Fury has also been tipped as a future opponent of Paul, with the pair trading verbals on social media in recent years.
While UFC boss Dana White has dismissed Paul as a viable partner for fights in the future, labelling him “f***ing annoying”.
“I just don’t see it happening,” White told the Full Send Podcast. “I don’t hate the kid. Is he f***ing annoying? Yeah, he’s annoying. He’s out there trying to make that money, and his shelf life is very f***ing short.
“Listen, I never say never, but I highly doubt it (working with Paul). It’s just not what I do. There’s a market for that. He could fight a different type of celebrity every week, and there’s going to be a segment of the population that wants to pay for that and see it, but that’s not what I do. I put the best against the best.”

Jake Paul returns to the ring this weekend when he faces off against former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
The controversial YouTuber, aka ‘The Problem Child’, destroyed ex-UFC star Ben Askren in April as he continued his much-criticised foray into professional boxing.
Paul has won his three pro fights to date with ease but has faced opponents far adrift of his skillset.
Woodley, a talented former UFC champion, has seen his MMA career stall in recent years but is expected to pose an entirely different test for the social media superstar.
The pair have been involved in another heated back-and-forth build-up to the clash and that will only increase as fight week approaches.
