Tommy Fury would also enter the fight with an unbeaten professional record, after winning his eight contests to date.

Fury, the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, last had a professional fight in April when he overcame Daniel Bocianski in six rounds.

His exhibition bout Lambert was organised at short-notice after his fight with Paul Bambe was axed last minute due to a dispute over the weight.

John Fury, Tyson and Tommy’s dad, climbed inside the ring, ripped off his shirt and implored Paul to join him in the squared circle, shouting: ‘Forget my son, I’m the king of the bare-knuckle man.’

Paul, meanwhile, responded with: ‘You’re a miserable old man. Come fight me right now then.’

Tommy Fury joined the altercation, stating: ‘There’s a certain b***h from ringside that I want in the ring now.

‘Tell him to get in here because he would never have the b***h to get in here and fight a man of this calibre on a few hours notice.’ 

Former UFC star Mike Perry had previously claimed Paul had backed out of fighting him, while the 25-year-old former YouTuber had invited Paddy Pimblett to spar with him for a prize of ‘£1million’ back in November.

Paul is expected to divide his time between boxing and MMA this year, after signing a multi-year deal to fight with the Professional Fighters League.
