Pimblett defeated Luigi Vendramini in his latest UFC outing on Saturday night, and has threatened to stop Jake Paul in a potential boxing showdown after the YouTube star’s victory over Tyron Woodley
Paddy Pimblett has offered to knock out Jake Paul in a boxing match, after he defeated Luigi Vendramini in his UFC debut on Saturday night.
Paul defeated Tyron Woodley in his fifth professional contest last weekend, and faced the sternest test of his career coming through a fourth round scare to win by split decision.
And the YouTube star has been linked with a number of names in the wake of his victory including Tommy Fury and a potential rematch with the former UFC champion.
Pimblett has called for Paul to take him on in the boxing ring in the future, labelling the YouTube star a “sausage” while threatening to “beat him up”.
“He’s a sausage. I’d fight him tomorrow, and I’d beat him up,” Pimblett told MMA Crazy. “I f**king would. Save the embarrassment, and then you can get a tattoo done over.”
Pimblett also stated that he didn’t “waste his time” watching the bout between Paul and Woodley, but believes that Woodley should have stopped the fight in the fourth stanza.
“No, I don’t waste my time watching sh** like that”, Pimblett continued. “The only thing I’ve seen is where Woodley catches him with a punch and nearly knocks him out.
“I’ve heard from a few people that Woodley got robbed. But it’s one of their minutes. You need to finish people like that, or you’ll get robbed.”
Paul has reiterated his plans to become a world champion in the aftermath of his victory over Woodley, but wants to continue bringing UFC stars over to the boxing ring.
And the YouTube star has called for currently injured star Conor McGregor, who his coach BJ Flores has also cited as a “top” potential opponent for the American.
“I’d like Conor, he needs a win right? You think Jake’s an easy win, here we are bro,” Flores told Mirror Fighting .
“I’m looking at it from the flip side, but we’re ready for that any time, so we’ll see, I think Tyron’s a tougher fight than Conor in the boxing ring, I really do.
“There’s a lot of good guys out there that Jake could fight but the profile has to be right for Jake.”
Paul appeared to set up a clash with British light-heavyweight Fury, after he appeared on the undercard of Paul’s clash with Woodley defeating Anthony Taylor.
And the 22-year-old has called for Paul to stop “using his name” and take him on next as was originally plotted.
“It should be the main man himself (Paul),” Fury said. “That’s why they [Showtime] have got me over here in the first place.
“We’ll see… I think they’re trying to prolong the fight as long as they can because everybody knows he’s not ready, it’s a big step up for him.
“But don’t have me on your undercard, promoting and using my name if you’re not ready to fight.
“He’s never going to be ready to face me, so he might as well get it over with, but look I don’t know, it is what it is.
“He’s doing his thing, he’s had three or four fights now, he’s talking a good game so let’s back it up and get in there!”
