Here's who we like to potentially face Paul on March 2, odds you won't find just yet on Ohio betting apps.
While far from a sure thing, our team of experts like the London-born KSI (+400) and his brazen personality for a fight against Paul on March 2. What makes this matchup enticing? Let's start with the fact that KSI himself is a YouTuber-turned-boxer, musician and entrepreneur. Sound familiar, Paul fans?
KSI is 4-1 as a pro in the ring, including a win over Jake Paul's brother Logan back in 2019, but it's been some time since he captured a victory. KSI and Joe Fournier made for a no contest last May due to an accidental elbow strike. He then was defeated in six rounds by Tommy Fury in Manchester last October.
That means KSI could use another notable card on the docket - especially a win - in the public eye. While he is friendly with Logan Paul amid their mutual business ventures, KSI did take a shot at Jake Paul ahead of his eventual loss to Fury, writing on Instagram: "I'm doing what Jake Paul couldn't and beating Tommy Fury on the biggest night in crossover boxing history."
Let's see these two settle their own differences in the ring.
Paul has said his next opponent will be have a better record than Andre August, and look no further than current English cruiserweight champion Viddal Riley (+500).
Riley is 10-0 as a pro, including 6 knockouts. His latest victory came over previously unbeaten boxer Nathan Quarless in a unanimous decision back in September 2023. Riley's past as the trainer for KSI brought him notoriety when KSI and Logan Paul first fought, and a match against Jake Paul could bring the YouTube-boxing connections full circle.
Boxing is a sport that knows how to sell a rematch, and Tommy Fury (+900) remains the one blemish on Jake Paul's pro resume. Boxing fans know how long that fight took to come together, eventually resulting in a Fury win via split decision, though one judge scored the fight 75–74 to Paul.
A rematch makes plenty of sense for Paul, Fury and the boxing industry.
