Jake Paul calls out Daniel Cormier after comments about Ben Askren fight

Jake Paul has called out former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier for his next boxing bout.

Paul made it three wins from three in the ring as he stopped Ben Askren at the weekend, and is now looking for his next opponent.

He has already called out UFC greats Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier while also claiming a fight with Conor McGregor fight is close.

Cormier had criticised the way Paul and his friend, fellow boxer J'Leon Love, had been speaking to another UFC star in Tyron Woodley.

Cormier had posted on social media: “I mean the way this dude talked to T-wood makes my skin crawl. All these kids are going to get taught a lesson I swear.

“And I can’t wait for it, @JLeonLove you can’t fight. Better respect dudes like @TWooodley before he puts his hands on you. He ain’t Ben!”

Though Paul seemed to take the comments to heart and wants to take on Cormier, responding: “Okay fat boy. So me vs you & J vs. T.??”

Before adding: “BOUTTA COOK HIM UP CLEVELAND STYLE”.

Paul beat an out of shape Askren easily, knocking him to the canvas in the first two minutes of the fight.

The ex-UFC star did get back to his feet though the referee called the fight off.

"It's been four months. I've been in training camp every day," said Paul. "This is the craziest moment of my life.

"I told y'all I was going to do it in the first round. I told y'all I'm a real fighter. I don't know how many times I've got to prove myself this is for real."
