Jake Paul returns to action this weekend on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. boxing card, but the boxer also has his sights set on Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren.
Paul is confident that Manny Pacquiao could beat McGregor in their boxing match, which is why he believes the bout between him and McGregor is bound to happen.
“There’s no other fighter with as big of a platform as me that’s calling him out right now,” Paul told CBS Sports (via The Score). “He wants to fight Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao will destroy him. It will be another embarrassing night for him, just like when he got embarrassed by Floyd (Mayweather). So, Jake Paul versus Conor McGregor is bound to happen. I know he’s seen these interviews, I know he’s seen the shit talk. It’s gonna happen.”
It seems like Paul versus McGregor could be a boxing match, which neither Paul or McGregor have showed much aptitude at.
The Youtube sensation also has his sights set on Masvidal and Askren.
“That level of competition is harder than what these MMA guys are bringing,” Paul said. “These MMA guys have to go into the gym and have to worry about elbows and kicks and Jiu-Jitsu and takedowns and takedown defense all this extra stuff. I’m only boxing. So, when they come into the boxing ring, my skillset is higher than theirs right now. I’m ready for these guys right now. So, Ben Askren, Masvidal, the McGregor’s they’re going to get the smoke and people will see.”
