1) Nate Diaz

In his post-fight interview, Jake Paul hit at UFC elites Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.

He said, “Ayy, and Masvidal and Nate Diaz, y’all are some b****es for leaving this arena because I know you don’t want that sh*t. I’ll take out both of ya’ll next. Just get out of your contract with daddy Dana and imma f**k them up too.” 

2) Jorge Masvidal

Over the past few months, Jake Paul traded enough verbal blows with Masvidal and Nate Diaz on social media and interviews. He had a rivalry with Diaz ever since he came into the limelight. However, he was on good terms with ‘Gamebred’ for a while, and now, ‘The Problem Child’ has Masvidal on his hit list too.

Regardless of his above comments, it’s tough for Jake Paul to fight Diaz or Masvidal next as both of them are in their UFC contracts. This makes it tough for Paul to get lined up for a fight with either of them.

3) Floyd Mayweather 

Mayweather and Paul entered a brawl earlier this year, which fueled the news of their fight subsequently. However, ‘TBE’ did not open up much on fighting ‘The Problem Child’ after his exhibition with Logan Paul.

Regardless of that, Mayweather always remains keen on banking millions of dollars. And if he really wishes to bag a lucrative match, Mayweather could just be the right person to lock horns with the YouTuber inside the ring.

4) Tommy Fury

Fury was supposed to be Paul’s very first pro-boxing opponent. But he pulled off from the December 18 clash because of medical reasons.

The doors for this fight are still open as Fury is on his way to recovery, and once he rejuvenates himself, he might look to set up a fight with ‘The Problem Child’.
