Tommy Fury’s dad has called on YouTube star Jake Paul to fight his son on the undercard for the trilogy bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
The younger Fury took his professional boxing record to 6-0 with a points win over Jordan Grant on the undercard of Daniel Dubois’ comeback against Bogdan Dinu on Saturday.
Tommy, who is the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, has been embroiled in a war of words with the YouTube star-turned-boxer in recent months.

After the fight his dad, John, called out Jake Paul to fight his son on July 24 in Las Vegas
After his victory over Grant, his dad John Fury called on Paul to accept an offer from his son for the pair to square off.
‘Good on Jake Paul doing what he’s doing,’ he said. ‘Good luck to the kid, he’s game enough to get in the ring and any man who gets in there is a game man.
‘But it’s a big difference coming from no crowd to a big crowd. This was new for him tonight but Jake Paul, we’ll have you next.
‘If you think he’s no good, we’ll take you on Tyson’s undercard.’
Tommy Fury added: ‘I’m ready, whenever. Come and get it. Listen I’m a Fury, it’s in my f*****g blood. If you want it, come and get it.’
Paul holds a 3-0 professional record following his most recent victory over UFC fighter Ben Askren.
Tyson Fury’s trilogy bout with Wilder takes place on July 24, though it’s unlikely Paul will be available to fight on that date.

The YouTuber has already agreed to fight former UFC champion Tyron Woodley on August 28.
Tommy Fury’s victory over Grant was the toughest of his professional career to date as he battled to a points victory over the Scotsman.
He said after the match: ‘It was a good fight, all respect to him, he did Scotland proud and he’s a good game kid.
‘People need to take their time with me, I had ten amateur fights. This is not a sprint, it’s a marathon, I learned more in those four rounds than in my previous five fights.
‘I’m just trying to get better every time. I’m no Sugar Ray Leonard; I’m Tommy Fury and I’m trying to do the best I can.
‘I’m going to take my time and go through my apprenticeship properly.
‘Those are the first punches I’ve taken as a pro so I know I’ll benefit from that and next time I’ll be better again.’
Fury said that he is ready to fight the American social media star ‘whenever’
