Jake Paul has sent a warning to Tommy Fury ahead of the pair's eagerly anticipated fight in Florida next month.
The clash, set to take place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, will pit the American against what is, effectively, the first truly professional boxer that he has faced in the ring.
Paul has previously beaten the likes of Anesongib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley as a professional fighter, with the latter being the only opponent he wasn't able to knock out inside the distance.
Fury, who is the younger brother of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson, will offer Paul his biggest test this far, having boxed for most of his young life.

Aged 22, the Brit has a boxing record of 7-0, with his last bout coming on the undercard of Paul v Woodley back in August.
While Fury is yet to face anybody of note, the common consensus amongst experts is that his skill set will be too much for Paul, who was previously a YouTuber vlogger.
"I will TKO him in the later rounds. He hasn't had a fight past four rounds so I think he'll be gassed," Paul recently claimed.
"I think this will be the first time he's getting punched in the face by someone who can actually hit and is the same weight as him.
"He's always fought smaller guys with losing records. So I think he's going to fade. I know he's going to fade."
Fury's record has been the topic of much discussion in recent weeks, as only one of his previous seven opponents had a winning record as a pro.
Paul claims that he will force the issue on December 18th, insisting that it's just a matter of when he gets the knockout rather than if.
"It's just what round? Fifth? Sixth? Seventh? Maybe I knock him out in the last ten seconds of the eighth," the social media superstar added.
"But he's not hearing that eighth bell ring. I've got $500,000 on the line, and when he loses, he has to change his name to Tommy Fumbles."
Paul was visibly rocked in his previous bout with Woodley, a former UFC Welterweight champion. However, the 24-year-old asserts that the experience will stand him in good stead for future match-ups.
"Nobody from Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson to Floyd Mayweather was testing themselves as much as I was in my fourth fight," said Paul.
"I learned a lot about myself and what I'm capable of and performing under pressure."
