Jake Paul Wants To Fight Conor McGregor And Jorge Masvidal To Prove He Is A 'Legitimate Boxer'

Jake Paul Wants To Fight Conor McGregor And Jorge Masvidal To Prove He Is A 'Legitimate Boxer'

YouTube star Jake Paul has insisted that he wants to fight UFC stars like Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal to "prove to people that I'm a legitimate boxer."

The 23-year-old American, whose brother is fellow YouTube star Logan Paul, previously fought at amateur level in 2018 against KSI's younger brother, Deji Olatunji.

And Paul has since made his professional boxing debut when he fought fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in 2019 and picked up a first-round TKO victory.

The YouTuber is continuing his professional boxing career with a second fight against former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard for the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr exhibition bout on 28th November.

However, Paul is already looking beyond the Robinson fight and wants the opportunity to compete against the likes of McGregor and Masvidal.

"I want to prove to people that I'm a legitimate boxer, legitimate professional boxer with skill and someone that people should be scared of," he told The Mayweather Channel.

published ata year ago

"I have knockout power, I'm dangerous and, to me, that's super important and again, that's just going to take multiple fights to prove that.

"I want to fight the biggest names in the sport, I want to take UFC fighters like Ben Askren, like Masvidal, whoever it is and bring them over to boxing, put them in a ring and go head-to-head with them.

"I want to fight Conor McGregor eventually. Whoever wants to get in the boxing ring with me, I want to be able to do it and beat them."

Paul has admitted that he has been keen to avenge his brother's defeat to KSI and also fight the YouTuber's trainer, Viddal Riley.
