Jake Paul is back in the ring this weekend and keen to maintain his momentum in boxing following an impressive victory on debut against fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib.

Paul has been trading verbals with former NBA player Nate Robinson, with the pair somehow manufacturing enough hype to claim a coveted spot on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.

Paul has looked to rile the NBA community, by claiming any other player “can get it too”, while he has also joined Tyson by celebrating reports that the card has broken pre-sale records, demonstrating the intrigue surrounding the entire card.

Paul already has his sights set on a bigger fight down the road, calling out Conor McGregor and insisting they are “bound to meet”.

“Look, it’s bound to happen,” Paul told CBS Sports. “At the end of the day, this is a business, and you know, we’re talking about pay-per-view buys. This fight on Saturday has already shattered pay-per-view pre-sale records, by far.

“McGregor has that same pay-per-view draw, I have that same pay-per-view draw, and I think after I take down a couple more opponents, Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is gonna be undeniable.

“There’s no other fighter with as big of a platform as me that’s calling him out right now. He wants to fight Manny Pacquiao, Manny Pacquiao will destroy him. It’ll be another embarrassing night for him, just like when he got embarrassed by Floyd. And so Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is bound to happen. I know he’s seen these interviews, I know he’s seen the shit-talk, and it’s gonna happen.”

Here’s everything we know about Jake Paul’s net worth and earning potential:

What is Jake Paul’s net worth and earning potential against Nate Robinson? 

Jake Paul made his name and his fortune as a Disney Channel star on the series Bizaardvark and making videos on YouTube, with his current net worth totalling $11.5m (£8.6m), according to Forbes.

His brother, Logan, is also a YouTube star, who has dabbled in boxing, with two highly successful fights against KSI, the second of which was fought under professional rules. Logan Paul’s net worth, comparatively, is estimated at $12.5m (£9.35m) by Forbes.

Logan Paul earned $900,000 for his second fight with KSI, which suggests Paul, too, will look to take home a purse in the region of seven figures.
