Jake Paul’s coach has opened the door to a bitter fight with Tommy Fury next as the American considers his options.
Paul defeated ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley in August with Fury on the undercard against the American’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor.
Fury, who shot to fame on the 2019 edition of Love Island, beat Taylor via unanimous decision after four rounds of action to set up a potential bout with Paul.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer’s coach, BJ Flores, has now admitted that while he didn’t expect much from Fury's victory over Taylor, a fight between the two is certainly on the cards.
“I didn’t expect much out of Tommy to be honest,” Flores told The Mirror.
“Anthony can make people look bad, and look he didn't do enough to win rounds but he made it competitive and I didn't really expect much from Tommy anyway.
“Everybody's on Tommy's nuts but I didn't expect too much from him, he didn't have the amateur career and it's tough to go out there and perform.
“It's not easy and people don't realise how tough it is. He could still be a potential opponent, he's somebody we could definitely fight, we'll see.

“I'll let Nakisa [Bidarian, Paul's manager] work on that, I let him handle that side of things. We talk about it, but he comes up with better ideas than I do.”
With both fighters winning, Fury moved to 7-0 while Paul’s record is 4-0 in his young professional career.
The win over Woodley follows victories against online content creator 'AnEsonGib', former NBA star Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren.

With talks reportedly underway between either camp, it appears Fury and Paul are destined to meet in the ring – and Flores revealed the 24-year-old could return to training next week.
“He’s already ready to come back. This guy is a serious kid, trust me, he’s very, very serious,” the former cruiserweight added.
“He won't take that much time off. The guy is obsessed, he loves boxing."
