Tyson Fury has been "terrorising" Jake Paul on Instagram messenger.
YouTuber-cum-boxer Paul has been gearing up to take on Tyson's younger brother Tommy in a grudge match where they finally get to settle their differences.
Paul has never been one to shy away from trash-talking, but unfortunately for him, heavyweight world champion Tyson has joined his brother's camp and has already started engaging in the mental warfare side of battle.
Speaking to iFL TV, Tyson revealed that he has been working hard to train Tommy up for the bout next month, but when the gym doors slam shut he jumps straight on social media and pings Tommy's rival a couple of cheeky messages.
"I've been terrorising Jake on his inboxes. They think they're little talkers, but welcome to my world," Tyson Fury said.
"I rule the talking world. Me. Not pretend videos and stuff, actually, like, rule it."
It's strange to admit, but this fight is genuinely shaping up to be a pretty interesting one.
Disney star Paul currently boasts a professional record of 4-0 but has fought 40-year-old retired mixed martial artists, an NBA star and a fellow YouTuber.
Meanwhile, standing across the ring from him, former Love Island contestant Fury is also undefeated in his seven bouts but has looked rather underwhelming against pretty stock standard opponents.
However, Tommy's older brother - who happens to know a thing or two about fighting - reckons there's only one winner in this bout.

"I know how good Tommy is," Tyson added.
"I've seen him knock people spark out in the gym every day. He's a real banger.
"And when gets one shot on Logan Paul (Jake), he'll be kissing the canvas.
"Goodnight Vienna. Bye, bye.
"I want a big, old, dirty knockout like Tommy keeps talking about."
Tommy, who is the bookies' favourite heading into the grudge match, has vowed to derail the Jake Paul hype train by knocking him out in the first round.
