Jake Paul next fight – Fury favourite, Masvidal, KSI, Diaz & McGregor in the mix

TOMMY FURY is favourite to be Jake Paul’s next opponent in the boxing ring, according to bookmakers Ladbrokes.

The pair were scheduled to fight in Tampa, Florida on 18 December but the Briton withdrew because of a bacterial chest infection and a broken rib.

Paul instead took on ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley for the second time in four months, after a points win in August.

The YouTube star ended the rematch in spectacular fashion with a sixth-round knockout — describing it afterwards as ‘the moment’ of his life.

Paul said: “This guy is a legend and respect to him for taking the fight with two weeks’ notice.

“It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had the job done. I was setting the punch up the whole fight. He didn’t see it coming. Like a lumberjack, timber. It’s got to be the moment of my life.”

The victory means Paul has knocked out every opponent he has faced.

And he wasted no time in calling out some of the biggest names in the UFC in Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Kamaru Usman and Conor McGregor.

He said: “Hey Masvidal and Nate Diaz, y’all are some b*****s for leaving this arena.

“Because I know you don’t want that s, I’ll take out both of y’all next. Just get out of your contract with daddy Dana, and I’m going to f*** them up too!

“Please, please let me get Kamaru Usman, let me get Diaz, let me get Masvidal, let me get McGregor because I’m going to embarrass them too.”

Tommy Fury, the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, is the frontrunner at odds of 4/6.

Masvidal is next at 3/1 – although the 37-year-old would rather they fought in the UFC Octagon.

He responded: “Let me tell you a little secret about me – I fight for money or I fight the best in the world. You are neither.

“Come on over to UFC. Sign a one-fight deal. I will break your jaw in front of the whole world. If you want it, it’s here.”

YouTuber KSI, who beat Jake’s older brother Logan, is available at 4/1 with Viddal Riley further behind at 6s.

Nate Diaz and Dillon Danis are locked together at 8/1 with Idris Virgo and Conor McGregor priced at 10/1 and 33/1 respectively.
