Five opponents for Jake Paul after Tyron Woodley KO including Tommy Fury, Mike Tyson and UFC star Conor McGregor

JAKE PAUL has now officially knocked out every opponent he has faced – and promised the best is yet to come.

After beating Tyron Woodley on points in August, the YouTuber vowed to leave no doubt in the rematch.

And following a brutal KO in round six of their rematch, Paul proved good on his promise.

Before and after the win, the American celebrity called out some of the biggest names out there.

And here SunSport runs down five potential next opponents for Paul.

Tommy Fury

Fury, 22, was set to fight Paul, 24, in a celebrity grudge match until he pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.

Woodley, 39, instead filled in on short notice and Fury was warned he had missed his chance forever.

But the biggest knock on Paul’s unbeaten five-fight record is that he is yet to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

And with Fury also a novice at 7-0, and physically equal to Paul, the fight could be too well matched to leave on the shelf.

Conor McGregor

The Irishman, 33, has been Paul’s No1 target ever since stepping foot in the ring.

McGregor does still have two bouts left on his UFC contract and in turn would be blocked from competing outside the octagon.

But in 2017 UFC president Dana White allowed his biggest attraction to fight and lose to Floyd Mayweather, 44, in the ring.

McGregor is likely the only one able to do the same again, and if the money was right, boxing Paul could be too lucrative to turn down.

Nate Diaz

Diaz, 36, on the other hand has just one UFC fight on his current deal and has already hinted at crossing over to the ring.

And Paul recently revealed he is looking to take a break from fighting after four bouts in 13 months.

It could give Diaz enough time to finish his final fight with the UFC before setting up a boxing match between them next year.

Diaz was also in attendance at Paul’s rematch with Woodley as his team-mate Chris Avila, 28, was on the undercard.

Anderson Silva

The Brazilian, 46, was released from his UFC contract in 2020 and returned to the boxing ring, where he was already 1-1.

What followed was a win over former boxing champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, 35, and fellow MMA legend Tito Ortiz, 46.

Silva then entered talks to fight Paul but nothing prevailed, meaning the matchup remains a possibility.

His current pro boxing record and legendary striking skills means even at his veteran age, he would provide a step up for Paul.

Mike Tyson

The heavyweight icon, 55, in November 2020 made his return after 15 years out and drew with Roy Jones Jr, 52, in an exhibition.

Paul knocked out ex-NBA player Nate Robinison, 37, on the undercard and built a friendship with Tyson.

But recently, Iron Mike has been linked with a fight against Paul’s brother Logan, 26.

And Paul then added fuel to the fire by naming Tyson on his four-man wish list of opponents.
