Tyson Fury has welcomed social media brothers Logan and Jake Paul to boxing – in stark contrast to fellow world champion Canelo Alvarez.
Jake Paul has won his first three fights a professional prizefighter, albeit it with his victories coming against a fellow YouTube star, a retired basketball player and a former MMA star.
His older brother Logan has fought just once in the paid ranks, losing to KSI in 2019 before taking on ring legend Floyd Mayweather in an eight-round exhibition fight last month.
And Fury, whose brother Tommy has been at loggerheads with Jake over a potential fight, admitted he has liked what he has seen of the siblings.
"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," he told TMZ.

"Fantastic, guys. Well done if you're watching."
Alvarez, meanwhile, who is negotiating an undisputed super-middleweight world title fight with Caleb Plant, has been less than complimentary about the Paul brothers.
Ahead of his victory over Billy Joe Saunders in May, the Mexican said: "They could get them killed. This is not a soccer game, they could get them killed.
"Why do they give licences to people who have never in their life even thrown a punch?
"If there's a death, the commission will be responsible. Why? Because they issued the licence for the fight.
"I truly believe that it's a lack of respect. It's all based on money. It's all for money. I'm focused right now on other projects.
"I have other stuff going on, and I would invite him (one of the brothers) for a sparring session so that he truly knows what it's all about.
"For true fighters, I do believe it is a lack of respect."
Fury is currently preparing for his third fight with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.
The heavyweight rivals will clash 17 months after Fury stopped his American adversary in the seventh round of their rematch.
He had hoped to pitch Tommy against Jake Paul on his undercard at the T-Mobile Arena on July 24, but the YouTube star will instead take on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley next month.
Fury insists, however, that his younger brother will have the measure of Paul should they eventually touch gloves.
"I think Tommy knocks him out cold. I think [Jake's] a decent fighter for sure," he added. "But I know Tommy's a dynamite puncher."
It was the Fury patriarch John who made Paul the latest offer following his son's most recent win.
"Good on Jake Paul doing what he's doing," he said. "Good luck to the kid, he's game enough to get in the ring and any man who gets in there is a game man.
"But it's a big difference coming from no crowd to a big crowd. This was new for him tonight but Jake Paul, we'll have you next.
"If you think he's no good, we'll take you on Tyson's undercard."
