Jake Paul made huge claims on the former two-division champion of the UFC, Conor McGregor. The Youtuber turned boxer also believes that the Irishman is an easy fight for him.

The 24-year-old secured a big win against a former UFC fighter, Tyron Woodley, in an eight-round boxing match. Many fans and celebrities took to Twitter to share their reaction to the fight.

One of them was ‘The Notorious’ who only posted a single word, “Salivating.” While being asked about McGregor’s tweet in the post-fight interview, Paul responded by saying, “You know we are on the path to a lot bigger fights. I’m salivating too because I’m just getting warmed up. You know Conor McGregor has a lot more to focus on besides me right now.”

He added, “I’m five wins in a row; he’s one in three in the past four years so the guy needs to get off of his vodka or whatever the f**k his brand is and sober up and start getting back in the f**king gym and then we can f**king fight. But to be honest, no way he hits harder than Woodley. He doesn’t weigh as much as Woodley, he’s shorter than Woodley. I said it before the fight. I think Woodley’s a harder fight than him. Especially the way that he’s going. Conor’s going down. I’m going up. Woodley came in-game. We’ll see.”

McGregor later posted a video of a pasta dish which put the fans in doubt whether he was talking about the fight or the food. Moreover, in the event, this victory over Woodley will hugely reflect in Paul’s boxing resume. And the 24-year-old is just getting warmed up, as he said in the interview.
