“Not that I’ve got anything against it, I think it’s great for the sport and the people who do it.
“[It’s] great for everybody but it’s not my cup of tea. If I want to see a real fight, I go down to a Morecambe boozer on a Friday night and I watch a fight.”
Fury, 34, returns on December 3 in a trilogy bout against Derek Chisora, 38, the man he beat in 2011 and 2014.
And podcast host True Geordie – real name Brian Davis – criticised the bout, due to the one-sided nature of the first two.
It led to Fury fuming: “No matter what you say, or what people like you want to say, about Derek Chisora, he’s achieved more in boxing and in fighting than 10 man like you could ever achieve.

“So I’m not just gonna let you sit here and slate somebody whose fought the best fighters of this era just because he’s lost a few fights.”
He then raged: “I think your a t****r you little t**spot and I won’t be doing anymore interviews with you.
“You little t**spot bearded-bald-headed t****r. Kiss my b***s… You little s**thouse.”
