Jake Paul emphatically knocked our Ben Askren within one round in their much hyped boxing match over the weekend and has now swiftly turned his attention to the future, saying that he believes a fight with Conor McGregor is now more likely and that he can finish Nate Diaz within three rounds.

Paul said the following after the fight at the weekend regarding any potential future matchups:
We’ll see,” “There are a lot of people. But honestly, when it comes down to signing the contract, these guys duck. Honestly, we’ll see. The McGregor fight just became more realistic, like I’ve been saying. I just want to do big fights.
I’m going to take some time off,” “I’ve been working my f*cking ass off. I’m only going to do big fights. I want to challenge myself at the same time. Ben Askren was a step up. OK, look what happened (in) 1:59. We’ll see who the next big challenge is. I don’t want to take some bullsh*t sh*t. I want to challenge myself. I want to do 3 million, 4 million pay-per-view buys. Who’s going to bring in those numbers?
Not really sure that ‘more realistic’ necessarily means that it’s actually realistic, but I suppose if Dustin Poirier beats Conor in the summer then he probably won’t be fighting too much in the UFC any more will he? Jake also seems to be angling for a fight with Nate Diaz as he randomly tweeted this on Sunday afternoon:
Nate Diaz gets KO’d in 3🤐

Fighting talk! Who knows who Jake Paul will fight next, but everyone is desperate to see his ass get handed to him so it seems highly likely that a whole load of people are probably going to tune in to watch it all go down. Even more now after he made such light work of Askren.
