YouTuber Jake Paul released a new hitlist that he wants to take on as he carves his own way to becoming a boxing world champion. This comes just two weeks ahead of his fight against former UFC star Tyron Woodley. In the hitlist, Paul named Conor McGregor, Canelo Alvarez, ‘Timmy’ Fury and his own brother Logan Paul on his boxing hitlist.
Paul will be in action on August 29 when he faces Tyron Woodley, who is one of the ten fighters in the former UFC welterweight champions. This event will be held in the main event of a pay-per-view card in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tyson Fury’s half-brother Tommy Fury, too, features on the list. This comes as both of them are engaged in a cold war. Tommy’s name is written as Timmy in the whiteboard.
Tommy Fury is also on the same card as Paul for the event later that is slated for August. He will be taking on MMA veteran Anthony Taylor on the undercard.
In total, Paul’s hitlist features 13 names. The list includes three fighters who he has already beaten and crossed out. The eliminated names are AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren.
The 13-man hitlit features MMA brothers Nate and Nick Diaz. However, he indicated that he will only be fighting one of the pair.
According to media reports, Paul’s primary target is Canelo as he aims to land a major title. In doing so, he would look to become the first social media star to do so.
“Anything is possible – my goal is to become a world champion to laugh and say I did it. Ultimate fight would be against Canelo,” YouTuber Jake Paul was quoted as saying by talkSPORT.
“It’s about making history and proving people wrong – I want to leave an everlasting legacy. I know I can become one of the best in the world in this sport. Boxing is the perfect way to prove haters wrong,” he added.
