YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul has garnered attention in the fight game and has ended up butting heads against Dana White. After his fifth boxing win, ‘The Problem Child’ has called out Dana White’s starfighters such as ‘Gamebred’ Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz.

Instead, the long-time UFC boss cajoled Jake Paul to face off against a credentialed boxer. Hence, it is clear that White certainly has no interest in releasing any of his fighters under contract to go over to the realm of boxing.

He said, “No, no. You notice he wants to fuc**ng fight everybody that’s not in his weight class. Guys that are older and all this bullsh*t. Go find a boxer. Go hump somebody else’s leg, you goofball.”

Who is lined up next for Jake Paul?

Despite ‘The Problem Child’ showing a lack of interest in fighting Tommy Fury after he recently pulled out, Jake Paul might still revisit the younger Fury. As ‘TNT’ Fury is a professional boxer, earning a win over the Brit would be massive for Paul’s legacy in the sport.

With John Fury and Tyson Fury in Tommy Fury’s corner, promoting the fight, it’s more than likely that the buzz will be built up once again. Jake Paul has already faced two UFC fighters in his last three fights and fans may want to see something new.

However, Paul will still be holding out hope to possibly face Nate Diaz sometime in 2022. Stockton’s second son has only one fight left on his contract and he might not choose to re-sign with the UFC.
