After the fight between Paul and Woodley, one legend has made it abundantly clear that he wants his time in the ring with the up incoming boxer, Jake Paul.
It is obvious that McGregor is licking his chops after what transpired in the ring between Paul and Woodley on Sunday night. In the eyes of Paul, however, McGregor isn’t even on the same level as the guy he just defeated.
Paul responded with a rather harsh assessment of his potential challenger. “I’m five wins in a row, he’s 1-3 in the past four years. So the guy needs to get off his vodka or whatever his brand is, sober up and start to get back in the gym and then we can [expletive] fight.”
After a haymaker response, Jake Paul delved deeper into why McGregor isn’t on the level of Woodley who just lost to him less than an hour before.
“To be honest, no way he hits harder than Woodley. He doesn’t weigh as much as Woodley. He’s shorter than Woodley. I’ve said it before the fight, I think Woodley is a harder fight than him, especially the way he’s going. Conor is going down, I’m going up. Woodley came in game, we’ll see.”
Less than a year ago, Paul didn’t have the credentials to be talking about these fighters and their professions. In the last year, however, Paul has defeated whoever has decided to step into the ring. Jake Paul is backing up his talk by walking the walk. McGregor, on the other hand, hasn’t had very much success at all in the octagon in recent years.
These two fighters are heading in two different directions. That might be for the best with Paul looking better with each fight and McGregor showing chinks in his armor. If McGregor wants this fight with Paul, he’ll need to earn his respect, respect that Paul is consequently earning every time he steps into the ring.
