Jake Paul doesn’t want to fight Mike Tyson or Roy Jones Jr – but promises Conor McGregor bout will ‘100 percent happen’

Jake Paul has only his second professional boxing match on Saturday and it’s on the undercard for Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.
Jake’s first outing saw him stop AnEsonGib on the undercard of his brother Logan Paul’s fight with KSI and now, some 10 months later thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, he is set to make his second outing.

This time around he’s facing former NBA player Nate Robinson. It’s hard to tell how good Paul can be, but he does appear to have good power and size at cruiserweight.
In the past, Paul has insisted that he could defeat Conor McGregor if the MMA superstars decides to put on the boxing gloves once more.
During an interview with BT Sport, Paul was asked if he could beat Tyson or Jones Jr and he gave an emphatic no. However, with McGregor, he became a lot more confident.
“Yeah, and I do believe that. These MMA guys, they go to practice everyday and they have to spend their day focusing on one thing,” Paul explained.
“Elbows, knees, grappling, ju-jitsu, takedowns, takedown defences, striking, leg kicks; so there is a lot that they have to work on.

“I’ve been going to the gym for the past three years and all I’ve been focused on is boxing. So come over to my arena and you’re going to get your ass beat.
“Jake Paul Vs Conor McGregor will happen. It will happen, 100 percent. People think that’s crazy ‘Jake’s going to get his ass beat’ – cool. We’ll see! We’ll see,” said Paul.
McGregor’s only flirt with boxing thus far has been a loss to Floyd Mayweather who is, ostensibly speaking, one of the greatest of all-time.
He has suggested that he will take on Manny Pacquiao in 2021 and there is no doubt that McGregor is one of the finest strikers in UFC history, but it’s a different ball-game.
If he was to ever meet Paul, there is a clear size and weight difference too with Paul at six-foot-one and about 200lbs. McGregor is five-foot-nine and with McGregor currently in the lightweight division, that’s 155lbs. That’s a big discrepancy.
Guess you can’t blame Paul for trying.
