JAKE PAUL has claimed he has sold over $150MILLION in pay-per-view buys as he hit back at Conor McGregor.

The YouTuber-turned boxer originally called out McGregor in a fight he believes is worth $200m – or £170m.

But McGregor, 33, responded on Twitter: “You’ve 2 fights and done 70k buys. You are a flop, kid. A nobody.”

Paul, 25, was quick to respond and in a brutal video claimed he made $15m alone in his last fight and has sold three million career PPV sales.

He added: “Here’s another fun fact, in your 18th fight, you made $150,000. In my fifth fight, I made $15million.

“You wanna talk about pay-per-view buys? Nate Robinson, 1.8million, Ben Askren, 500,000, Tyron Woodley 500,000.

“Tyron Woodley 2 – no one even wanted to see that fight – and we got 200,000 pay-per-view buys.

“In the last five years you’ve had ZERO pay-per-view buys because you don’t f***ing fight.”

Paul’s professional debut was a first-round win over online rival “AnEsonGib” on sports streaming service DAZN.

His second was against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, on Mike Tyson’s comeback undercard.

His following two wins over former MMA champions Askren, 37, and Woodley, 40, were headlined by Paul himself.

And he was forced to rematch Woodley last December after Tommy Fury, 23, pulled out with a rib injury.

The celebrity pair rescheduled for August 6 in New York but again Fury was withdrawn amid a US visa issue.
