Less than one week after knocking out Tyron Woodley in Florida, Jake Paul is already looking toward the future. Fight News has reported that Paul and Most Valuable Promotions are eyeing a fight with former middleweight champion Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. The two parties are still ironing out the particulars, but Caesar Chavez Jr. appears to be interest in fighting the young boxer.
“They offered me one to three million dollars, plus PPV. I have a name, I’m a former world champion, so I made it clear that it has to be a 50/50 split for me to take the fight,” Caesar Chavez Jr. told Fight News.
If Paul is unable to fight Chavez Jr. in early 2022, he has also expressed an interest in other opponents. Following his knockout victory against Woodley, Paul called out UFC fighters Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz.
“Y’all are some bitches for leaving this arena. I know you don’t want that sh*t I’ll take out both of y’all next. Get out of your contracts with daddy Dana. I’mma f*ck them up too,” Paul told Masvidal and Diaz last weekend.
While Paul is interested in a potential fight, Masvidal is not enticed to make the transition from MMA to boxing. He said the monetary offer that Paul put forth is “chump change.” As for Diaz, he has not issued an official response to Paul’s offer.
