JAKE PAUL claims he would ‘kick Conor McGregor’s a***’ in the boxing ring – but admitted he is terrified of Mike Tyson.

YouTube sensation Paul returns to the ring this weekend with a fight against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson.

Jake Paul admitted he is terrified of Mike Tyson

McGregor is making his UFC return in January and Paul is adamant he has the beating of the Irish fighter.

Paul told BT Sport Boxing: “These MMA guys go to practice every day and have to spend their whole day on one thing – elbows, knees, grappling, take downs so there’s a lot they have to work on.

“But I’ve been going into the gym for the past three years and all I’ve been focusing on is boxing, so come over into my arena and you’re going to get your a** beat.

“Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor will happen. People think that’s crazy and Jake’s going to get his a** kicked but we’ll see.”

Tyson makes his long-awaited comeback on Saturday in an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr in Los Angeles but Paul is steering clear of challenging the infamous heavyweight to a fight.

Paul expects Iron Mike to be too powerful for his opponent although claims Jones Jr’s best chance is to prolong the fight.

Paul said: “I think Mike is so powerful and that power is just going to shock Roy especially with them being a lot older.

How Jake Paul and Nate Robinson compare ahead of their fight

“You can’t take as many punches like that. I think Mike wins in the second round.

“If it goes into the later rounds Roy could potentially come back and win on points just because he has that speed and that distance control.”

Paul is facing Robinson with the former NBA star making his boxing debut on the undercard of Tyson’s fight.
