CLARESSA SHIELDS adds men Jake Paul and Keith Thurman to their ‘boxing bucket’ list – alongside Irish star Katie Taylor.

YouTube star and unbeaten 5-0 boxer Paul raised eyebrows with his five-man wish list of opponents.

Paul named Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez, Conor McGregor, Tyson Fury and UFC President Dana White on his list.

Paul, 24, was included in Shields along with Emma Cozzy, Savannah Marshall, Thurman and Taylor.

Marshall is the only opponent the American has beaten in the ring – amateur or professional.

And Shields, 26, is out to avenge his loss in the Unpaid Ranks next year with a mega-fight against Brit Marshall.

Taylor, on the other hand, is the current Unified Lightweight Champion, three weight categories above Shields.

More bizarrely calling out social media sensation Paul and former welterweight champion Thurman.

But Shields has feuded with Paul in the past and even offered him a $100,000 winner-take-all sparring session.

In 2019, the unbeaten female boxer claimed she could beat Thurman and Shaun Porter, 34.

Shields told TMZ Sports: “I play with men. And, I mean, I spare men. I blow men’s noses, I beat men all the time.

“If I say which guy, I think I can beat – I think I can beat Keith Thurman. I really do.”

“I think I could beat Keith Thurman, even if they were like ‘Oh, he beat Sean Porter.’

“I think I can beat Sean Porter too, you know, skill-wise and just strength-wise. I think he may be stronger than me but his boxing ability is not like mine.”
