Jake Paul is taking one after another shot at Conor Mcgregor, and he’s not letting go that easily.
The YouTuber-cum-boxer has called out Conor Mcgregor multiple times, starting from offering the UFC icon $50 million to fight him. With no response from the Irish mixed martial artist, Jake took it to next level, from mimicking McGregor to calling him a “chicken.”
And now, the 24-year-old has taken the mockery to the air- flying an aeroplane over Miami Beach with a banner that read: “Conor McGregor is scared of Jake Paul.”
Jake a clip of the same on Instagram, with the caption that read: “Damn Conor… the whole world is starting to realize it…”
Jake Paul’s latest mockery followed suit just after McGregor affirmed his return to the squared circle.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, who lost to Floyd Mayweather in his only professional boxing bout three years back, assures to don the sparring gloves this year and has confirmed a fight with WBA (Super) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao aka “PacMan”.
“I’m hearing there’s a contract and all coming… it’s that close. We haven’t (spoken) but it should happen in 2021,” McGregor spoke exclusively to Sportsnet’s Arash Madani. (H/T BoxingScene)

Hate me or love me, you can’t stop me: Jake Paul has a clear message to his critics
Jake Paul, who has a 2-0 record in boxing, made debut as a pugilist last year January. His first 6-round bout was against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in Miami, where he clinched a 1st round TKO win.
He made headlines last November after a vicious KO to former NBA star Nate Robinson at the Staples Center as the undercard of the famed super exhibition fight between former boxing champions Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr.
Jake’s next fight takes place at rapper Snoop Dogg’s ‘The Fight Club’ event on 17th April, although neither the venue nor his opponent has been named yet.
But that has not toppled Jake from his mountain of confidence as he assures a sweeping victory over his unnamed adversary.
“Hate me or love me, you can’t stop me,” Paul was quoted in an official release, “April 17, I headline a global PPV event and I am getting my third knockout in a row. I look to prove to the world that I am and I will remain one of the biggest names in this sport.” (H/T ESPN)
Jake’s older sibling Logan Paul will be seen in action earlier. The 25-year-old, who fought KSI in 2019 November, has a super exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather on 20th February.
