Carl Froch says he would love to take on YouTube star Jake Paul – and believes he could even beat his brother Logan in a 2 vs 1 fight.
Paul returns to the ring this weekend when he faces off against former UFC champion Anderson Silva, looking to extend his unbeaten boxing record.
Silva is the first opponent he has faced to have experience inside the ring and it remains to be seen how Paul will fare this time around, although many have tipped him to cause an upset.
Former super-middleweight world champion Froch isn't having any of it though and insisted: "I’d absolutely smash him to bits, easy."

Speaking to William Hill's Stripped Podcast, the Brit added: "Jake Paul can’t fight, he’s pretending, he’s conning people. He’s got his audience, I don’t begrudge him – he’s making money and doing what he’s doing. But he’s not a professional boxer.
"He knows not to come anywhere near me. He’s bigger than me, he’s 14 stone, he’s younger than me, he’s fresher, he thinks he can fight. I wouldn’t even train for this guy, I’d do a little bit of training.
"I might do the odd little run to get the heart beating, but I’d take Jake Paul to school and hammer him. He knows it, he wouldn’t fight me. No chance."
Froch hung up his gloves following his victory over George Groves in their rematch in front of 80,000 spectators at Wembley in 2014.
But despite having over eight years outside of the ring, the Sky Sports pundit believes he would beat Paul – and brother Logan – in the same fight.
Froch added: “I’d fight him and his brother on the same night. What they could do is take it in turns, so Jake can do round one, Logan can do round two… So they’re having a four minute breather between rounds. It’s never been done, it’s exhibition boxing. I’d take them both on.”
