Paul has been frustrated after not being included in the plan to fight on the same night as his older brother Logan, and made a video directed at Hearn which has now been viewed more than 1.5 million times.
The 22-year-old turned up at the press conference last Saturday and had a conversation with Hearn on Logan’s Impaulsive podcast where he called out Isiah Ocasio, commonly known as FaZe Sensei.
Other possible bouts for Paul include Dillon Danis, Soulja Boy and AnEsonGib, although he claims the latter wouldn’t do much for his reputation as he isn’t known in America.
With the likes of Billy Joe Saunders and Devin Haney set to fight on the undercard, Hearn is looking to move Paul’s appearance to a later date.
“It makes more sense to put him on an undercard the month later [after KSI vs Logan Paul], to try and retain that audience,” Hearn told Seconds Out.
“You’ve got DAZN monthly subscribers, if you get half a million subscribers, probably more, and you say by the way next month we’ve also got Jake Paul.
“That’s clever, but whether that happens or not I don’t know.”
