Jake Paul is fearful that his upcoming performance against Hasim Rahman Jr will leave Conor McGregor too scared to ever fight him.
Paul has continually attempted to tempt McGregor back into the boxing ring. The Irishman has thus far resisted all approaches from the social media sensation.
After McGregor bit back at Paul on Twitter a few days ago, speculation began to intensify that the fight could actually materialise at some point in time.
Paul is certainly desperate for it to come to fruition, but he’s not convinced that McGregor will want to fight him after he knocks out Hasim Rahman Jr.
Paul is quoted by the Daily Mail saying, “After I knock out Hasim Rahman Jr, Conor will be like, ‘Oh wow, this kid can really fight. That’s probably going to scare him away from fighting me.”
Considering the YouTuber is facing his most dangerous opponent to date, we’re very much intrigued to see how he fairs when he takes to the ring next month.
If he does produce a knockout performance against Rahman Jr, the boxing world will have to give him due credit and consider him an ACTUAL boxer.
