Jake Paul’s perfect response to Dustin Poirier’s fight demand

Jake Paul is on the hunt for his next opponent after knocking out Ben Askren in the first round of their fight on Saturday, and has joked that he wants to fight Conor McGregor's recent foe Dustin Poirier next.

Paul dispatched Askren with ease at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Afterwards, rumours began swirling over his next opponent, with various fighters vying for the opportunity after learning Askren had earned $500,000 for his one minute of action.

Poirier called for him to take on UFC star Mike Perry next, but Paul had a well-timed response.

The YouTube star posted a video from what appeared to be the aftermath of a sparring session, in which Perry said: "You kicked my a**".

Paul tweeted: "He was light work. In his own words 'you kicked my a**'.

"I want to see Jake Paul vs Dustin Prober."

Speaking after beating Askren, Paul downplayed suggestions he will fight a professional boxer next.
