And now the former Bellator Lightweight — who is 1-1 as a boxer — wants to fight the 2019 Love Island star.

Avila, 28, told TMZ Sports: “Tommy Fury got beaten up by the guy I beat tonight, which is funny.

“He obviously won, but he lost in that fight. It’s light work, it’s just another fight.

“Tommy Fury, don’t be afraid, she’s a bitch, so is AJ Mackie.”

Fury, 22, was in Florida to fight Paul, 24, but passed out with a broken rib and a bacterial chest infection.

Tyrone Woodley, 39, signed on as a late replacement, but was ruled out in a rematch just three months after losing on points.

He is now joined by YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, on Paul’s KO list.

Fury recently claimed that he is in talks to reschedule his fight with Paul, who still has to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

He said on Instagram: “I believe the fight is even bigger now. It’s an unfinished business.

“My team has reached out to his team to try to set a date for the start of next year.

“My recovery process is underway, I’ll be ready to go in March, so let’s get this fight back on track and sort it out.”
