"After an absolutely tremendous response to the fight announcement, we're hoping to announce a new date very soon along with some new exciting details," Fanmio founder and CEO Solomon Engel said in a statement at the time.

Now, The Sun reports that the American YouTuber's Triller backers are ready to offer the fight with Mayweather for the "right price."

Relativity Media founder Ryan Kavanaugh, who is spearheading Triller's 'Fight Club' boxing promotion, believes a Jake win over Askren would provide him with "more credibility" to face Mayweather.

The 46-year-old told the newspaper: "For the right price, we would definitely do that. If Jake wins this fight, it makes a big difference.

"He would have beat one of the best fighters there is, he may not be the best boxer, we don't know, but he's a real fighter.

"If Jake then calls for a big fight, he has a little more credibility to do it. If Jake wins this fight, he can go to major fights, a Mayweather-type thing."

Jake's coach, J'Leon Love, previously suggested there was a "major possibility" that the YouTuber could face Mayweather after Logan fought him.

"With Jake, it's a major possibility, a high chance," he said.

"I thought about it and then left it alone, but obviously Floyd and Jake are both in it to get the best out of it.

"Floyd is the pinnacle of it, so could it happen? Floyd is a businessman, so is Jake Paul, just as well as Logan, so if it makes money it makes sense."

The American has also been vocal about his desire to face Conor McGregor and even engaged in a heated rivalry with boxer Tommy Fury on social media.

Jake vs Askren will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, with the PPV priced at $49.99 in the US.
