YouTuber turned Pro Boxer Jake Paul recently spoke to ESPN. The 2-0 boxer will be facing Ben Askren on April 17 in the main event of the next Triller Fight Night series.
During the interview, Paul stated that he is still looking for a fight against UFC legend Conor McGregor.
‘I just think McGregor has that name where he will be big in this sport for a while” Jake Paul began. “But, if he loses again to Poirier, I’ll be like ’˜yo let me fight Poirier,’ why not? He has to win in his own sport first and then maybe we can figure something out.”

“I’m Conor’s money fight right now as crazy as that sounds” Paul continued. “Khabib retired, he’s all pissed off about it. Jake Paul vs. Conor McGregor is the money fight. It’s funny, what world are we living in where that even makes sense?”
Although the prospect of Conor McGregor vs Jake Paul in a boxing ring is very unlikely; this could be a major, major box office attraction and a number of PPV outlets would be begging to host that match-up.
