By Ponciano Melo – After quickly taking care of Ben Askren, YouTube personality and boxer Jake Paul is now looking for a massive paycheck in 2022 against UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
It can be remembered that Paul called out the two-division UFC champion last year, offering $50 million to make it happen.
Now, Paul is eyeing $100 million on their fight with a projected three million pay-per-view sale. It still has many build-ups as McGregor will go for a trilogy with Dustin Poirier in UFC.
Paul thinks highly of their match with McGregor because cash was already insane during his fight with Askren. McGregor is way more attractive to the fans, especially in doing cross sports like what he did in 2015 against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
These people are geniuses for that they put great entertainment and create tremendous interest among fans while earning big money at the same time.
The 2022 date is ideal as McGregor will have his next fight in July. It will give both fighters to adjust and prepare for boxing.
But one thing is for sure. If this will become real, people will dig in like crazy despite knowing these two not on a legitimate pro-boxer level.
