The 36-year-old is a three-time world champion and currently holds the IBF title at £200.

He is 28-1 in his professional career and now wants to fight YouTuber Paul in a money-making battle.

And he was even willing to put ink on his body to do so.

The veteran fighter has shown a new tattoo of Paul’s name.

It reads ‘Jake’s Bad Deed’ and goes down his left thigh.

But Hearn was not impressed.

The promoter exploded: “Brydis is walking around like one, I mean, what is Byredis doing?

“Brides is embarrassing.

“He’s getting Jake Paul tattooed on his leg and calling him to fight. What’s he doing?

“He’s a unification there against Lawrence O’Coley. I know he’s got an essential.

“I mean, that man is shameful. Great fighter, by the way, brilliant fighter.

“But there’s a world champion cruiserweight calling Jake Paul and Karma getting tattoos saying something like Jake…

“I mean, the tattoo is real or not, what?

“And I love Maris Byrdes.

“He’s a fantastic fighter, but dude, let’s get real, fight Lawrence Okoli.”

This isn’t the first time Byrdes has called the problem child.

Back in May his agent Kallar Sauerland offered 24-year-old Paul a shot at his client’s belt.

He wrote on Twitter: “Hey Jake Paul – happy to arrange for you to take a shot at Maris Byrdie’s belt, only stipulation that you have to quit boxing if you lose… Deal?”

Tommy Fury is still determined to be Paul’s next opponent after pulling out of his scheduled bout due to injury last month.

But Paul has teased a move to MMA, posting a clip of himself practicing a leg kick while tagging Bellator and the PFL.
