Jake Paul has called out the former dual champion Conor McGregor and claims that the Notorious” is ducking him and hinted at how the former MMA champion doesn’t want to step inside the boxing ring with the YouTuber turned professional boxer.
Jake Paul looked in great spirits ahead of Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul’s exhibition bout that lasts all eight rounds. Many fans expected Floyd to finish Logan Paul, however, that wasn’t the case. The YouTuber thanked Mayweather for the opportunity and is now looking at a potential rematch with the former champion.
MCGREGOR IS DUCKING ME 🤣

Meanwhile, Paul, who was ringside for his elder brother’s bout claimed that Logan did enough to beat Floyd Mayweather. Be that as it may, Jake Paul is gearing up for his fourth professional bout, taking on former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in his next professional bout. However, Paul has repeatedly called out McGregor in the past, and his recent tweet suggests that the younger of the Paul brother is still looking to get the attention of McGregor for a huge payday.
How likely is Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor?
The likelihood of Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is very slim. The former lightweight and featherweight champion has expressed his desire to compete inside the cage and has no plans of once again moving to the boxing world.
McGregor’s return to the UFC is some sort of redemption that the Notorious is looking to achieve by once again climbing the lightweight division to become the 155-pound champion. In such a scenario, a match-up with YouTuber turned professional boxer Jake Paul seems very unlikely.
Additionally, McGregor doesn’t benefit much from a boxing bout with Jake Paul considering former multi-division champion Manny Pacquiao has already accepted to fight McGregor inside the boxing ring at some point. Meanwhile, it’s hard to ignore the stylistic match-ups that McGregor has ahead of him in his mixed martial arts career.
The Notorious takes on Dustin Poirier in a trilogy bout at UFC 264 next month. Needless to say, he will look to cement his position in the lightweight division once again with a win over the Diamond.
