YouTuber and boxing superstar Jake Paul has finally confirmed when he’s returning to the ring, but his opponent remains a mystery – despite links to several UFC stars. 

In recent months, Jake Paul has made it known that he wants to drive up fighter pay in boxing and UFC, taking on Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Dana White publicly on the matter.

While Dana has previously confirmed that Jake rejected an offer to compete in the octagon, it hasn’t stopped the content creator from putting several former champions on his radar.

Conor McGregor can’t stop talking about him at the moment, following several troll MMA videos aimed at the Irishman, and even Jake’s big brother Logan Paul has predicted Nate Diaz could be his next opponent.

While it’s unclear who Jake Paul’s next opponent will be — as he’s been calling out fighters left and right — KSI’s boxing trainer notably claimed the UK rapper was set to take on a bout this August, as well.

YouTubers Logan Paul & KSI faced off for the final time on November 9. KSI won by split-decision – but he’s got his eyes on Jake Paul, next.

KSI, however, has denied knowing exactly when he’s returning to the ring, despite rumors that suggest he’s set to fight Alex Wassabi and Austin McBroom. That doesn’t mean fans aren’t eyeing a possible bout between Jake Paul and KSI, though, after the two have made no bones about wanting to fight for the past two years.
