EDDIE HEARN has revealed its big fight wishlist for 2022 – featuring Jake Paul against Conor McGregor and Deontay Wilder vs Derek Chisora ​​in dream bouts.

The promoter had a hand in creating some of the biggest events in 2021, including stars like Anthony Joshua, 32, and Canelo Alvarez, 31.

And there’s no doubt that he’ll want to pick up where he left off when boxing resumes next year.

But Hearn is also a fan of the sport at heart, so expect the rest of us to see boxers out of their stable in big fights.

The two mega-stars outside their matchroom boxing banner are YouTuber Paul, 24, and former UFC champion McGregor, 33.

And he believes for Paul – whose professional debut was promoted by Hearn – a match-up with Irishman McGregor is one he wants to see.

He said on DAZN: “For Jake Paul personally, the battle to make is Conor McGregor.

“It’s a mega-fight and a really good fight too, getting the catchweight in the middle, although Conor McGregor looks huge at the moment.

“Conor McGregor; Legend, Jake Paul; Content legend – but it’s a lot of fun to work with.

“I want to see Jake Paul up against Conor McGregor, let’s make it – I can’t say this tops my list of Christmas must-haves on DAZN, but a little bit of fun for the festive season.”

Elsewhere on the list are former WBC King Wilder, 36, and British veteran Chisora, 38.

Wilder was recently knocked out by 33-year-old Tyson Fury in the 11th round of his epic trilogy bout.

Meanwhile, Chisora ​​was dealt three blows in a thrilling rematch loss to 29-year-old Joseph Parker.

Despite his third loss on spin, Hearn is hoping to lure Wilder into a comeback fight against Chisora.

He added: “Deontay Wilder, we want to see you back in the ring. I have the perfect guy for you – Derek Chisora.

“Come on, he’s moving a bit, he’s now coming off three losses on spin. Easy comeback fight for Deontay Wilder. Derek is ready.”
