Jake Paul and Tommy Fury exchanged insults at a press conference ahead of their boxing encounter next month – but it was the latter's father John who stole the show.

Fury, the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, is set to battle it out with Paul over eight rounds at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on December 18.

The pair certainly do not see eye to eye, with their war of words on social media over the past six months sparking demand for a bout between them.

On Wednesday they were able to reignite the verbal warfare at a press conference ahead of the fight, albeit with Paul attending via video link from the States.

Fury was at the event alongside brother Tyson and dad John, who became embroiled in a fiery dispute with his son's opponent.

When Paul warned the Furys that they have "f****d up" by accepting to face him, John hit back and said: "What did you say? What did you say cat weasel?

"You look like something out of a comic, joke shop man.

"Take the glasses off so we can see the fear in your eyes. Take them off. There's no glasses on these eyes pal, there's no glasses on us."

Paul then responded: "Hey Tommy, shut your b*****s up for me. Shut your b*****s up for me."

John replied: "Shut up you dog."

Fury Sr then urged Paul to remove his glasses again, before leaping out of his seat and pretending to punch him through the TV screen.

The BT Sport presenter hosting the press conference joked: "Leave the screens out of this John!"

Both Fury and Paul are novices in the sport of boxing, with the former only enjoying seven contests (7-0) so far in his professional career.
