Jake Paul has claimed he is 'tired' of beating up old MMA fighters, following his latest call out. During his short boxing career, Paul has fought against UFC stars Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley – twice – and most recently Anderson Silva.
And it seems another MMA fighter has the American YouTuber in their sights, after Paul was called out by Donald Cerrone. UFC man Cerrone recently revealed per MMA Fighting that the big money surrounding the YouTuber and his bouts makes an offer to fight him impossible to turn down.
He said: "Everyone is wanting to fight him, and I don’t see why they wouldn’t because that’s a big money fight… Would I like to fight him? F**k, of course.

"How could I say no to f*****g millions of dollars. So I would definitely go out there and do it." Paul has since responded to Cerrone's comments, but the 25-year-old was quick to rubbish off the chances of the fight happening.
Speaking to fellow YouTuber 'The Schmo', Paul was asked if he would entertain the UFC star's callout, to which he responded: "Interesting [a fight against Cerrone]. I mean I don’t know, I’m kind of tired of beating these old dudes up like that.
"You know what I’m saying? So, I’m just trying to get someone in there who is younger. But they’re all scared, honestly. They’re just trying to protect their records.” One fight that has been on the cards for some time for Paul is one with Tommy Fury.
The pair have built up something of a rivalry over social media, and have been lined up to fight twice already but both have been cancelled. The first fight was pulled due to an injury to Fury, before the Englishman was denied entry to the USA for the rearranged date.

Despite the setbacks it does seem that the chances of the long overdue fight happening in 2023 are increasing. As a result the promoter of Love Island star Fury, Frank Warren, has confirmed both sides are keen to get the fight organised. He told iFL TV: "Both sides are really eager to making it happen and I don’t think we’re far off getting it on.
"It’s a life changing money fight for [Tommy] and obviously he wants it. It was on, then he couldn’t get into the States which was a problem. But we’ll get it on, we’re really determined to make it happen. All sides are really good on getting it over the line. We will get it over the line.”
