Jake Paul called out by 19st WWE star Drew McIntyre for fight as YouTube star prepares for Tommy Fury showdown

JAKE PAUL has been called out by WWE superstar Drew McIntyre – who has challenged the YouTuber to meet him inside the ring.

Paul has made huge waves in the boxing world over the last 18 months, so much so he bagged back-to-back fights against former UFC champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

Paul is currently gearing up for a grudge match with Tommy Fury

Paul’s ability to cause outrage in the boxing community has impressed many, including two-time WWE champ McIntyre.

The Scot told talkSPORT: “Jake Paul is a foe of everybody I guess. He gets it.

“So few people are willing to be true bad guys and make the public pay to see them get beat and he is a true bad guy.

“Whenever I see him show up at these events and the whole crowd starts booing him, I’m like ‘wow, that’s pretty cool.’

“He is basically the number one heel in the world so if he wants to swing by WWE and get Claymored in the face, that’s just fine with me!”

McIntyre sees similarities between Paul’s approach to the fight game and that of ‘The Greatest’, Muhammad Ali.

He added: “It’s like Muhammad Ali back in the day.

“Everyone just remembers the good parts and how great he was, but if you remember in the beginning of Ali’s career, he was playing the heel and taking inspiration from WWE.”

Problem Child Paul is gearing up for a grudge match with bitter rival Tommy Fury on December 18.

The social media sensation goes into the showdown as a huge underdog but is adamant he’ll shock the world and beat the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson Fury.

He said: “I will TKO him in the later rounds.

“He hasn’t had a fight past four rounds so I think he’ll be gassed.

“I think this will be the first time he’s getting punched in the face by someone who can actually hit and is the same weight as him.

“He’s always fought smaller guys with losing records. So I think he’s going to fade. I know he’s going to fade.”
