Tommy Fury subjected to taunts about Jake Paul and girlfriend Molly-Mae

Tommy Fury was subjected to taunts over Jake Paul and his girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague prior to his fight against Jordan Grant.

TNT remains unbeaten after six fights after claiming a points win over his opponent on Saturday night.

But the Telford crowd was particularly hostile as the Love Island star made his way to the ring.

His father, John, was furious after the fight and lambasted the fans in attendance for their "obscenities" and insisted it affected his mindset.

Some of the kinder taunts that can be published include "you're scared of Jake Paul" and "your bird is too fit for you".

Fury's father said: "That kid [Grant] was strong and hard, he is a cruiserweight. He was 13 and a half stone, he was in shape that kid.

"Tommy had him in a bit of trouble. I was happy with it but the first round was horrendous because the crowd were shouting obscenities as Tommy walked to the ring.

"You heard it yourself. It is not nice. He is 22. And they never showed him any respect tonight.

"It half put him off the job, it took him a round to settle into it.

"Because when you hear stuff like that coming into the ring is diabolical.

"He is trying to do a living, he is trying the best he can to entertain the people and they are coming out with rubbish like that."

Should Tommy Fury fight Jake Paul next? Leave your comments below.

Fury has been touted to take on YouTube star Paul in the ring next after several barbs between the two.

The Ohio-born sensation is set to fight former MMA star Tyron Woodley next after winning his last three bouts by knockout.

However, Paul has yet to face an actual boxer having beaten fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson and retired Bellator champion Ben Askren.

As for Fury, he will hope for better performances in the future after an ugly win over Grant – who was in his third fight.

The 22-year-old earned a 40-36 points victory after fending off some early aggression from his lesser-spotted rival.

But as the fight went on, Fury grew and grew – managing some fine shots in the second and the third – while Grant only gave the younger Fury brother one moment of trouble.
