Jake Paul remains a “problem child” for former UFC champ-champ Conor McGregor.

The social media star-turned-boxer has been itching for a bout against “The Notorious,” and he is trying his best to instigate it.

“This is embarrassing @thenotoriousmma. Your chin wide open with no head movement for the PRBLM CHILD. Right hand of God.

“I would KO Conor in boxing or MMA. Right hand of God.”

The Problem Child

Paul has taken the boxing world by storm by knocking out all his opponents. Paul has made an impact from a fellow YouTuber to a retired basketball star in Nate Robinson to two MMA champions.

A new breed of athlete-entertainer-entrepreneur, Paul is steering his career his way and making plenty of enemies in the process. He has also been angling for a fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

The multi-weight class boxing superstar is not concerned as he has already picked out his next two fights in Dmitry Bivol and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin III.

The Hit List

However, Paul has many targets on his hit list, and he goes at them equally in true Paul trolling fashion. After Jorge Masvidal lost UFC 272 to Colby Covington, Paul came for him in a continuous war of words that smells like potential fight hype.

“First of all, Masvidal, you ain’t rich.”

“We already know Conor can’t finish Diaz.”

“Right fight to make is Masvidoll vs. Macgregor. 50/50 fight, ends in KO. Both can throw, and both have weak chins.”

New Moves

Paul was supposed to fight Tommy Fury; however, he rematched Tyron Woodley and knocked him out in the sixth round after Fury was injured. He then swiftly said he was moving beyond Fury.

However, Paul has also become another title: fighter advocate. He has stated his belief in a union and torched UFC president Dana White for the fighter pay of the premier MMA organization.

He also has advocated reform in the way boxing is scored:

“I think there should be 6 boxing judges for title fights.

3 pairs of 2

Each pair has to agree on the same score at the end of the round & if they don’t, they briefly debate their reasoning

Almost like a jury system

These poor decisions change the shape of the sport forever.”

Most Valuable

He has also been a staunch advocate of women’s boxing and is the promoter of boxing veteran Amanda Serrano.

“Too humble! Most accomplished professional Hispanic female athlete of all time is more accurate. Tell us different? Amanda Serrano,” tweeted Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions.

Conor McGregor dropped a video to show the world he is getting in shape for a return to action. The former champion faced Dustin Poirier in a trilogy fight in 2021 at UFC 264, losing the fight via technical knockout in round one.

Notorious MMA

McGregor suffered an injury that made the ringside doctor stop the bout. He had a broken tibia and could no longer continue.

However, McGregor has been angling for a trilogy fight against Nate Diaz. The two have a win apiece against each other.

Jake Paul continues to be the spark boxing needs, and wherever his attention is paid, there is likely a fight to be made.
