Jake Paul is making his return to boxing later this year.

The fighter announced on social media Sunday that he plans to get back in the ring August 13th.

Paul’s last match came back in December of 2021, when he took down Tyron Woodley for a second time in five months. Paul looks to put his unblemished 5-0 record on the line, but we’re not quite sure who he’ll be squaring off against.

There have been a few names that Paul, himself, is looking to push.

A possible fight with the legendary Mike Tyson has been talked about. The two sides have reportedly been in contact after Tyson mentioned a potential matchup while making a guest appearance on a Joe Rogan podcast.

Anderson Silva has also been linked to a future match with Paul.

With Paul giving fans his projected date of return, he’s now asking folks on social media who they think he should square off against.

Fans debate Jake Paul’s next boxing test

Paul asked fans for suggestions as to who he should face in his next boxing match. The social media response was incredible.

Many are eager to see that Paul vs. Tyson fight, which would draw insane numbers on the pay-per-view markets.

Others mentioned names like Anderson Silva and Tommy Fury.

The overwhelming sentiment, though, was to see him fight a “real boxer.”

Paul has recorded a perfect 5-0 record in the ring, but many doubt the level of his competition. He’s landed knockouts against former basketball player Nate Robinson, wrestler Ben Askren, and MMA fighter Tyron Woodley.

But he’s yet to fight a true boxer.

Paul will look forward to setting up that future matchup over the coming months. We’ll see who he lines up against come August.
