YouTuber Jake Paul has let rip at opponent Tommy Furry after he withdrew from their boxing match later this month.
Fury - the brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, was set to square off against Paul in a highly-anticipated boxing bout to end the year.

The pair have been trading ugly barbs ever since Paul defeated former UFC fighter Tyron Woodley back in August.
However, despite the press conferences in the lead up to the bout having already started, Paul took to social media to confirm reports Fury had indeed withdrawn due to illness.
Paul labelled Fury "boxing's biggest b***h," before he claimed his rival had 'fumbled the biggest purse' of his life by pulling out of the bout.
Fury later released a statement to claim he was withdrawing due to a chest infection and a broken rib.
"I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight wth Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib," he said.

Jake Paul set for rematch with Tyron Woodley
Paul confirmed his previous opponent, Woodley, would step in on short notice.
“He has been training. He goes, ‘Sure, I’ll take the fight, let’s do the rematch, run it back,’” Paul said of the bout.
But the YouTuber increased the stakes of the rematch.
Paul said he has offered $500,000 to Woodley if he knocks him out.
“Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2. Leave no doubt, I didn’t knock him out the first time, I’m coming back and I’m getting that crazy W, the crazy highlight real knockout… the show must go on,” Paul said.
During their first bout, Paul started off the more active fighter in his third pro bout against the 39-year-old retired UFC star and appeared to take the first three rounds with his reach and jab.
But Woodley, known for his wrestling in the UFC, took the centre of the ring as Paul started to tire and landed a huge right hand that nearly sent the YouTuber through the ropes.
Woodley then chased Paul around for two rounds as the YouTuber attempted to regain his footing.
But, despite a clearly fatigued Paul on the back-foot for the remainder of the rounds, Woodley didn't appear to do enough to capitalise in the eyes of two judges.
Despite the split decision - hardly as convincing as he had predicted - Paul remains undefeated in his boxing career.
