TOMMY FURY claimed he saw 'plenty of fear' in Jake Paul after their backstage confrontation and said: 'He doesn't want any part of me'.
Fury, 22, in August beat Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on his American debut.
Later in the night, Paul, 24, beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, on points in his biggest win to date.
Afterwards, he went face-to-face with Fury before their opposing teams clashed with security forced to intervene.
Fury, brother to WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, recalled the incident with Paul and told BT Sport he sensed 'something in his eyes'.
He said: "He come down the corridor, he was acting the big I am. I was doing an interview with BT.
"And I turned around he was coming and that was it. I thought listen, if he's going to say anything, he's going to say it now.
"So, we squared up, had a little tit for tat, but I've seen something in his eyes, and I saw it there and then.

"When we squared up, I looked at him and he doesn't want any part of me, definitely not.
"I've seen plenty of fear in his eyes and he had about 40 security guards around him and everything and he still had fear in his eyes.
"Always looking away, looking down. I put it on him and said you need to stop running and take the fight."
Since the altercation, Fury has rejected two deals to fight Paul, believing they were not even 'worth addressing'.
Paul publicly offered the 2019 Love Island star $1million and SunSport understands additional bonuses are included depending on pay-per-view success.
Talks are still ongoing between the two camps but Fury has been warned the online offer is their third and final.
