Jake Paul would rather fight Tyson or John Fury as he dismisses Tommy fight

Jake Paul says Tommy Fury doesn't deserve a rescheduled fight with him and he would rather face his brother Tyson and father John instead.

Paul was scheduled to fight Love Island star Fury last December, but the Brit pulled out of the contest with a bacterial infection and broken rib.

'The Problem Child' went on to rematch ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley on the card, knocking him out in brutal fashion.

Fury has since expressed his interest in rebooking a fight with Paul and said he will be ready to go in March or April to face his rival.

But Paul – who is taking a seven-month break away from the ring – said he has no intentions of rebooking a fight against the 22-year-old.

"He wants the payday but I've said it before that I don't wanna take the fight with him, he doesn't deserve it. I'd rather fight Tyson," he ' The Volume ' with Chris Mannix.

"I would want Tyson to come down to cruiserweight and that would be a bigger fight, or his dad. His dad John did a better job of promoting the fight than Tommy did.

"So I'll fight his brother or his dad before I fight Tommy."

Paul clashed with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson and father John in the build-up to his cancelled fight with Tommy.

Tyson – who originally praised Paul's involvement in boxing – changed his opinion on the 24-year-old by labelling him a s***house p****.

John took aim at Paul's girlfriend Julia Rose in a vulgar rant, stating Tommy would "f*** her like a dog" in front of him after the fight.

Paul has been linked to a fight against former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr upon his return to the ring.

The American outlined his hopes to win a world title in boxing, only to throw it on the ground and retire from the sport after.

But Paul has seemingly U-turned on his plans to retire after reaching 10-0 in the sport.

"It's so interesting because at the beginning of the year I was like 'I'll go 10-0 and then retire' but in a blink of an eye, all of sudden I'm 5-0," he continued.

"I feel like I just finished my rookie season, like I just finished chapter one of the book and there's still so much more left to read. I'm young, motivated and only getting better.

"It's weird to try and map it out but I definitely want to go undefeated and then retire. Whether that's 10 fights or 15 fights, we'll see I guess."
