A little less than a month has passed since Jake Paul's last performance. In his fifth boxing appearance, YouTuber knocked out Tyron Woodley and thus came to the most spectacular victory in his career to date. Paul was supposed to actually fight Tommy Fury, but Tyson Fury’s half-brother had to cancel the performance due to a rib injury.
It is unknown at this time who Jake's next opponent will be and whether it will be Fury. YouTuber seems much more interested in matches against UFC stars like Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal, or Nate Diaz. Of course, a match against McGregor would be the biggest possible for YouTubers, at least when it comes to UFC fighters.
However, the Irishman ridiculed Floyd Mayweather when he accepted a match against Logan Paul, Jake Paul’s older brother. Conor has made it known that he is not interested in such matches and does not pay any attention to provocations by YouTube.
However, if Conor continues to string together defeats under the auspices of the UFC, it’s not impossible for his attitude to change and decide to charge his name while still holding value. Jake coach BJ Flores is also hoping for that match, but he believes YouTuber actually has a realistic chance of winning.
The Schmo did an interview with Flores that revealed which names they were interested in.
Jake Paul's coach on the next opponent
"There are a lot of names in the game, a handful. However, it is clear that guys who are in the UFC have contracts.
Masvidal, Diaz and guys like them and McGregor would be stylistically good opponents for Jake." "He would beat them, and although that was said from my biased perspective, it would be very difficult for them to do what they normally do to beat Jake in a match in eight or ten rounds.
" The three fighters listed are noticeably better boxers than the UFC fighters Paul has met so far (Askren and Woodley). Still, UFC President Dana White has ruled out the possibility of allowing contract fighters to take out trips to such matches.
However, Nate Diaz has only one more match according to the current contract and it is not impossible to try in a boxing "celebrity" match after the expiration of the contract. Jake Paul has gained a lot of popularity in the ring, and UFC fighters are also aware that they could take the money Jake Paul has to wait
