Jake Paul takes a shot at Conor McGregor ahead of the mega-fight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano for the Undisputed Lightweight World Championship this Saturday.
The current Undisputed Lightweight Champion Katie Taylor is Irish. Perhaps the most famous fighter to ever come out of the country is ‘The Notorious‘ Conor McGregor. However, he has hit a snag in recent times as the 33-year-old is on a 2 fight losing streak. McGregor only has 1 win in his last 4 fights.
The 25-year-old YouTuber made fun of that as he predicted that his client Amanda Serrano will hand Katie Taylor the first loss of her career. He further added that it will be the beginning of Taylor’s downfall just like her countryman. Jake Paul said,

“For the Irish, I feel bad for y’all, because this is the start of Katie Taylor’s losing streak, just like Conor McGregor.”
The biggest women’s boxing match between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano goes down on April 30th inside the Madison Square Garden. The Unified Featherweight Champion will fight the Undisputed Lightweight Champion in a historic clash, the likes of which female boxing is yet to witness.
Is Jake Paul calling out Conor McGregor?
Despite being a new addition to the world of combat sports, Jake Paul has instantly become one of the biggest draws around. He has also been very selective about his potential to maximize his star power. However, by knocking out the likes of Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, he has also irked a lot of MMA fans as well. But he did not stop there. Jake Paul went after the biggest name in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Conor McGregor.

Although McGregor has not responded to Jake Paul’s call-outs, it did not stop the celebrity boxer from repeatedly trying to lure him into a verbal altercation. A fight between the two would be a huge PPV seller without a doubt. But it does not seem like Conor is interested in being involved with the younger Paul brother in any way.
The Problem Child recently spoke on boxing the legendary MMA fighter Anderson Silva. Conor McGregor on the other hand is still in recovery, but he is expected to fight later this year. However, there aren’t any words on who may be the opponent for his return. While many want Conor to have a tune-up fight, will the UFC opt for it? Only time will tell.
