He said: “I love playing the bag guy role. I’m the Triple H of boxing. I like being the bad guy, I like hearing the boos.

“I’ve been hearing boos all my life so you get used to it. I’ve never really had people cheer for me like that.

“But I’m here and ready to go when Chalmers needs me.”

Taylor has acted as Paul’s sparring partner in two of the YouTuber star’s training camps.

It has also afforded him a spot on his last two undercards but the former MMA lightweight suffered defeat both times.

Whereas Paul, 25, beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 40, on points and then by knockout in their rematch.

Taylor has now called out Woodley himself as both stand winless in the boxing ring.
