EDDIE HEARN wants to see Jake Paul fight Conor McGregor and make lots of money, then quit his boxing career.
The YouTuber extended his record to 4-0 in the ring when he secured a seven-round split decision win over Tyron Woodley last weekend.

Despite his victory over former UFC champion, Matchroom promoter Hearn believes the “novelty” of the social media star competing in the ring is starting to fade.
Woodley wants a rematch, but after the lack of action last weekend, the assertiveness of the two will be lacking.
The day after Woodley petitioned for a rematch, Paul told his opponent on social media that he would have to get a tattoo that read “I love Jake Paul” if he wanted to shoot him again.
Paul announced afterward that he would retire from the ring, but a potential fight with UFC megastar McGregor would almost certainly lure him back.
McGregor has also expressed an interest in fighting Paul, and the clash would sell millions through pay-per-view.
Now Hearn has given Paul some advice, says iFL TV: “Look, you have to take your hat off.

“What Jake Paul and Logan Paul did was pretty amazing, you know? And the show was full.
“Boxing is a tough, tough sport in America. We found that. It’s not like the UK and I think they are [Logan and Jake] do a good job.
“But I think it’s going to fizzle out soon, I really do. I think every novelty only stays new for a certain period of time and it’s always about the product.
“The product is not really great. The idea is great, the hype is great, but what you actually see is just not very good. “
Hearn added, “I think he should fight Conor McGregor.
“I think he is [Jake Paul] is beaten sooner or later. So why not just fight Conor McGregor and make a lot of money. It’s actually a pretty good fight.
“I don’t know how they’re going to put up the weight. Could Jake come up with 170? I do not know.
“But just do the fight. Let her make a few pounds and then go into the sunset. “
