BOXING promoter Eddie Hearn has thrown his support behind Jake Paul fighting Conor McGregor.

Just moments after he annihilated former basketball star Nate Roninson at the weekend, Paul called out the UFC legend for a boxing scrap.

Jake Paul seemingly wants to fight everyone after his second pro boxing win

It would be a real battle of the novices. Paul has only had two fights, winning both by KO while McGregor has had one – a KO loss to Floyd Mayweather.

But Hearn seems a fan of the two getting it on in the ring.

Speaking to Sirius XM Boxing, the Matchroom boss said: “I think it’s reasonably competitive, especially with the weight difference.

“Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is a lot more competitive than Conor vs Floyd Mayweather.”

YouTube sensation Paul moved to 2-0 after obliterating former Robinson with a brutal second-round KO.

Ahead of the fight, Paul had made headlines for claiming he would ‘kick Conor McGregor’s a***’ in the boxing ring.

And the internet star doubled down on the claims after knocking out Robinson by calling out the UFC superstar and his teammate Dillon Danis.

Paul has also set his sights on avenging his brother Logan’s defeat to rival KSI but admitted he fancied his chances against his sibling as well.

Eddie Hearn think Conor McGregor vs Jake Pual would be ‘competitive’

Speaking in his post-fight interview, the YouTube star said: “I’ve been training my ass off for the past year. I’m taking this seriously.

“There’s a long list of opponents that I want — Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis. I’m going to knock them both out.

“There’s my brother, KSI on the line, Austin McBroom. I want to be in this sport for a long time. I’m in love with it so why not?”

McGregor is making his grand return to UFC in January, rematching against Dustin Poirier.
