For a guy like Paul, who never shies away from speaking his mind, this isn’t much of a surprise, as he regularly engages in trash talk and calls out the biggest names in combat sports. He has done so in the past with Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, and Ben Askren. Now, the former UFC BMF title challenger is on his radar.

Although he hasn’t really fought a legitimate boxer yet, the YouTuber is slowly but steadily creating a niche for himself in the world of boxing. He is currently standing 3-0 in his short but highlighted boxing career.
