And now the former Bellator lightweight – who is drawing 1-1 as a boxer – wants to take on the 2019 Love Island star.

Avila, 28, told TMZ Sports: “Tommy Fury was beaten by the guy I beat tonight, it’s funny.

“He obviously won, but he was defeated in that fight. It was light work, it was just another fight.

“Tommy Fury, fear not, he’s a bitch, so is AJ McKee.”

Fury, 22, aims to fight Paul, 24, in Florida but was pulled out with a broken rib and bacterial chest infections.

Tyron Woodley, 39, then signed a late replacement but eliminated in the rematch, just three months after losing points.

He now joins YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, former NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, on Paul’s KO list.

Fury recently announced that he is in talk to reschedule his fight with Paul, who had yet to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

He said on Instagram: “I believe the fight is even bigger now. It’s unfinished business.

“My team contacted his team to try and arrange a launch date early next year.

“My recovery is underway. I’ll be ready to start in March, so get this fight back on track and let’s sort it out.”
