Jake Paul reveals his next boxing fight and it's not Tommy Fury

Paul has claimed he will face a former opponent who has been in the ring with four-division king Canelo Alvarez.

After teasing fans about a possible clash with Tommy Fury - as well as calling out boxing king Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez - Jake Paul has confirmed his next opponent.

Paul is undefeated from four professional bouts, his most recent ending in a split-decision victory win over former MMA star Tyron Woodley.

The Sun had reported Paul was set to face Fury - the younger brother of Tyson Fury - in December but his latest social media post has suggested otherwise.

"7-0 Fury doesn't cut it for my 5th fight," Paul wrote on Twitter. "I'm fighting either Hector Lopez or Javier Martinez next!!

"Hector was 'Tanks' 8th opponent, came in 0-0 and retired 0-1. Hector was an MMAer who was 2-0. Javier was Canelo's 10th opponent, entered the fight 0-0 and retired at 0-1."

Paul's other three wins in the ring all ended inside the distance. Ben Askren and AnEnson Gib in the first round while he dispatched ex-NBA player Nate Robinson in the second.

He had previously taunted Canelo and MMA superstar Conor McGregor, offering the latter $100million to fight him.

Regardless of whether McGregor was interested in the fight or not, contractually he is not allowed unless UFC boss Dana White gives him the green light.

Another MMA fighter linked to taking on Paul is Jorge Masvidal - a former world title challenger in the UFC.

Masvidal has the same issue as McGregor in not being able to fight him but the American admitted he is interested in getting a 'quick paycheck'.

"And when I'm done defeating world-class fighters, this bum will still be around - I'll go cash a quick paycheck for hitting him so f*****g hard in front of everyone," Masvidal said recently.

"Those kinds of options will always be there. But right now, when I'm in my prime, I have to do things that people in their prime do, and that's fighting the best in the world. He is not in that conversation."
