Paul has relentlessly called out McGregor during his venture into the world of professional boxing.
He recorded his fourth win of his budding career, outpointing former UFC champion Tyron Woodley last month.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer continues to eye a fight against McGregor, but Javier Mendez believes the Irishman would be no match for the 24-year-old American.
The American Kickboxing Academy coach told Betway Insider: "Jake has got so many advantages on Conor.
"Size being one of the big major ones, and the fact that he's been boxing for three-plus years with really good boxing professionals that know what they're doing.
"So, no, he shouldn't have to fear Conor whatsoever."
Mendez added that Paul has to fear fighters like Canelo Alvarez.
He said: "Instead, he has to fear people like Canelo (Alvarez). He would just smash him in one round. It would be embarrassing.
"He hasn't got a chance against those kinds of guys; he really should stay away from him.
"But against Conor, absolutely he has a chance. Looking at the two, Jake's got big advantages in size and power.
"Yes, he doesn't have fight experience, but he's been strictly just boxing for a long time now. Conor's not been strictly boxing."
Mendez continued; "I have first-hand knowledge of seeing Jake do his stuff. I have videos that his coaches were sending me, and I have had words with the people that he was sparring with.
"The guy's legit. He's the real deal. Don't get me wrong; he's not a top level guy. You can't be top-level with three pro fights, but he has skills and he has power and he has great coaching.
"He really does. And he's a good athlete, so combine all those together, and he's gaining momentum."
A bout between Paul and McGregor appears unlikely at this stage, unless the former UFC double champion fights out his current contract or receives Dana White's blessings.
