As the world of YouTube boxing continues to grow, Sportsmail looks at how far Paul will go and whether he can get a shot at the big guns Fans of YouTube boxing will be more familiar with the elder Paul brother - Logan - who took on KSI in a high-profile Las Vegas bout in November and lost to the British celebrity after the pair battled to a majority draw one year earlier.
Now little brother Jake - born two years after Logan in Ohio - is following in his older sibling's footsteps in the world of YouTuber boxing. Paul made his name on Vine in , amassing over 2billion hits and 5.
Paul started his career on social media sites Vine and YouTube - and his stock has grown. The year-old's work mainly involves music production, with Paul releasing several popular singles including 'Fresh Outta London', '23' and 'I'm Single'.
Though Paul's media career has been doused in a great deal of controversy, with his most high-profile contentious moments including a spat with One Direction's Zayn Malik in Las Vegas, publishing age-inappropriate material on his YouTube channel and being charged with criminal tresspassing during this year's George Floyd protests.
The year-old's boxing career may just be three fights old but an undefeated record so far puts him in good stead for future battles.
Paul first stepped into the ring for an exhibition fight against KSI's brother 'Deji' for a white-collar encounter ahead of their siblings' battle in His boxing debut resulted in a fifth-round win over the fellow YouTuber, whose team threw in the towel after a series of devastating punches.
The American showed his growing potential by knocking out 'Gib' inside round one. But Paul's best performance to date has been his most recent one.
As part of the undercard for the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr bout last November, the year-old demolished former basketball player Nate Robinson 90 seconds into the second round despite Paul having no experience in professional sport before his boxing days.
After beating one of the Paul brothers last year, it looks like KSI is going to have another sibling in Jake over the coming months. Speculation is rife as to who will be the year-old's next opponent, but Paul was fairly sure on the chances of a match-up against the British YouTuber and influencer.
If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture. The Irishman, who famously took on yet lost to Floyd Mayweather in the summer on , is unlikely to completely dismiss the idea of getting a first boxing victory on the board against a competitor with little fighting experience.
Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn is a huge fan of a Paul vs McGregor fight, claiming that it is an even bigger draw for fans than the Irishman taking on Mayweather again.
Jake Paul has also been very vocal about how confident he is about beating Conor McGregor. Hearn told Sirius XM Boxing: 'I think it's reasonably competitive, especially with the weight difference.
Paul certainly did not hold back at the start of the year when discussing a potential match-up with McGregor, claiming that preparations will be intense if the fight does get arranged.
That's what I want people to understand! Paul has kept up the fighting talk throughout , claiming after the Robinson victory that he has the potential to defeat McGregor in the ring.
He claimed: 'I've been training my ass off for the past year. I'm taking this seriously. I'm going to knock them both out.
Recently, while talking about the fight, Floyd Mayweather revealed that he could have ended the match much earlier if he had wanted to.
While talking to Drink Champs on Revolt TV, the fighter stated that he kept on fighting till the tenth round because he wanted to keep the possibility of a future rematch alive.
However, after adding all the bonuses and sponsorship money, the purse for the two fighters was substantially higher.
The tickets of the bout are already on sale and are expected to make millions, considering the popularity of everyone involved.
