​Jake Paul has jokingly (we think...) called out Vladimir Putin and even released a training video as well as a mock poster in wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The budding boxing star hasn't got his next opponent lined up following his destructive win over Tyron Woodley last year. 

However, it appears he has his sights set on the Russian president... not really, but who knows with 'The Problem Child'. 

It comes after Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine, with Russia attacking the country.

Paul jokingly announced a fight with Putin and shared a mock poster for the event. 

He uploaded an image of Paul vs. Putin, accompanied with the caption: "Big news. Tickets on sale next week. #PaulPutin brought to you by @TimJDillon promotions."​

Paul's older brother, Logan, also weighed in - mocking Putin with a couple of tweets. 

In one tweet, he wrote: "He needs to be Putin his place."​

In another tweet, he said: "He gonna be Russian to the hospital after this."​

Don't hold your breath for Paul vs. Putin, with the 25-year-old eyeing the likes of Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Kamaru Usman.

He also likes the idea of boxing former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., with fans and critics clamouring the YouTuber star to fight a genuine boxer instead of an MMA fighter. 

Logan, who hasn't competed since boxing Floyd Mayweather, hopes his younger sibling fights Diaz before facing McGregor.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani, he revealed: "I'd love to see [Jake] him fight Nate Diaz. Then eventually Conor McGregor, I think that would be such a cool fight."

In the meantime, the 5-0 fighter will help promote the upcoming super-fight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano.
