The two men will step into the ring in Manchester on Saturday night

Tommy Fury has aimed a dig at KSI by saying Jake Paul is 'a lot better of a man' than the YouTuber-turned-boxer.

The two men will go up against each other at the AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday night.

Fury and KSI have been regularly exchanging verbal blows prior to the contest - only adding to the hype and excitement in the process.

The Brit is the favourite to prevail, having won all nine of his fights so far.

And Fury has now aimed a dig at KSI by saying Paul, who he beat back in March, was a better man than his opponent.

"At the end of the day, Jake's alright," he told The Sun.

"Jake's a lot better of a man than KSI I can tell you that.

"But at the end of the day I'm focussed on KSI, I'm going to come for him and then we can sit round the table and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last dealings with the Pauls."

A rematch seems to be off the table, however.

Paul's fight with Fury was a close one, with the American pushing his opponent all the way before winning on points.

And Fury has insisted there's no chance of the two men fighting again, despite Paul's desire for a rematch.

"At the end of the day, we had our beef, our fight, we settled it all in the ring and for now that's died down," he said.

"There's always going to be a fight there as I'm sure he wants to get that fight back - but that's never going to happen.

"And at the end of the day he can sit there and watch what should have been done to him."

Fury has hinted that he'd be open to fighting Paul's brother, Logan.

Logan is currently focused on his own boxing showdown with Dillon Danis on Saturday.

There's been scenes of chaos prior to that battle, with Danis striking his rival on the head with a microphone.

Logan has since confirmed the scrap will go ahead, despite sustaining an injury to his head.

And Fury has welcomed the chance to face the 28-year-old.

"I'm going to solely concentrate on Saturday night, get a great performance God willing and then we'll get around the table and see what's next," he stated.

"I'm sure if Logan Paul wants it he can definitely have it, 100 per cent.

"I don't really care about these guys, any one of them, whoever wants it at that time, whoever puts up the best offer is gonna have the fight, aren't they?

"It doesn't matter to me who I fight, especially not with these guys."

Meanwhile, Fury has also condemned KSI for spitting at his father, John.

"I mean, yeah, I’ve seen it for myself now," he said, referring to footage that showed the YouTuber gobbing from a balcony.

"You know what surprises me, these YouTubers they’ve got loads and loads of kids that look up to them and admire them, they’re the perfect role models and whatever.

"Yet you’ve got KSI spitting over a balcony at a man who’s twice his age, his elder.

"Now you should respect your elders, have less to say.

"But I don’t understand [why people look up to him].

"It shows where the world is going when kids are looking up to people like that. Spitting over a balcony."
