Famous YouTuber Jake Paul has revealed his desire to go toe to toe with some of the UFC’s most dangerous fighters to prove that he is 'someone people should be scared of'.
The 23-year-old YouTube star is keen to pursue a career in professional boxing, following on from winning his first professional fight against AnEsonGib.
Jake is looking to bring UFC fighters Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren into the boxing ring to demonstrate that he is a “legitimate boxer”.
Speaking on the Mayweather Boxing Channel, Jake had this to say: "I want to prove to people that I'm a legitimate boxer, a legitimate professional boxer with skill and someone that people should be scared of.
"I have knockout power, I'm dangerous, and to me that's super important and again, that's just going to take multiple fights to prove that.
"I want to fight the biggest names in the sport, I want to take UFC fighters like Ben Askren, like Masvidal, whoever it is and bring them over to boxing, put them in a ring and go head-to-head with them.
"I want to fight Conor McGregor eventually. Whoever wants to get in the boxing ring with me, I want to be able to do it and beat them."
Paul’s passionate interest to break into boxing started in 2018 when he took on YouTube star Deji, who is KSI’s younger brother.
The pair butted heads in the Manchester Arena, where Paul was the victor by TKO in the 5th round.
After being allowed to compete at a professional level, Paul stepped into the ring to face AnEsonGib in Miami, Florida back in January 2020.
He won the fight within the first round and proceeded to call out KSI to restore his older brother’s honour.
The Paul family is in a search for redemption after Logan was defeated by KSI in their second bout at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles in November 2019.
