After the fight, Paul talked about what’s next for his boxing career and while he’s not entirely sure who he’ll face after Askren he does believe a fight vs UFC superstar Conor McGregor is imminent.
We’ll see,” “There are a lot of people. But honestly, when it comes down to signing the contract, these guys duck. Honestly, we’ll see. The McGregor fight just became more realistic, like I’ve been saying. I just want to do big fights.
’m going to take some time off,” “I’ve been working my f*cking ass off. I’m only going to do big fights. I want to challenge myself at the same time. Ben Askren was a step up. OK, look what happened (in) 1:59. We’ll see who the next big challenge is. I don’t want to take some bullsh*t sh*t. I want to challenge myself. I want to do 3 million, 4 million pay-per-view buys. Who’s going to bring in those numbers?”
Paul may be also trying to lure UFC star Nate Diaz into a fight. On Sunday afternoon Paul randomly tweeted that he could KO Diaz in three rounds.
Nate Diaz gets KO’d in 3🤐

At this point, no matter who Paul chooses to fight it’ll probably do extremely well on the PPV market.
