If you thought Tyson Fury's younger brother Tommy was going to verbally unleash on Jake Paul after the YouTuber posted an alleged DM he received from Tommy's girlfriend Molly-Mae, then you'd be wrong.
It turns out Tommy would rather wait until he comes face-to-face with the Jake in the to properly deal with him.
That being said, former Love Island contestant Tommy has finally responded to the whole ordeal, simply calling Jake "fake" and adding that he's "got no balls."
Interestingly, though, it was Tommy's criticism of Jake's social media skills which is perhaps most damaging for a self-proclaimed social media guru and influencer.
"We all know that [the DM] wasn't true. That's the kind of person Jake Paul is, he tries to come out with all these things," Tommy told talkSPORT.
"He's got his team in the back working on fake DMs, saying 'let's do this and let's do that'.
"If he'd checked his stuff and was that good then he'd have understood the white heart [emoji in Molly-Mae's Instagram name] wasn't approved until 2019 and the DM was supposed to be sent in 2018.
"So he can't be good at his job very much. That's the type of person he is but it doesn't matter to me.
"Fake news is fake news. He's a fake person who fights fake fighters. So he's just fake all round and he's not going to get under my skin."
:x: "I never called out @JakePaul. I don't know much about him."
:eyes: "His name means nothing to me. Why do I care about a YouTuber?"

The online back and forths between the pair took a new direction in the past few days when Jake took aim at undefeated 5-0 Tommy for accepting boxing bout against 0-14 Andy Bishop.
Jake went to town on Tommy online, calling the move "embarrassing for the Fury family".
The Brit's team have since come out and denied that a fight with Bishop was on the cards, although an opponent still hasn't been agreed upon for Tommy's June 5th bout - despite offers being tabled in Jake's direction.
"It's been an online beef at the minute and that's all it is because he can't do anything otherwise. I've put it on a plate many times," Tommy added.
"I'm a fair man and would fight under most circumstances, at the moment all he wants to do is create memes and cause s*** online.
"I haven't got the time for that. I know he has as he's an online person. I'm just doing this game for one reason and one reason only, and that's to fight.
"The thing is with Jake Paul and the Jake Paul fight is that I've got my own plan in my head with boxing and beating a social media star doesn't come into it or really satisfy me."
It seems like only a matter of time before these two finally meet inside the ring, let's just hope Jake keeps it civil enough during the build-up.
