Jake Paul has taken aim at Tommy Fury's father John by recalling the prison sentence he served in 2011.

Paul will finally face a grudge match against bitter rival Fury on December 18 in Florida.

During the pair's press conference yesterday Paul clashed with Fury Sr who was agitated by some of the American's comments.

But Paul has now responded on Instagram with a reminder to Fury's father of his 11-year prison sentence for gauging a man's eye out.

The American posted a screenshot of a news report which detailed the sentencing of Fury Sr.

He accompanied this with a picture of Fury Sr stood on an American highway with the caption: "John Fury has escaped prison."

The incident took place at a car auction with Fury Sr having had a previous bust-up with his victim over a bottle of beer in Cyprus 12-years prior.

Fury Sr then served his prison sentence until February 2015 when he was subsequently released.

But now he will be unable to fly to America to watch his son Tommy face Paul due to his criminal record, which has also prevented him from following his son Tyson's trilogy with Deontay Wilder.

Paul's recent jibe has come after Fury Sr squared up to the TV he was broadcast on during a heated press conference.

And then his opponent's father began mocking Paul during an X-rated rant: "When Tommy beats you he is going to get your girlfriend and f*** her like a dog in front of you.

Paul retorted: "You are an old, cringe man who should not be on the stage.

"No-one gives a f*** about John Fury. You have never achieved anything in your life; you're living vicariously through your sons. I see three idiots on stage."

Fury quickly clapped back: "If you don't like it change the television channel. You are the idiot for taking this fight and you are getting it you bum. Enjoy the moment p****. Dream on d***head.

"This is the first real fight you are involved in and you are going to feel the wrath of Tommy Fury, I watched you last fight you were actually rubbish.

"I don't know who has blown smoke up your ringer but you are rubbish with a capital R.

"You are copping it and i can see the fear in your eyes underneath them glasses. Suck your d***, you don't have one underneath that g***."

Paul will now face the toughest challenge of his career against Fury who has a natural background in boxing with seven professional victories to his name.
