Jake Paul says he wants to fight UFC stars Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal to prove he is a 'legitimate boxer'

YOUTUBE star Jake Paul has expressed his desire to rub shoulders with some of the UFC's top dogs in order to prove he is 'someone that people should be scared of'.

Paul, 23, continues to pursue a professional career in boxing after winning his first professional fight against fellow Youtuber, AnEsonGib.

The Youtube sensation wants to bring UFC fighters such as Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren over to the boxing ring to prove he is a 'legitimate boxer'.

He has also expressed his desire to fight UFC legend Conor McGregor.

Speaking to the Mayweather Boxing Channel, Paul said: "I want to prove to people that I'm a legitimate boxer, legitimate professional boxer with skill and someone that people should be scared of.

"I have knockout power, I'm dangerous, and to me that's super important and again, that's just going to take multiple fights to prove that.

"I want to fight the biggest names in the sport, I want to take UFC fighters like Ben Askren, like Masvidal, whoever it is and bring them over to boxing, put them in a ring and go head-to-head with them.

"I want to fight Conor McGregor eventually. Whoever wants to get in the boxing ring with me, I want to be able to do it and beat them."

Paul's desire to get into boxing started back in 2018, when he took on English Youtuber KSI's litter brother, Deji.

The pair clashed at the Manchester Arena, and Paul won the fight by TKO.

After finally being able to compete professionally, Paul stepped into the ring to fight AnEsonGib in Miami Florida in January 2020.

He ended the fight within one round before calling out KSI in the hope to restore his brothers honour.
