The YouTuber said, “There’s a lot of business to do. I wanna bring MMA fighters into the boxing ring and embarrass them. Conor McGregor is the only MMA fighter that’s really come over to the boxing ring.”

He also added that he wants to call Dana White and talk about his lofty ambitions. Paul wants White to bring his biggest stars into the Boxing ring to fight him. He also added that he isn’t willing to fight anyone else unless it’s a massive name.

Jake Paul wants people to tune in whenever he fights

Paul believes he has achieved star status. Now he wants people to be electrified every time he steps into the ring. He believes that people should be in awe whenever he does lace up the gloves and climb into the squared circle.

He said, “Every time Jake Paul fights, I want there to be an electricity in the air everyone can feel. And people have to tune in. And so, I’m gonna challenge myself, I’m gonna find the right opponent and I’m gonna stay active. Let’s get it, I’m ready to go.”

Paul has left no stone unturned recently. Shortly after his win against Robinson, he called out both Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis, and claimed that he’d knock both out. He also called out the likes of Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren. No doubt he has got confidence in himself as of now after beating a celebrity and an NBA player.

Whether Paul can hang in the ring with an actual fighter is a big question mark. We’ll have to wait for the answer until he actually fights a significant opponent.
