Youtube star turned boxer Jake Paul insists that a rematch with Tommy Fury will take place in the coming future.

Back in February in Saudi Arabia, Fury pulled off an upset when he came off the floor in the eight and final round to secure a split decision over Paul, who suffered his first career defeat. 

Fury, the unbeaten younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, was the first pro boxer that Paul had faced in his career.

Paul had the ability to exercise an immediate rematch clause.

For the moment he went in another direction, with a finalized fight against MMA superstar Nate Diaz - which is scheduled to take place on August 5.

Provided he wins against Diaz, a rematch with Fury is on the agenda.

"It's going to happen, it's going to happen for sure," Paul told Sky Sports at the Miami Grand Prix.

"I think it was a great fight, it was entertaining, it was the biggest pay-per-view buys in boxing for the last two years so I think we have to run it back. Tommy is down and I'm excited for that."

Paul explained that he's willing to face any potential opponent, with a critical take on boxing's biggest names being unable to come together for a big fight - like the failed negotiations to make an undisputed fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

"It's annoying, I think in boxing fighters are not willing to risk their undefeated record and put it all on the line," Paul said.

"Their legacy and being undefeated is more important to them, because Floyd Mayweather set that example for the sport so if you lose you're 'swept under the rug' in boxing. But more champions should go and fight other big names, and that's why I respect Ryan Garcia for even taking the Tank fight. Even though he lost he did what a lot of other fighters aren't doing and making big fights happen."
