JAKE PAUL could get the chance to fight an unbeaten Hall of Fame world champion.

The YouTuber-turned prizefighter is 6-1 in his career, having lost for the first time in February to Tommy Fury, 24, in Saudi Arabia.

Jake Paul lost to Tommy Fury

It was the first time the 26-year-old faced an opponent with a prior professional boxing record.

Now, he returns on August 5 in Texas against ex-UFC star Nate Diaz, 38, who is will be making his ring debut.

But Diaz was a once sparring partner of American legend Andre Ward, who retired in 2017 undefeated in 32 bouts.

The 2021 Hall of Famer revealed he could be tempted out of retirement for a fight against Paul – having tried to do so before.

Ward, 39, told The MMA Hour: “My manager James Prince, one of his sons is real close to Jake Paul.

“And my induction weekend, Prince reached out to his son and said, ‘Aye man, let Jake know I wanted to see if something was there.’

“And we never heard back. And that’s not a slight on Jake Paul, I’m not chasing Jake Paul.”

Fans were left fearing for Diaz after footage emerged of the American hitting pads in training.

But Ward – who reigned at super-middle and light-heavyweight – warned not to count the MMA veteran out.

He said: “People look at that mitt session that they had and they just misread the play, man, [because] those type of shots, they don’t look pretty, but they keep coming.

“They keep coming from different angles and he’s got some miles on him. He’s been around a long time.

“[Diaz has] to show that he can take the shot from Jake Paul, because Jake has a natural right hand, it’s got power on it.

“So if he can take that right hand from Jake Paul, it’s gonna be a tougher fight than people realise, man, because Nate’s going to keep coming.”
