TOMMY FURY has labelled boxing rival Jake Paul a 'conman' for fighting ageing UFC legend Anderson Silva rather than him.
Brit Fury believes YouTuber Paul will beat 47-year-old Silva with farcical ease in Arizona on Saturday night.
And Tyson Fury's younger half-brother, 23, reckons the American can't be taken seriously until they meet.
Paul has won all his five pro fights, while Silva has won both his bouts since retiring from MMA two years ago.
Fury, 23, and 25-year-old Paul are still trying to set up a grudge match after two cancellations.
And the Mancunian suggested the social media celebrity is taking easy money in the meantime.

Asked if Paul will beat Silva, he replied: "Very comfortably. He's not a boxer, he's an MMA fighter who's been retired for years and is 50 years of age.
"Jake Paul's a con man. Until he signs to fight me, I'm not interested in what he does."
But Silva insists he's in good enough condition to see off Paul.
The Brazilian said: "I'm going to do my best to make a good show for everyone.
