YouTuber-turned-boxing sensation Jake Paul says he’ll announce his subsequent struggle “quickly.” 

While he didn’t give any information out on who he plans to take on in his upcoming bout, he recently went back and forth on social media with welterweight titleholder Kamaru Usman. 

But based on the rest of his tweet—when he suggested that fighters should “make sure you are getting paid like a king”—it might not be Usman that Paul is suiting up against.

In an appearance on the You’re Welcome podcast, Paul criticized UFC President Dana White, saying that he didn’t think it was fair that fighters were “owned by Dana White and they’re not getting fair pay” (h/t Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com). 

Paul has mentioned he is open to fights in opposition to UFC legends Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. 

In an Instagram story Tuesday, Paul did level out one opponent he is not attempting to struggle in opposition to—Khabib Nurmagomedov, who retired in October with a 29-0 file (h/t Stephen McCaugherty of Heavy.com). 

Paul is 3-0 in his fights so far, most just lately defeating Ben Askren by technical knockout on April 17.
