Jake Paul already had an inflated ego before his bout on Saturday night, and it only got bigger after he smashed Nate Robinson in the second round in the undercard of the Tyson-Jones matchup.
After the fight, the YouTube star threw down the gauntlet to Conor McGregor after his brutal knockout win over Nate Robinson.
“I’ve been training my a— off for the past year,” Paul said. “I’m taking this seriously. I have a long list of opponents I want to fight.
“Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis: I will knock both of them out. There’s my brother [Logan Paul], Austin McBroom.
“I want to be in the sport for a long time. I’m in love with it. Why not?”
Paul expects his rise to combat sports stardom to eventually rival that of all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather.
“My career goal was to do exactly what I did,” Paul said at the Tyson vs. Jones Jr. post-fight presser. “To have an undeniable victory and steal the show. And prove to the boxing world, who has doubted me for the past six months, that I’m a pro boxer and I’m here to stay.
“When you put those 10-ounce gloves on me, I’m vicious, I can hit. I’m a real dog. When these MMA fighters come into the ring, they’re gonna meet ‘The Problem Child.’ They’re gonna meet me. And I’m here to make millions of dollars and sell millions of pay-per-view and I’m gonna be one of the biggest stars. I think I might just be the new Floyd.”
Paul improved to 2-0 as a pro boxer with his win over Robinson.
