‘The Problem Child’ is currently undefeated in his boxing career. Furthermore, he has three knockouts and one decision wins under his name. Previously, Paul faced the former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, inside the ring and won the match via a split decision.

The Ohio native and the former UFC champion recently clashed again inside the ring after Paul’s previous opponent pulled out of the bout. This time around ‘The Problem Child’ left no doubt and knocked out Woodley in the sixth round.

Following his successful win, ‘The Problem Child’ challenged some of the elite UFC fighters in the post-fight interview. After such success in boxing now, Paul wants to test deeper waters. He has previously called out some of the best in the game. However, none of the fights came to fruition.

In his post-fight interview, Paul said, “I just knocked out the five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company. And please let me get Kamaru Usman. Please let me get Diaz. Please let me get Masvidal, please let me get McGregor. Because I’m embarrass them too.”

However, this is not the first time ‘The Problem Child’ called out the UFC fighters. Ever since he entered the sport, he has been taunting the UFC fighters for a boxing match. However, the former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor interests him the most.

Will Jake Paul Get a Match Against Conor McGregor

‘The Notorious’ has been at the top of Paul’s list for his next opponent. However, the Irishman is currently recovering from a gruesome injury and will opt for a UFC lightweight title shot once he returns.

Interestingly, the former UFC champion has transitioned to boxing once in his career. He took on the boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather, inside the ring. However, ‘The Notorious’ suffered a knockout loss against Mayweather.

Even though the Irishman loves money fights and generates hefty pay-per-views in his bouts, he only takes on some of the bigger fish in the pound. Hence, he is not responding to Paul’s offer.
