‘The public haven’t forgotten’ – Dylan Moran can’t escape Jake Paul links – Waterford fighter calls out YouTubers trainer!

Dylan Moran [15(6)-1(1)] says fight fans around the world won’t let him forget about Jake Paul [3(3)-0].

The Waterford welter isn’t overly keen on settling his differences with the massive social media name in a pro bout, preferring a chance to ‘put manners’ on the American in a behind closed doors spar, away from ‘the circus’.

However, aware of the money that would be involved his manager Conor Slater has been in touch with Thriller and has discussed the Deise fighter being the first pro boxer Paul would agree to face.

Still ‘The Real Deal’, who Paul insulted earlier this year in a bid to get at Conor McGregor, can’t see the fight ever happening, although the outspoken PPV revenue generator is a name he just can’t separate himself from.

“A fight between us will never happen – it’s high risk, low reward, for him. So I was happy to forget about it,” Moran told Sky Sports.

“But on Sunday, after his fight, my phone was blowing up so the public haven’t forgotten.”

Moran would love to see Tommy Fury, who like Paul is a star outside of sport, but unlike Paul has some solid boxing previous, take on the American and suggests he could fight the Youtubers trainer J’Leon Love [24(13)-3(2)-1] on the undercard.

“I’d like to see Tommy Fury punch him up – he needs a wake-up call. This isn’t the Disney Channel.

“His trainer J’Leon Love is making a comeback so I’d happily put him back into retirement.”

Love hasn’t fought since 2019, retiring after back-to-back defeats. However, those defeats came again David Benavidez and Peter Quillin and considering the American was last seen at middleweight, that could prove a tricky fight for the Waterford welter.
