YouTuber Jake Paul unleashed his rant to social media in the hope to lure UFC superstar Conor McGregor to step inside the boxing ring with him.
Paul, who is now 2-0 in boxing, called the 0-1 McGregor scared after offering an insane amount of $50 million to make the deal.
“My team sent you a $50 million offer this morning — 50 million cash, proof of funds, the biggest fight offer you’ve ever been offered,” Paul said while impersonating the Irish with the tone, cigar, and flag around him.
“But, you’re scared to fight me, Conor! You’re ducking me because you don’t want to lose to a YouTuber. You’re 0-1 as a boxer. I’m 2-0 as a boxer,” he added.
Paul’s recent knockout victory against former NBA player Nate Robinson went viral, hence, making a boost to his reputation. Not to mention that his brother Logan, who is also a YouTuber, cashed in a fight with the retired Floyd Mayweather Jr. in February next year.
However, the offer claimed by Paul was through his words only. It is not yet confirmed if they sent $50 million or just a show to call his eyed opponent’s attention.
The younger Paul’s timing couldn’t be any better to lure the mixed martial artist, but if they were to fight, it would be in the mid of 2021 as McGregor is set to fight Dustin Poirier.
