The boxing world has a new rising star.  Who will be the next opponent? Who will Jake Paul fight next following his first round KO of Ben Askren this past weekend?

According to a major offshore sportsbook, there are currently four clear contenders to box Jake Paul next.

The top potential opponent is Joe Fournier, who is currently listed at +200 to box Jake Paul next. Fournier is a UK entrepreneur who is currently 9-0 as a professional boxer.

Next up at +250? Tommy Fury, the half-brother of Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. Tommy Fury is 5-0 as a professional boxer and is even younger than Jake Paul.

In terms of moving the needle in Europe, Tommy Fury seems like a great choice.

After that is a long list of mixed martial artists:

Dillon Danis, +400
Tyron Woodley, +500
BJ Penn, +1200
Conor McGregor, +1200
Chris Leben, +1600
Matt Brown, +2000
Jimi Manuwa, +2500
Nate Diaz, +2500
Phil Baroni, +2500
Floyd Mayweather, +3300

There has also been talk about Daniel Cormier getting the next fight, though he is retired from competition and much heavier than Paul.


Tommy Fury seems like the logical next fight for Jake Paul, though we will see the direction that they end up going.

Fighting another MMA fighter (especially one with a higher profile than Askren) is a smart idea as well, as it will draw all of the MMA fans into buying as well.

One thing is for sure - there is no shortage of potential opponents for Jake Paul.
