Novice professional boxer and social media star Jake Paul has been relentlessly pursuing a professional boxing match with Conor McGregor for some time.

In recent days he’s even spent one-hundred-thousand dollars on a necklace that has the image of one of McGregor’s knockout defeats.

McGregor lost in the first round tonight in Vegas in a UFC rematch, and suffered a horrific injury to his ankle.

One that needed him taken out on a stretcher.

Paul has reacted to the fight with his new offer:

McGregor will likely be on the sidelines for some time with the injury.

But no doubt a boxing match against Paul down the line could be a possibility.

Largely because of the sheer money it generate.

Time will tell.
