The YouTube sensation is keen on calling out absolutely everyone in the fight game after knocking out Ben Askren earlier this month and he recently appeared live at UFC 261.
Usman defeated Jorge Masvidal by knockout in the main event and post-fight, claimed he's more interested in 'beating the s***' out of Paul than fighting Conor McGregor.
It has seen 'The Problem Child' hit back on Twitter and he said: "Challenge accepted. @USMAN84kg if your boss Dana [White] gives you permission to box me and make more money than you ever have, let me know and we can lace them up. I promise it will be your biggest pay day."

Usman is nicknamed 'The Nigerian Nightmare' and is considered one of the finest fighters in UFC right now.
He has since responded to Paul and stressed: "Keep making your money young man, and stay on that side. I ain't no Disney kid and I don't play fighting."
Paul is 3-0 when it comes to boxing, but many think Usman would be the fight that finally sees his undefeated streak end.
One fan commented: "You would get battered by Usman."
Another replied: "This guy is not beating Usman let's be real."
A third stated: "Dana would never let this happen. One thing for Ben Askren to get KO'd by Jake Paul, but imagine if the UFC current P4P gets KO'd by Jake Paul."
While someone else said: "Why are you calling out Usman, I just don't understand it. That would be a bad mistake."
The 24-year-old said: "In my third fight, I made more money in total pay than any fighter in UFC history.
"Maybe it's time to pay your fighters their fair share? No wonder they all want to get into boxing.
"Dana, you say you make the fights the fans want to see, so hurry up and make [Jon] Jones vs. [Francis] Ngannou. Pay them their fair share. $10 million purse for each guy plus pay-per-view.
"Why are UFC fighters so underpaid versus boxers? Why did I make more in my third fight than all but two (Khabib [Nurmagomedov] and Conor [McGregor]) UFC fighters have in history. I know why."
