JAKE PAUL believes he WILL fight Conor McGregor as the Irishman “keeps on LOSING”.
The American has spent much of his prizefighting career attempting to goad McGregor into the boxing ring.
And he reckons the Irishman – who has won just once in his last four fights – will soon be tempted by a $100million pay day.
Paul, 25, told The Mirror: “Look, he’s a business person and he sees how big of numbers that would do.
“And I’m the biggest fight for him in MMA or boxing. Biggest name, biggest fight and he’s going to want that payday.
“Especially if he keeps on losing, right? He’s going to think, ‘Maybe I’ll fight this YouTuber kid’ get a W real fast and make a hundred million dollars’.
“So it’s getting more and more real as time goes on.”
McGregor, 33, made his professional boxing debut in 2017 when he lost to Floyd Mayweather in ten rounds in Las Vegas.
He was given special permission by the UFC to go against his contract and fight outside of the promotion.
But he has just two bouts left on his current deal, meaning a move back to boxing could follow after.
Paul meanwhile is 5-0 as a pro and recently knocked out Tyron Woodley, 40, in December, having previously beaten the ex-UFC champion on points.
It added to KOs over online gamer ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren.
In an explicit rant while promoting Amanda Serrano’s super-fight with Katie Taylor, he hit out at the UFC and Dana White.
Paul fumed: “Here’s the thing about me, if someone talks s*** I have to f*** them up. I have a f***ing problem in my head.
“If someone talks s***, let’s settle it in the ring. Let’s see if you’re really about that or whether you’re just talking on Twitter.
“These guys who think they’re so tough, these “UFC” champions, who think they’re so tough, I’ll beat the f*** out of all of them.
“And I’ve got time, I’ve got time to do it, I’m young. Any of them can get it as fast as we can get these deals done, I’m knocking them all out.
“Bisping wants to talk s***? Cool, let’s get in the ring, motherf***er. You p***y.
“If anyone wants to talk s***, get in the f***ing ring, you p***y.
“Masvidal, you p****y. All these guys are all talk, they’re cap and their dad Dana owns them.”
