Jake Paul has once again called out Conor McGregor – and says he’d even be willing to do battle in the Octagon.
Paul took to his official Twitter account to goad McGregor, stating he would beat him with one hand in a boxing ring and, even in the Irishman’s natural habit of the cage, would still knock him out.
“You fight for belts? Last time you fought for a belt was 4 years ago. Lost 3 of your last 4 fights. I would knock you out in the squared circle with one hand tied behind my back.”
“To be fair, in the cage I would need two hands. But same result.”

It’s not the first time ‘The Problem Child’ has called for a fight with McGregor, having repeatedly named the UFC star as being one of the top names on his hit list.
Paul’s win over MMA legend Anderson Silva earlier this year saw him move to 6-0 as a professional boxer, with former McGregor opponent Nate Diaz rumoured to be a potential next opponent. The Ohio native also boasts wins over fellow UFC alumni Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
‘The Notorious’ has only stepped into the professional boxing fray once thus far in a mammoth crossover fight with the legendary Floyd Mayweather back in 2017, in which he was defeated via tenth round stoppage.
McGregor has been out of action entirely for almost 18 months, since his second defeat to Dustin Poirier in which he suffered a severe broken leg.
