Paul recently took to social media to reveal his New Year's resolutions which included to "go to chiropractor to heal back from carrying the sport of boxing."

But Bellew strongly disagreed and promptly replied to the American's tweet saying: “You couldn’t carry the jockstrap of a proper BOXER son. Please rephrase point 4!”

Speaking on the DAZN Boxing show, the former cruiserweight fighter explained that he doesn't have any hate towards Paul and doesn't like the idea that people label him as a boxer when he has yet to fight a fully-fledged boxer.

“First of all, I’ve got no hate or malice towards Jake Paul," Bellew said.

"Crack on, do what you’re doing, it’s great.

“But in no way shape or form can you claim to carry my sport you absolute f***ing muppet, he hasn’t even fought a boxer yet.

“So how can you claim to be carrying my sport when you haven’t fought someone who comes from my sport? It’s unbelievable.

“I don’t wanna jump on the bandwagon that everyone does and just slate him.

“I don’t like the fact it’s labelled a boxing match because he’s not facing a boxer.”

The 39-year-old then added that despite his feelings, he agree to fight Paul if an opportunity ever came about.

He said: “I don’t wanna face him. I mean, I’ve spanked his trainer [BJ Flores].

“So he’s never gonna call my name and I wouldn’t even entertain him if he did.

“He wouldn’t say my name because he knows. He wouldn’t and he couldn’t because I would take his chin off his face.

“It would last for a round and the only reason he would be still there is because for the first half of the round I’d be laughing at him.

“I’m not one of these fighters you play around with and poke at an event. If he poked me, I’m cracking him on sight. Simple.”

Paul is currently in discussions to arrange his next fight, with veteran boxer, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr a possible opponent.
