What Conor McGregor said when quizzed over possibility of fighting Jake Paul

Posted by

Conor McGregor has refused to rule out the possibility of fighting YouTuber Jake Paul in the future.

Paul has been vocal with his attempts to try and lure McGregor back into the boxing ring, but the Irishman has thus far kept the door shut.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC since breaking his leg in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier. A defeat via doctor stoppage handed him his third L in four MMA fights.

With a return to the UFC on the horizon, McGregor’s focus will be on repairing his reputation in the MMA world and getting himself back into the title conversation.

Could Conor McGregor (right) one day return to the boxing ring?

That said, he could be tempted by big-money exhibition bouts in the future. Quoted by the Mirror when quizzed on fighting Paul, McGregor replied: “who knows? Never say never.”

We wouldn’t expect this to materialise any time soon, but further down the line, it’s impossible to rule out McGregor and Paul taking to the boxing ring.
