Jake Paul is rather cold on the idea of a fight with Conor McGregor because he doesn’t want to fight “losers.” Paul appeared on FOX Sports’ Undisputed show as he prepares to box Tyron Woodley in a match set for August 29th, and was asked about the idea of a match with McGregor.

“Jake Paul vs. Conor McGregor would be one of the biggest pay-per-views in the history of boxing,” Paul said (per Bleacher Report). “But look, man. I don’t wanna fight losers. The guy keeps on losing. His act is being exposed.”

Paul’s comments come after McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 following his lower leg breaking at the end of the first round. McGregor has now lost three of his last four fights, but has vowed he will be back. Paul also took McGregor to task for his post-fight comments toward Poirier and his wife, telling TMZ Sports, “He’s a piece of s**t. He’s sitting there on the ground after losing, talking s*** to Dustin Poirier’s wife. I don’t feel bad at all … I think he’s an evil man, and he had what was coming for him.”

Paul has a professional boxing record of 3-0, with wins over YouTuber AnEsonGib, NBA alum Nate Robinson, and UFC alum Ben Askren.
