VIDDAL RILEY has called out Tommy Fury as he tries to force a fight with the former Love Island star.
Riley, who previously coached YouTuber KSI, has made it clear he wants to fight Fury because of the pair’s tight WBC rankings.
Fury came in 38th after his pay-per-view fight with the controversial Jake Paul, which he won on points after eight rounds.
Riley, ranked 40th, took to YouTube to call out Whist, 23, who highlighted his ambitions to become world champion in the process.
He said: “I’m number 40, Tommy is actually number 38, I’ve seen him say in several interviews ‘My goal is to be world champion’.
“He preaches that he wants to be world champion. I currently have no World Cup quality. I have the potential – and I will achieve it – but it looks like I’m not.
“So if like me you have ambitions to be world champion, we’re close in the rankings, it would be a massive fight, people would emerge. People would turn out for you.
“People would turn out for me. If that is your claim, why are you looking elsewhere?”
Riley is unbeaten himself and has won five of his eight fights by KO.
The cruiserweight fighter continued in his video, hinting that Fury doesn’t want the fight.

He said: “I mentioned [Fury’s] Names multiple times and I’ve never heard an answer that can only have one reason,
“I’ve always said I’ll be world champion, I’ll reach the top, and you don’t go from zero or unrecognized to number one.
“There is a process. The fact that I’m now number 40 in the world with a professional boxing federation means I’m on my way.
Fury, the younger brother of WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury, could still have to fight Jake Paul again with a rematch still a possibility.
The Manchester-born TV personality has yet to respond to Riley’s call.
