Asked who his next opponent could be, Paul told THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas: “Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya, Anderson Silva, Michael Bisping, Tommy Fury, Sonny Williams out of Australia.

“There’s a lot of people on the hitlist and some other names that we’re talking to. Just trying to pick the biggest opponent.

“Everyone I’ve fought I’ve carried the p[promotion, nobody has matched my star power so I’m looking for someone who can match my star power – we might fight in Australia, America or the UAE.

“Oscar, if you’re watching this man get off the couch and start training because we can make this happen.”

Paul has also previously called out Conor McGregor as well as fellow UFC stars Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.

But it appears he has now turned to his attention to former world champion De La Hoya, who is a big fan of the Youtuber.

He claimed Paul is on his way to becoming a world champion himself, calling him “the real deal”.

De La Hoya said: “Let me tell you one thing about Jake Paul, he’s the real deal, I’m going to tell you that.

“With only four or five fights and the way he’s taking it serious, Jake Paul is the real deal.

“And I dare anyone who has boxing experience, who has MMA experience, to call him out because I’ll tell you one thing, this guy can beat a lot of good champions and even maybe great champions.

“So, Jake Paul is taking it serious. This is not a one-off, a two-off, a three-off, no.

“He wants to become a world champion and there’s no other way out of becoming world champion, you have to fight the very best.”
