And the Problem Child – who has won both of his fights inside the squared circle – has also set his sights on fights with KSI and Dillon Danis.

But the American is desperate to pit his wits against McGregor, who returns to the octagon in January to face Dustin Poirier in a rematch.

Commenting on a potential dust-up against the Irishman, Paul told TMZ Sports: “My team is talking to his manager but that’s all I’ll say.”

Before adding: “No other fighter with this big of a platform is calling out McGregor.

“My dogs have more followers than the guy he’s fighting in January.”

Paul then insisted it’s a matter of ‘if’ and not ‘when’ he and McGregor come to blows inside the ring.

He stated: “It’s gonna be legendary.

“I’m gonna win, too! That’s what I want people to understand!

“I’m gonna dedicate my life to winning that fight because I’m not going in there just to say I did it — I’m going in there to f*** Conor McGregor up.”

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn believes that a fight between Paul and McGregor would be more competitive than when the UFC star battled Floyd Mayweather.

Speaking to Sirius XM Boxing, the Matchroom boss said: “I think it’s reasonably competitive, especially with the weight difference.

“Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is a lot more competitive than Conor vs Floyd Mayweather.”
