Jake Paul has been making a lot of noise in the boxing world over the last two years and it looks like the YouTuber isn’t going away anytime soon.

The Problem Child boasts a 4-0 professional record thanks to wins against AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and most recently, Tyron Woodley.

Paul is set to return to the ring fairly soon, but who will his next opponent be? A number of names have been linked with a potential bout, but it looks like one man is leading the race at the moment.

Jake Paul: Who is the Problem Child’s next opponent?

Paul has been linked with fights with the likes of Conor McGregor, Anderson Silva and even Jorge Masvidal in recent weeks, but it looks like Tyson Fury’s younger brother, Tommy, is the chosen one.

TMZ reported recently that Fury is ready to accept Paul’s latest contract offer. He has even claimed that the YouTuber will be ‘leaving on a stretcher’ once he’s done with him.

“Get that sent over to my lawyers ASAP, right now, we’ll get that looked at and sorted because there’s not a chance in hell you’re winning this fight. You’re leaving on a stretcher. You’re getting knocked spark out and you know it. Get it over to me now,” Fury said.

A contract hasn’t been signed just yet, but it does look imminent at this point. If everything’s agreed, Fury will be the first professional boxer Paul will face in his career, and it will surely not be as easy as his previous bouts.

What has Tyson Fury said?

Tyson is the crown jewel of the Fury family. He is undoubtedly the best boxer in the world at the moment and he too has urged Jake and Tommy to sort things out and get in the ring.

He told TMZ earlier this month: “The fight is supposed to be happening. Both guys keep talking about it, so they better step up and show some b*lls and actually do the fight.

“I’m sick of all the talk about a fight that doesn’t happen, so let’s get it on! Let these 2 go to war. Put on a show for the fans. Everybody wants to see it!”

The Gypsy King even confirmed that he’ll be at the event if Paul and his younger brother agree to fight. Nothing’s confirmed just yet, but it does look like it’s only a matter of time before everything’s agreed.
