Jake Paul mocked Conor McGregor and Ben Askren's respective boxing records, suggesting the winless pair should go head-to-head in a fight.

Paul and McGregor have exchanged words on Twitter in recent days after the American's sly dig following his recent boxing victory versus Askren.

After claiming the third win of his professional career, Paul suggested that the fight generated £54m in PPV sales as he compared his earnings to that of McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.

"In Conor McGregor's third fight in the UFC he got paid $80,000. In Floyd Mayweather's third fight he got paid $7,500," he said.

"And by the way no one is this room can name who they fought. I will pay you 50 grand if you can."

McGregor hit back at these claims, accusing the American of competing in 'blogger jack*** boxing'.

The Notorious has only ever faced Mayweather in a boxing match, suffering a 10th-round TKO knockout in 2017 against the undefeated star.

Meanwhile Askren's record also stands at 0-1, a loss that arrived only two weeks ago against Paul himself.

And Paul was quick to point this out to his two rivals on Twitter, sharing pictures of McGregor and Askren with the words "0-1" and adding: "This is the fight we all wanna see."
