Jake Paul: McGregor fight 'bound to happen'

Jake Paul sees himself stepping into the boxing ring against Conor McGregor in the future.

The YouTube star is scheduled to face former NBA player Nate Robinson at the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. event Saturday. He thinks, with a few more victories, a megafight against former UFC two-division champion McGregor will be "undeniable."

"There's no other fighter with as big of a platform as me that's calling him out right now," Paul told CBS Sports. "He wants to fight Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao will destroy him. It will be another embarrassing night for him, just like when he got embarrassed by Floyd (Mayweather).

"So, Jake Paul versus Conor McGregor is bound to happen. I know he's seen these interviews, I know he's seen the shit talk. It's gonna happen."

Paul, the brother of Logan Paul, made his boxing debut in January against fellow internet personality Ali Eson Gib and won via first-round TKO.

McGregor is scheduled to face Dustin Poirier in the UFC 257 main event Jan. 23.
