Five opponents for Jake Paul after Tyron Woodley KO including Tommy Fury, Mike Tyson and UFC star Conor McGregor

JAKE PAUL has now officially outclassed every opponent it has faced – and promises that the best is yet to come.

After beating Tyron Woodley on points in August, the YouTuber vowed to leave no doubt in the rematch.

And after a brutal KO in round six of their rematch, Paul lived up to his promise.

Before and after the win, American celebrity outed some of the biggest names.

And here SunSport lays out the next five potential opponents for Paul.

Fury, 22, was set to fight Paul, 24, in a celebrity grudge match, until he passed out with a broken rib and a chest infection.

Woodley, 39, instead filled in on short notice and Fury was warned that he had missed his chance forever.

But the biggest knock on Paul’s unbeaten five-fight record is that he has yet faced an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

And even with Fury a novice at 7-0, and physically equal to Paul, the fight could very well be matched to leave on the shelf.

Conor McGrego

The Irishman, 33, has been Paul’s No. 1 target since he stepped into the ring.

McGregor still has two matches left on his UFC contract and will be barred from competing outside the Octagon in return.

But in 2017 UFC President Dana White allowed his greatest attraction to fight and lose 44-year-old Floyd Mayweather in the ring.

McGregor is the only one who is able to do it again, and if the money was right, boxing could be too tempting for Paul to turn down.

Diaz, 36, on the other hand, has just one UFC fight on his current deal and has already hinted at entering the ring.

And Paul recently revealed that he wants to take a break from fighting after four bouts in 13 months.

This could give Diaz enough time to finish his final fight with the UFC before setting up a boxing match between them next year.

Diaz was also present in Paul’s rematch with Woodley as his teammate Chris Avila, 28, was on the undercard.

anderson silva

The Brazilian, 46, was released from his UFC contract in 2020 and returned to the boxing ring, where he was already 1-1.

This was followed by victories over former boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (35) and fellow MMA legend Tito Ortiz, 46.

Silva then entered negotiations to fight Paul but nothing came of success, meaning that the possibility of a matchup remains.

His current pro boxing record and superb striking skills mean that even at his veteran age, he will be a step forward for Paul.

The heavyweight icon, 55, returned in November 2020 after 15 years to draw with 52-year-old Roy Jones Jr. at an exhibition.

Paul knocked out 37-year-old Nate Robinson, an ex-NBA player, on the undercard and struck up a friendship with Tyson.

But more recently, Iron Mike has been linked to a fight against 26-year-old Paul’s brother Logan.

And then Paul added fuel to the fire by naming Tyson on his four-man wish list of opponents.
