Jake Paul is on cloud nine after his latest win over Tyron Woodley last weekend. The 24-year-old YouTube sensation turned pro boxer bagged his fourth professional win.

Eddie Hearn, promoter for Matchroom Boxing, thinks Jake and his brother Logan have done a great job of finding a boxing audience in the US. Hearn admitted that, unlike the UK, it is difficult to find and make fights in the US. Hearn believes the Paul brothers have done more good, than harm to the sport, especially in the US.

On the other hand, Hearn believes the ‘Novelty’ of Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul will soon wear off, and he gave some solid advice to the younger Paul brother. “For me, if I’m Jake Paul now, I’m going, let’s be honest, it’s getting a bit boring. And it’s gonna get harder to make this kind of money. “Let’s just fight Conor McGregor or someone like that.”

“Let’s go to the bank and let’s make it a one seventy-something if he can get down there and just let’s, almost end this now. Like, I haven’t watched the whole fight, I’ve watched some of it and it was pretty bad. It’s gonna get worse and worse, so I think, just cash in.” 

Eddie Hearn believes another one or two more fights is all that’s left in Jake Paul’s career.

Even though Jake Paul has given Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley some conditions for their rematch, a fight with McGregor would make more sense. ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor has shown interest in fighting Jake Paul, and the two of them definitely know how to sell a fight.

With all the UFC fans Conor has, and the 20 million YouTube followers that Paul has, they will have no problem promoting their potential fight. It could possibly be at the scale of the Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather vs Logan Paul event that broke PPV records.
