The 24-year-old has formed his own ‘Most Valuable Promotions’ and has already signed seven-division champion Amanda Serrano. Hence, the social media star turned boxer is also a manager/ promoter now. He was asked to throw some advice for Conor McGregor if the UFC star would have been one of his clients.

In response to that, Paul, in a chat with talkSport, said, “If Conor was my client I would say stop drinking you Irish idiot,”

“Put the bottle down, put the bottle down and get some Ws! And those fake teeth are ugly as f***.”

Conor McGregor hasn’t really bothered to trade slurs with Jake Paul. But ‘The Problem Child’ has appeared adamant about going after ‘Notorious’. Following McGregor’s back-to-back losses against Dustin Poirier, Jake Paul came out and humiliated the former two-division UFC champion on social media platforms.

He even claimed himself to be a better boxer than Conor McGregor. While many people may disagree, the stats speak otherwise. McGregor is 0-1 as a professional boxer, whereas Jake Paul is now 4-0. However, while McGregor went against Floyd Mayweather, arguably the best boxer of all times, Jake Paul hasn’t faced a single pro-pugilist.

These massive contrasts reflect Paul to be levels below Conor McGregor. However, the UFC elite has suffered some major setbacks in his MMA career. As he is on a two-fight losing streak for the first time, he cannot afford to contract another defeat.

Will we ever see Jake Paul and Conor McGregor cross paths?

‘Notorious’ McGregor hasn’t really shown interest in lacing the boxing gloves if not for a rematch against Floyd Mayweather. He has also vowed to remain active in the UFC, throwing his aim towards re-capturing his lost lightweight (155 lbs) title. Hence, Jake Paul’s provocations don’t appear to affect the MMA star. He has outlined his plans, and Paul is nowhere near his combat radar.

But crossover matchups have been a prime factor in popularizing today’s boxing. And we all are aware of Conor McGregor’s sharp eye for the money fights. So, it will be wrong to write away the chances of Paul vs McGregor. The possibilities are bleak, but on bringing both men under similar terms and conditions, they can unleash a blockbuster-entertaining fight that can shatter several PPV records.
