Tommy Fury has told Jake Paul to stop calling out UFC fighters and to instead reschedule their cancelled bout.
Fury was due to face the YouTube star last weekend but pulled out at two weeks' notice after suffering a cracked rib in sparring.
The former Love Island contestant had also been struggling with a serious chest infection.
Fury was replaced by former UFC world champion Tyron Woodley who was knocked out in the sixth round of his second fight with Paul.
And he has called on his rival to return to the negotiating table.
"I believe my time will come. We're trying to figure out a date because that's the fight we want," Fury told Queensberry Promotions.
"I dont get what he's trying to achieve by calling out the UFC people. He wants to be a boxer so fight a boxer.
"He's calling out these wrestlers and non-boxers. In the cage they kill him every day of the week.
"Would he beat Nate Diaz (in the ring)? One hundred per cent. Would he beat any other UFC superstars? One hundred per cent, because they're not boxers.
"He's the fight I want next and he's the fight that's going to happen next. We're just at the stage of working it out.
"The only thing I want to hear about is when this fight is rescheduled, that's all I want to hear. We've got unfinished business.
"Everyone is saying he has to fight a proper boxer… fight Tommy Fury. Next year I'm ready to go and to put this to bed."
Will Tommy Fury beat Jake Paul? Let us know in the comments section below
Paul has so far refused to confirm whether he will reschedule his fight with Fury.
He has identified former boxing world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr as a potential opponent and has also called out UFC stars Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Kamaru Usman and Conor McGregor.
But UFC president Dana White will almost certainly refuse to release his fighters from their contract to fight Paul.
That leaves Fury as the social media sensation's likely next opponent with talks expected to re-start imminently.
Promoter Frank Warren tweeted yesterday: "We spoke to your manager last weekend. Tommy wants it. We want it. Do you want it? Let’s make the fight!!"
