TOMMY FURY has been warned to take Jake Paul "seriously" when he eventually shares the ring with the YouTuber.
The social media sensations were due to throw down last December until injury and illness forced Fury to withdraw from their grudge match.
Fury is confident of wiping the floor with his fellow boxing novice, but UFC heavyweight contender Tom Aspinall believes Paul has a "dangerous" style for the Love Islander to deal with.
During an appearance on The Fellas podcast, Aspinall said: “From what I’ve seen, which is minimal of Jake Paul, I think Tommy has got the skills to beat him.
"But I don’t think it’s a pushover fight.
“There are actually some skills there and he’s quite dangerous. His style is quite erratic and he’s got some power, so I don’t think it’s as smooth sailing as people might think it is [for Tommy].”

He said: "Jake Paul, this should have been done a long time ago.

"Just get the contracts signed, you bum, let's get it done once and for all."
Paul, however, appeared to quickly snub the bout, saying: “Congrats on beating a 10-1 fighter.
"But that stadium was empty. When I fight the stadium is full.
"When Tommy fights no one gives a f***. And that’s in his home country.
