Jake Paul sets terms for next boxing opponent after confirmed return

Jake Paul is set to return to the boxing ring in August and while no opponent has been named, the social media star knows exactly what he wants from his next fight.

After defeating Tyron Woodley in late 2021, Jake Paul took a bit of a break from boxing as he focused more on the promotions side of things than training with his Most Valuable Promotions brand.

However, he showed his hand a bit in early February, revealing that he plans to return to the ring sometime in 2022 and that he has already started thinking about opponents.

Fast-forward to March 25, and the YouTuber has confirmed he’ll be back in action in August against a yet-unnamed opponent. Although once again he knows exactly what kind of fighter he wants to take on.

Jake Paul is currently 5-0 in his boxing career.

The 25-year-old teased the idea of ​​giving up boxing for MMA and taking on the “infamous” Conor McGregor, but he went on to say it TMZ he has ideas if that falls through.

“The list goes on, you know,” Jake said of his potential next opponent. “We’re in talks with a few different people. We’re toying with the idea of ​​going into MMA for the next fight, so we’re in negotiations. We talk to a lot of different people and see who makes the most sense.”

The YouTuber reiterated that there’s a “long list” of people he wants to take on, but it’s all up in the air. “It depends on who’s ready and who can sell the most pay-per-views,” he added. “Up until now I haven’t really fought someone with a big name like me, I’ve really gotten all the promotion so I want to fight someone with a big name like me and that’s what we’re doing. re looking to do.”

A few championship caliber fighters – including Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Mairis Briedis – have already thrown their hats in the ring to fight Jake, with Briedis even offering a shot at his IBF cruiserweight title.

Jake has previously downplayed the idea that he could finally take on longtime rival Tommy Fury now that the Brit has pulled out of their fight in December 2021, but it would certainly draw a lot of attention.
