Conor McGregor labels Jake Paul a "flop" despite YouTuber’s unbeaten record

Conor McGregor has stuck the boot in on Jake Paul, calling the YouTuber-turned-boxer a "flop" despite his unbeaten record.

Social media loudmouth Paul, 25, has repeatedly tried to entice McGregor into the ring for a money-spinning boxing match. But The Notorious isn't having any of it. Replying to a video of an interview Paul did on Twitter, McGregor hit back: "You’ve 2 fights and done 70k buys," accompanied by the crying-laughing emoji. He then added: "You are a flop, kid. A nobody."

Despite McGregor's opposition to a blockbuster bout between the pair, Paul believes a coming together is inevitable at some point in the future.

Looking ahead to what's next for him, he said: "I think for me, fighting a couple more times, continuing to knock some people out, and he has to get active again, who knows when that's gonna happen?

"I think those two things need to happen, and then at some point, it's gotta happen. You know, why not? He's a businessman, I'm a businessman, and that's $75m to $100m for both of us."

Paul might be angling for a lucrative bout against McGregor, but he has Hasim Rahman Jr to think about first. The pair will do battle early next month after Tommy Fury was forced to withdraw from their scheduled fight for a second time due to visa issues.

The social media star has not stepped foot in the ring since his sixth round defeat of Tyron Woodley in December. McGregor has been out of action for even longer as he continues to recover from a broken leg sustained against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

The Irishman is training hard as he prepares for his long-awaited return to the octagon. Although his next opponent has not yet been announced, there is speculation that he could take on either Michael Chandler or Charles Oliveira.
