The Latvian is 28-1 in his professional career.

His only defeat came against Anthony Joshua’s conqueror Oleksandr Usyk back in 2018.

Briedis now wants to face YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul in a lucrative bout.

And he’s even been willing to ink his body to try and do so.

The experienced fighter has shown off a new tattoo featuring Jake’s name on social media.

It reads ‘Jake’s Bad Karma’ and runs down his left thigh.

The tattoo also features an angry looking bull with red eyes.

As he got it inked, Briedis recorded himself calling Paul out.

When the camera zoomed in on his thigh, Briedis said: “Hey Jake, I’ve got something for you.

“Jake, now it’s your turn.”

This isn’t the first time that Briedis has called out the Problem Child.

Back in May his agent Kaller Sauerland offered Paul, 24, a shot at his client’s belts.

He wrote on Twitter: “Hey Jake Paul – happy to arrange you taking a shot at Mairis Briedis’ belts, only condition if you lose you have to leave boxing… Deal?”

Tommy Fury is still determined to be Paul’s next opponent after having to pull out of their scheduled bout last month with injury.

But Paul has teased a move to MMA, posting a clip of himself practising leg kicks while tagging Bellator and PFL.
