Former Love Island contestant Tommy Fury kept his unblemished professional boxing record in tact over the weekend with a win over Scott Williams.
And his half-brother, heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, knows exactly who his younger sibling's next opponent should be.
Tyson has urged Tommy to fight outspoken YouTuber Jake Paul.
In the wake of Tommy's recent victory, 32-year-old Tyson took to social media to praise his younger brother for his efforts while also taking the time to call out Paul.
He tweeted: "Massive congratulations to @tommytntfury for smashing records on @btsport. Tommy slaughtered the competition over the weekend! Including America's biggest boxing star Canelo Alvarez. Wow, just wow. @espn @dazngroup @SkySports @jakepaul where you at?

Tyson accompanied the post with television viewing figures from every major boxing event over the weekend, showing that Tommy's fight peaked at 1,900,000 compared to Canelo's which peaked at 105,000.
It just goes to show how popular the 24-year-old really is.
As for Paul, he's still yet to respond to the call-out.
But if his social media antics in the past are anything to go by, then it shouldn't be too long until he bites back at the Fury brothers.
The YouTube star has never shied away from calling out some of the biggest and baddest boxers and mixed martial artists on the planet.
He's previously engaged in a heated war-of-words with the likes of Conor McGregor, Dana White and even Nate Diaz - a move that was ultimately frowned upon by the combat sport community.
But his running battle online with wrestling great Ben Askren has resulted in both men signing on the dotted line to take part in exhibition boxing bout on April 17.
And despite boasting a 19-2-0 record in mixed martial arts, 36-year-old Askren has already emerged as the bookies' underdog for the fight against the undefeated trash-talker.
