UnderGround Forums Jake Paul vs Conor in boxing per Paul

Go to 1:40 to hear Jake talk about it.

Jake has 3.7M twitter followers, his brother has 5.8M on the same platform.

Conor has 8.4M followers for reference. His next UFC opponent, Poirier has 420k followers.

I can for sure see Conor doing something like a boxing match vs Paul just to make insane money and hold a giant event.

If he wants to make a 2021 run at the UFC title I don't see him taking the time to do it but he might do it next time he takes a break from MMA... maybe after winning or losing his next title fight.

I always thought Kimbo Slice was the start of youtube celeb fighters as a trend and not a one-off situation. First there was Kimbo, then the Paul brothers.... I'm honestly surprised more MMA fighters have not used youtube to aid in their quest for fame and fortune in prizefighting. Chael uses it in a great way so that while he might be retired.... he still makes headlines every month.

Jake Paul is the money fight

No way. Danis is possible though. 
 

Conor is happy to make the cash of course, but I think he’s too savvy about the optics. He wants to be able to make claims to greatness, even if many fans/pundits disagree with his arguments. Looking good against Floyd and even Paulie did that, but Jake is a nobody. 
 

The fight would need a very “personal” storyline to justify Conor descending from on high to take on Jake. If Jake bludgeons Danis, that might do it.

This 100%. 
 

if it doesn’t advance Conor’s claim to greatness in combat sports, he won’t do it unless there is an INSANE amount of money involved, then he’d be stupid not to. Conor smokes this kid in the first round. There’s levels to this shit!

I'd love to see this just for the pure insane spectacle of it. Let McGregor carry him around or 2, play with him then decapitate Paul. So much money from all parties could be made.

Conor would demolish Jake in less than 1 minute

If he beats Danis in a boxing match, Mcgregor makes sense.

Paul would wreck conner.

What did he weigh the other night? He looks like he hits hard. But I don't think he can take Connor.

It would look like Pacquiao vs Márquez 4.

Conner is NOT a boxer. He is a decent volume puncher in MMA. That's about it. 

 

Guys please dont get yourselves worked up over this. I feel bad for all of you who continuously allow this little Irish midget to get your hopes up, just to be let down.

Conor is closer to Paul than he is to Manny

Wow...you just compared Kimbo Slice to Jake Paul. 

That’s really uncool..

Jake Paul TKO's Connor quite handily. Connor would be wise to duck this challenge. Jake's size and power will be far too much for him to overcome with his goofy unorthodox movements.

I'd be rooting for Paul if it happened, Conor getting beat by some kid from youtube would be hilarious for at least 3 months.

Yeah, you do know Conor started out as a boxer before he got into MMA right?

 

Paul has nothing for him

Oh come on. You gotta be kidding with this stuff. Look, I understand if you like the guy. He has charisma and he is a exciting volume puncher type. But just because you like the guy doesnt mean you should lie to yourself and talk yourself into believing total fantasies. 

 

It's ok to like a guy, and not think hes amazing at everything he does.
