YouTuber Jake Paul has said negotiations are underway for him to fight Conor McGregor in a boxing match and warned: “I'm going in there to f**k Conor McGregor up."

The 23-year-old American who defeated former NBA star Nate Robinson over the weekend said his team already started speaking to McGregor’s camp over arranging a showdown.

"My team is talking to his manager but that's all I'll say," Jake told TMZ.

"No other fighter with this big of a platform is calling out McGregor. My dogs have more followers than the guy he's fighting in January."

McGregor’s next fight is against Dustin Poirier in the UFC but Paul says he’s definitely going to get in the ring with McGregor.

"It's gonna be legendary. I'm gonna win, too! That's what I want people to understand. I'm gonna dedicate my life to winning that fight because I'm not going in there just to say I did it -- I'm going in there to f**k Conor McGregor up."

McGregor has only fought in one professional boxing match - his defeat to Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2017.
