One of the most polarising boxers at the moment, Jake Paul came face to face with Tyron Woodley once again during the press conference for the upcoming fight.
It was an exciting press conference with both Woodley and Jake Paul trading verbal shots and predicting a 3rd round knockout. But, things got heated when the name of Conor McGregor got brought up by a reporter.
When Jake Paul was asked whether he would consider fighting Conor McGregor in the future despite his recent losses, the Problem Child stated:
“I think it could happen. The funny thing about this journey is I have predicted everything that has happened so far. 18 months ago when I said I want to fight Conor people laughed at me. Now I am laughing at Conor with a broken ankle sitting in the octagon. And he needs Jake Paul more than I need him. So my offer to Conor is 23 dollars. And if we ever fought I would knock those fake a** teeth right out of his mouth.”
Should Conor McGregor and Jake Paul fight each other?
Jake Paul even predicted a brutal knockout loss for Conor McGregor if he ever steps into the ring with him. The Problem child gave his props to Dustin Poirier for his win over McGregor but he also pointed out the weight difference between Dustin Poirier and Paul. He explained:
“Dustin Poirier is an amazing guy, but he is 5’9 and 155 lbs. I am 6’1, 200 lbs. So Conor McGregor would not stand a chance.”
Well, it is not insane to speculate a fight between Conor McGregor and Jake Paul. But, it all depends on what McGregor wants to do. He is in the business of prized fighting. And it can be argued that no one in the world of combat sports is a bigger draw than Conor McGregor right now.
So the question is what does Paul has to offer to Conor McGregor. Why should McGregor accept the fight when he can box legends such as Manny Pacquiao? Surely $50 million is huge money but it does not look that huge when the highest-paid athlete, Conor McGregor sits at the table.
Nevertheless, Jake Paul is slowly but steadily making his name in the world of boxing. And if he knocks out the former UFC champion Tyron Woodley and keeps winning against big opponents in impressive fashion then that might make McGregor consider this fight.
