Paul is now 3-0 in his short boxing career but is certainly not shy in mixing it up with the big boys.

And once he is done with former UFC champ Woodley, he is eager to get one star to bite.

Diaz fights Leon Edwards this weekend but Paul wants to ensure he’s next in the queue so that he can land his dream scrap with Conor McGregor.

Speaking to ESPN in April, the 24-year-old said: “I think people will immediately write me off but they’re going to tune into watch.

“It’s two massive names and it’s a massive pay-per-view.

“When people see me obliterate [Diaz], their jaws are going to drop, they’re not going to know how to react and they’re going to think it’s rigged again.

“At that moment in time, I’ll be undeniable to fight Conor McGregor because I beat the guy who beat him.

“The Jake Paul vs Conor fight is a massive fight so I’m like why wait? I don’t need to be in this sport forever, I don’t need 100 fights so why wait, let’s do it right away.”

Paul has even called out UFC welterweight king Kamaru Usman after he demolished Jorge Masvidal.

Usman is on a growing list of fighters name-dropped by Paul including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Daniel Cormier.

Tommy Fury is also on the agenda after a feud began when WBC champ Tyson Fury implored Paul to take on his younger brother.

Since then the pair have trash talked each other over social media and they are both keen to face one another in the ring.
