Jake Paul has offered Tommy Fury $500,000 to fight him in the UK next month.
The boxer took to Twitter on Thursday to make the offer to his opponent after his team had issued Fury a termination notice on Wednesday.
He tweeted, while sharing Fury's statement regarding the cancelled fight: "I’m confident you are a scared little boy who doesn’t want to fight or understand business. I will pay you $500K to fight me in the UK. I will do it shortly after August 6. You accept?"

The pair were set to face off in a highly-anticipated fight at Madison Square Garden on 6 August, but their plans were thwarted after Fury failed to enter the US to join Paul in the ring.
In an Instagram Story, the former Love Island contestant said: "I'm gutted and disappointed in regards to the issues I have faced with entry into the USA.
"This is something that myself or my team could have never anticipated happening.
"This situation has been left with my lawyers as being denied entry into a country is obviously a very serious issue and it needs to subsequently be resolved."
He stated that he's 'confident' the fight will go ahead somewhere that both fighters can access, adding: "I want to clarify that I will fight in a neutral country that both parties can enter.
"This can be any time, any place, any where."
Fury's statement arrived shortly after Paul tweeted that his team had issued his potential opponent a termination notice yesterday.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer wrote: "Fury’s received a termination notice. MVP did everything it could 2 help him & team.
"He wasn’t interested & he literally went into hiding. 2nd time in a row he has pulled out. 2nd time in a row I’m going to step up & take on a new opponent on short notice. AUG 6. MSG."

This is the second time the pair have had to cancel plans to face-off in the ring, with Fury previously pulling out of their last fight in December due to 'a medical condition'.
Last week, the younger brother of Tyson Fury revealed that he'd been denied entry into Paul's home country for the fight as his Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) was denied.
In a video shared online, he said: "Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport, ready for the press conference, ready to fly out.
"As soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side and I was told by a Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA had been denied and that I wasn't able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know.
"I can stand here and say I've done absolutely nothing wrong, I've no clue why I'm not allowed to travel to the USA." You can read more on that here.
