Jake Paul has listed a bunch of reasons why he thinks he could beat Conor McGregor.
The YouTuber has long been angling for a fight with The Notorious but as yet he hasn't managed to make it happen.
Well, the 24-year-old has now come out and shared his thoughts on why he is so confident in his ability to knock out the UFC legend.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: "First and foremost I'm a better athlete than McGregor.
"He never played football, he never played lacrosse, he never wrestled, he was never an All-State football player.
"I'm taller by four inches or so and I'm about 60 pounds, 50 pounds heavier without a weight cut.
"And that's what a lot of people don't understand when I'm hitting these guys - I've got knockout power because I'm cutting down from 210lbs.
"The other side of this is him underestimating me.
"He's going to come into this, be chilling on his yachts, be babysitting his three little kids, be going out to dinners with his wife, playing in the beach in the sand, thinking Jake Paul's a walk in the park.
"When I'm going to be hustling every single day to beat this guy."
This comes after the UFC boss Dana White confirmed that he would not work with either Paul or his brother Logan, who is set to fight undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Speaking to ESPN, White said he will not entertain the possibility of having one of his fighters getting in the ring with the pair.
He said: "First of all, I would never do business with those guys, just no.
"No, this is not what we do. I'm not gonna f***ing loan them a guy - for f**ing what? There's no way. You got plenty of f***ing goofballs out there that you can muster up to get in there and play these games that these guys are playing.
"Yeah, I'm not your guy."
Speaking about Paul's victory over former ONE Welterweight Champion Ben Askren last month, White added: "Listen, you cannot deny the fact that this kid has inserted himself into the conversation with real guys.
"This guy has got three fights, and I gotta tell you that I don't know if I truly believe the Ben Askren thing. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that.
"Let's see how long it takes before this kid's 15 minutes are up, but they are being smart. They are keeping him away from anybody that could actually really do damage. I don't know. The Ben Askren thing still blows my mind."
