CONOR McGREGOR was warned his career will ‘come to a tumbling stop’ if he fights Jake Paul.

YouTuber Paul has continued to target a boxing match with McGregor, who was beaten on his ring debut against Floyd Mayweather in 2017.

The social media sensation is currently 3-0, all by knockout, and faces his biggest challenge to date in ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, next.

Former two-weight UFC king McGregor, 33, and boxing’s current pound-for-pound No1 were recently named on Paul’s ‘hit-list’ of opponents.

And while his trainer BJ Flores admitted Mexican superstar Canelo is deemed not up for discussion, the UFC’s top talent are.

Flores told The W.A.D.E Concept: “Canelo Alvarez is not on our radar, but I like Jake’s enthusiasm for believing he can beat the big names.

“But Conor he better not fight Jake I will tell you that now. His career will come to a tumbling stop if he fights him, I guarantee that.

“But there is plenty of other MMA fights and names that would probably give Jake a better fight.

“We will see which name makes sense for Jake including some pretty big names in MMA, I don’t go easy on Jake.”

Jake Paul’s boxing ‘hit-list’

McGregor flirted with a return to the ring, last year entering negotiations with Manny Pacquiao.

But after he was knocked out in January by Dustin Poirier – the man he initially beat in 2014 – talks with Pacquiao, 42, collapsed.

McGregor, 33, then lost his trilogy bout with Poirier, 32, after suffering a horror leg break seconds before the first round ended.

He has since undergone surgery and is already training but will need to complete his six-month medical suspension.

Meanwhile Paul, who has wins over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, returns to the ring on the weekend.
