Julia Rose has suggested she and Molly-Mae Hague could mud-wrestle ahead of the boxing showdown between their boyfriends Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.

Paul will take on Fury, the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, on December 18.

The bout, which will fetch both fighters millions of dollars, shapes as YouTube star Paul's most legitimate fight to date.

But it looks like Paul and Fury might not be the only ones fighting, with Rose also challenging Hague to step in the ring.

Speaking to TMZ, Rose said she upped her game after trying to have a bet with Hague on the Paul-Fury bout.

"I tried having a bet," she said.

"She didn't respond. Molly's not too confident in her man."

When asked if she'd ever step in the ring with Hague, Rose replied: "We could mud wrestle."

Rose and Paul have been dating on-off for a number of months, while Hague and Fury met on reality TV show 'Love Island' in 2019.

Fury is 7-0 in his professional boxing career, with four of his wins coming via knockout.

Paul, 24, is 4-0 in his career. His last win came in August, when he defeated MMA fighter Tyron Woodley in a split decision.

Jake Paul's biggest boxing challenge to date

The fight should provide Paul with his biggest challenge yet. 

The YouTuber's first two fights came against opponents with no fighting history - fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson. 

Paul took on Ben Askren and then Woodley. Both men have martial arts experience, but never specialised in boxing.

Fury started fighting professionally in 2018 before taking a break to appear on Love Island.

The 22-year-old has participated in four fights since the show, winning all of them. 

His last win came in August, when he defeated Anthony Taylor as part of the undercard before the Paul-Woodley fight.

“Tommy claims to have been doing this his whole life and he’s had this amateur career, and he’s been around it and that is true, but he hasn’t worked as hard as me," Paul said at a pre-fight media conference. 

"I see a green guy who hasn’t sparred enough times and who has only been put in there with opponents that were meant to lose. 

"This is his first real test where his opponent just doesn’t flop over."

Fury said he felt like he'd "won the lottery".

"You’re asking me to fight on a massive world stage, you’re going to pay me nicely, and all I’ve got to do is fight Jake Paul. A YouTuber," he said.

"I’m going to splatter him December 18. I’ve won the lottery. I’m begging Jake Paul, please do not pull out. 

"Because normally, when we get to this stage in boxing, you’ve got to fight for a world title. But I’m fighting a YouTuber. Sign me up."
