TYSON FURY believes controversial YouTuber duo Jake and Logan Paul’s foray into the ring has provided a ‘breath of fresh air’ to boxing.
The much-maligned siblings have made millions of dollars over the past year with their high-profile clashes.
Jake, 24, most recently knocked out UFC star Ben Askren in an exhibition bout to stretch his pro record to 3-0.
Meanwhile his 26-year-old brother last month took the legendary Floyd Mayweather the distance in an eight-round exhibition.
Despite their efforts, their antics both inside and outside the ropes have been blasted by a host of former boxing stars who feel they have disrespected the sport.
However the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion Fury, who is preparing to defend his titles in a trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, thinks differently.
In fact, the Gyspy King even congratulated the pair – despite their social media war of words with his own younger brother Tommy Fury.
He told TMZ Sports: “I've been pretty impressed with the Pauls – both of them – to be fair.
“They've been a good breath of fresh air to the boxing scene.
“Fantastic, guys. Well done if you're watching.”
Rumours have been mounting of a potential clash between the Fury and Paul family.

Tommy Fury labelled Jake a ‘massive p***y’ in April with the American responding by saying the call out was an 'act of desperation'.
After his victory over Askren, Jake is now focusing on his next fight with former UFC Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley.
Tyson Fury will face Wilder again for a third time on July 24.
Their first fight ended in a controversial split draw before Fury destroyed him in February 2020 to claim the belts.
