Conor Ben jokingly said that he has more chances to face Jake Paul than Aamir Khan or Klay Brook.

The rising British star has ousted the veteran welterweight pair – who will eventually fight in February – in the past.

But he doubts either will like it, and the YouTuber-turned-5-0 boxer considers his odds of fighting Paul higher than either Khan or Brooke.

Ben told World Boxing News: “Aamir Khan doesn’t want it. No chance he’ll want it, no way.

“I’ve talked to him about it. He (Brooke) is retiring after the fight. Klay Brooke, I’ll be fighting all day.

“I’d fight one of them, but I’ve got more of a chance to fight Jake Paul, it’s one of those situations – why would they want to fight me?”

25-year-old Ben is 20-0 and he recently scored a brilliant knockout against 37-year-old Chris Algieri, a former world champion.

And he is on a different trajectory to Khan and Brooke, both 35, who will meet in a grudge match in Manchester after years of feuding.

Ben has assaulted Brooke before and imagines his chances against Khan – despite closing his eyes against 39-year-old Gennady Golovkin and 31-year-old Errol Spence.

He said: “It’s a 50-50 fight, 10 years too late, but it’s still a 50-50 fight. Khan’s chin is too weak. No secret there.

“But Klay Brooke has fractured both eyes, so it’s like who has what’s left.

“But I’m tipping Brooke. More durable. I don’t think mine has the power to break his eye socket, like Gennady Golovkin or Spence.”

“Hopefully, Brooke comes through and then he can get smoke. He can get Ben smoking.”
