Jake Paul’s attempts to reinvent himself as a boxer are paying off: The YouTuber is preparing a fight with UFC star Conor McGregor.
The Team 10 collective head of creators really impressed the doubters last weekend when he knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in an undercard fight before Mike Tyson’s clash with Roy Jones, Jr.
Now, Paul reportedly has a big prize in his sights: the Irish UFC World Champion.
“My team is talking to his manager, but that’s all I’m going to say,” Paul told TMZ, adding that he plans to “fuck Conor McGregor.”
Jake’s Saturday success marked just his third time in the ring, following his first fight in 2018, when he beat Deji Olatunji, before defeating yet another short video star AnEsonGib in his second fight on January.
And she’s been dreaming of a date with McGregor ever since she embarked on her new sports career.
“I’m going to win too,” Paul bragged in the middle. “That’s what I want people to understand. I’m going to dedicate my life to winning that fight.”
Jake also told The Daily Beast last month that he’s really focused on his newfound passion during the coronavirus lockdown, noting that he’s “fallen in love with boxing,” which helps him “stay focused on becoming the best version of yourself.” of my self”.
He also tweeted that he’s the subject of a new boxing documentary, coming “coming soon.”
McGregor has yet to respond to Paul’s claims about a possible hit.
