Tommy Fury has been issued a strong warning ahead of his highly-anticipated fight with Jake Paul on December 18.
YouTube star Paul, 24, will face the 22-year-old younger brother of heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury in Florida, where he will look to extend his unbeaten record to 5-0.
The younger Fury is also unbeaten with his own record of 7-0, though he faces the most high-profile fight of his career against the controversial American.
And the former Love Island winner may have some cause for concern with bare knuckle boxing fighter Jake Bostwick claiming that Paul once detached his lip during a sparring session.
Talking to Cene Magazine, Bostwick said: “He was sparring with some guys in Miami not far from me and I was hearing that he was lighting some people up and giving out some really good work.
“He needed some more sparring partners and they were feeling out some guys – this was for the Ben Askren fight – so I got a couple of messages saying there was a good opportunity to come down for some sparring with Jake Paul.
“So I was down for it, but the guy said ‘Listen, the guy can box, please don’t think he can’t’. And this was coming from a professional coach, a guy I know.
“I was driving down there and I was nervous, it’s like an hour drive, and I was thinking ‘Oh, there’s gonna be all these cameras and all his boys, I really need to show up.

“We did three solid rounds and he caught me with some shots!
“He hit me with an uppercut and detached my top lip! He caught me with some s***! I was like ‘What the f***?'"
Paul has already defeated former UFC stars Askren and Tyron Woodley to set up the clash with Manchester-born Fury.
Despite many criticising both he and older brother Logan’s recent flurry of celebrity exhibition fights, Jake is adamant that he is serious about becoming the best light-heavyweight in the world.
He said: "I would describe his [Logan’s} boxing career as something he does for entertainment, for fun and because he loves it.
“Mine is a lot more serious. I want to become a world champion, 10-0 and retire undefeated.”
