JAKE PAUL wants Conor McGregor to ‘go crazy and lose his s***’ and vowed to ‘beat him up’ in a boxing match.

McGregor lost control after sustaining a horror leg break in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier in July.

The Irishman threatened to KILL Poirier and goaded that his rival’s wife was messaging him privately on Instagram.

YouTuber Paul plans to leave McGregor in a similar meltdown if they ever eventually share the ring together.

He told MMAFighting: “He sort of lost that spunk, and I think that people are kind of second-guessing him.

“He’s not the same Conor, that’s for sure. It’s not as interesting. However, I would still just like to beat him up.

“I would want him to freak out in the ring and go crazy and lose his s***.

“I think it would be funny to see him break down, like how he did against Dustin Poirier. And by the way, it’s still a massive fight.”

McGregor, 33, beat Poirier, 32, in 2014 but was knocked out in the rematch in January.

The trilogy bout then ended in chaos as he broke his tibia seconds before the end of round one.

McGregor was therefore beaten by doctor stoppage, his third in four UFC fights.

But Paul, who is 3-0 as a boxer all by knockout, is still interested in fighting the UFC poster boy, despite the losing streak.

He said: “Regardless of what anybody wants to say about Conor, you have to respect him for what he’s done, becoming the face of the fight game.

“I don’t hate the guy. Do I like him? No but you have to respect him. All I’ve said though is I want to fight him and knock him out.

“Because A) it would be a big fight, big business and B) give the people what they want.

“That’s one of the most talked about fights to happen in the past year.

“I think it still makes sense regardless if he’s winning or losing, people want to see that.”

Paul, 24, faces ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, in his fourth and toughest fight to date on August 29.

He already has wins over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and most recently retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren.

His viral KO wins of Robinson and Askren, both 37, featured on pay-per-views which sold over 1million buys.

Paul said: “That’s why my career is just different. It’s such a unique situation.

“No fighter in the history of the sport has sold this many pay-per-views and had this much attention at 3-0.

“I’m building my career differently all while still challenging myself and trying to become the biggest prizefighter in the world.”
