Jake Paul claims a fight against Conor McGregor would be the biggest selling PPV of all-time

Jake Paul believes that a bout with UFC star Conor McGregor would be the best-selling pay-per-view of all-time.

Since stepping into the professional boxing arena, the 25-year-old has become one of the most talked about figures in the sport. 

The YouTuber is unbeaten in his five professional fights - winning four of them by way of knockout.

Paul is currently promoting Amanda Serrano's historic undisputed title fight with Katie Taylor, but will return to fighting himself once his promotional duties are over.

Speaking during the Serrano vs Taylor press conference, he said: "I'm mainly focused on promoting this fight for April 30 but after, I want to get a fight in this year.

"I don't know who it's going to be, I don't know when and I certainly don't know where. But I have a lot of unfinished business with a lot of people."

Paul was scheduled to fight Tommy Fury - the half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury - last December, but due to medical issues, the 22-year-old was forced to pull out.

Instead, the American took on Tyron Woodley in a rematch and came out victorious after knocking the former UFC Welterweight champion out in the sixth round.

When asked about a future fight with Fury, Paul revealed that he isn't interested in Englishman until he proves himself against a worthy opponent.

Paul said: "He's got to go take a fight and put on an impressive performance to make me care again. I think he should fight Woodley if he's not scared. Or someone along those lines.

"But yeah, I just don't really care about that guy anymore."

One fight which Paul believes would make a lot of business sense is a potential bout with Conor McGregor.

"I think it would be the biggest PPV ever," said Paul. "Five million for sure… easily, it's gotta be."

The Irishman was last in action against Dustin Poirier in July 2021 during UFC 264. His only boxing fight came in a losing effort against Floyd Mayweather back in 2017.
