Jake paul He already anticipates what will be his fifth presentation in professional boxing. And options are not lacking.

On August 29, Paul extended his unbeaten 4-0 with a split decision win over Tyron woodley, and with the possibility of a rematch with the increasingly distant former UFC welterweight champion, the 24-year-old influencer has been seriously interested in a crossover with Jorge Masvidal.

"Personally I would love it to be Masvidal," commented Paul in The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani (via MMA Fighting). «Especially because of the shit that has been talked about. By his name. Because he is still in his best moment and because there is a fight in the middle. I just beat your boy, Tyron.

While Masvidal assisted Paul during his preparation for his match with Ben askren, the ex-Disney actor did not take any good that the "BMF" champion leaned towards a victory for Woodley, his former teammate in American Top Team.

Beyond his interest, Paul acknowledged that it would be complex to finalize the fight due to the contractual obligations that have Masvidal tied to UFC.

Hopefully, Dana (White) could release him from his contract, but we're not sure that will happen. I personally think this would be my biggest challenge. The toughest guy and the biggest name. The most relevant today. I think this is the fight that should be made. I think it will happen at some point, but it's the one at the top of my list. "

After being knocked out by the Welterweight Champion, Kamaru usmanIn May, Masvidal hopes to return to the Octagon before the end of the year.
