Jake Paul says he’d absolutely love his next boxing match to come against Jorge Masvidal

Paul believes there’s a real possibility for the two to meet inside the ring.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Jake Paul is on the hunt for his next fight and is now looking towards MMA’s Jorge Masvidal as a potential opponent, with Paul calling him out during an Instagram live feed, with some reporters later catching up with Paul to specifically ask about his thoughts on fighting Masvidal.

“Jorge, got some millions for you to fight,” Paul said. “Is your daddy gonna let you come out, is your daddy gonna let you come out and play, daddy Dana? Fuckin’ bitch, if he ever lets you out of that contract I’m baptizing the fuck outta you.”

On Masvidal’s prediction for Tyron Woodley to beat him up when they fought

“I wasn’t surprised by Masvidal, he has the same managers as Woodley and the guy’s kind of an airhead. Like let’s be honest, Masvidal’s not smart. Does anybody here listen to a Masvidal interview and go ‘wow that guy’s an intellectual and he’s a smart guy’?...he’s a street fighter gangster who got knocked the fuck out in his last fight, so maybe he’s losing a couple brain cells.

“I would love to fight Masvidal. I think it can very much so happen.”

On why Masvidal changed from being a supporter of his boxing to being critical of his ability

“Hoes will be hoes. Bitches will be bitches. If you want to switch up — at one moment he’s my friend, texting me ‘yo let’s train, let’s do a video together, can you come to my bakery down the street’...and then all the sudden you want to switch up? Cool. That’s now how I was raised, not here in Ohio. If I’m your friend, I’m your friend, but if he wants to switch up, hoes will be hoes.”
