The YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul recently reckoned that his ideal next opponent would be Jorge Masvidal. He said that the UFC welterweight would be the toughest opponent of his career to date. He further added that a fight against ‘Gamebred’ would make sense because of their recent verbal exchanges. Jorge Masvidal Leaks Surprising Megan Fox Video
But, it is upto the UFC President Dana White, and the potential fight with Masvidal could only take place if White grants it in the first place. ‘The Problem Child’ further called UFC president “greedy,” Paul said White would probably block the bout. The YouTuber suggested that UFC fighters being defeated in boxing matches makes White’s promotion look bad.
Jake Paul opens up on a potential bout with Jorge Masvidal
Paul recently bagged a win over Tyron Woodley in his fourth professional boxing match. He won the fight via a split decision. Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Paul was asked which fighter he would love to take on next. He responded:
Just from a personal standpoint, I would love for it to be (Jorge) Masvidal. Just because of the s**t talk, just because of his name, just because he is still in his prime era, and there’s a lot of personal beef there. I just took out his boy Tyron (Woodley). But hopefully, Dana would let him out of his contract. But we’re not sure if that can happen. But for me, personally, I think that would be the toughest challenge. The toughest guy and the biggest name, the most relevant currently. I think it will happen at some point regardless, but (Masvidal) is at the top of my list for sure,” said Jake Paul.
