Jake Paul has told Carl Froch to face Anderson Silva and then step in the ring with him after recent comments from the Brit.
Froch told Boxing Social that Paul would never target him because he would never call out ‘a professional fighter’, and also insinuated that some of his opponents in the past have taken dives.
Paul – who is now 6-0 in the boxing ring against people who specialise in other sports or disciplines – caught wind of the former super middleweight champion’s comments and responded with a two-fight offer whilst bringing finances into the conversation.
“Carl Froch mad because I made more in 1 year than he made his whole career. You want the payday. I get it.
So let’s do this, fight Anderson Silva on my next card and if you get lucky and beat him, then we can step in the ring and you make your career payday. Let me know.”

Paul fought Silva in October of 2022, knocking the MMA legend down on the way to a decision victory. He clearly feels that Froch would struggle to do the same.
It’s not the first dig Froch has had at the American, in fact, he finds an opportunity for one whenever he’s asked about him.
He once ripped up a sheet of paper with Paul’s name on it because he didn’t deserve to be mentioned alongside pro boxers, calling him a ‘clown’ and a ‘ponce.’
‘The Cobra’ has also claimed in the past that he would beat both Jake and his brother Logan in the same night after just some light training. Well, despite being retired, there’s now a bonafide offer to do so.
Paul returns to the ring against Tommy Fury on Sunday February 26 in Saudi Arabia – a fight which Froch is backing Fury to do the business.
