Conor McGregor’s coach has slammed Jake Paul for his recent callouts of the Irishman and his sparring partner, Dylan Moran.
Paul took to Instagram on Monday to poke fun at Moran, who McGregor has drafted in to be a part of his UFC 257 training camp.
‘The Notorious’ has backed Moran to make it to the top and dubbed him a ‘phenomenal talent’. But Paul dug up footage of his loss to Dennis Okoth.
It’s something John Kavanagh took huge issue with and he tweeted: “With all the seriousness of what’s going on in the world right now the thoughts of that TikTok guy Jake Logan [sic] having a real boxing match with a genuine pro of @pro_dylanmoran standard gives me a giggle.”
He then added: “His corner better have the towel ready after a round.”
YouTube star Paul is desperate to duke it out with McGregor and is yet to get a response, with McGregor currently preparing for a showdown with Dustin Poirier on Fight Island.
In the Instagram videos posted earlier this week, Paul stated: “Conor’s taking easy fights. But he’s been sparring in Ireland!
“He’s been boxing, going against some phenomenal, exciting Irish talent.
“This kid must be really good, because Conor’s a ‘good boxer’ right? And then we looked this kid up!
“Ladies and gentlemen, presenting to you: the big, bad, exciting Irish talent – Dylan Moran, the kid that Conor McGregor is sparring against. Take a look!”
Moran has responded to the video and vented: “Jake, I just watched your interview. You are one thick, ignorant fool. I don’t even know what to say about you.
“You’re an absolute disgrace to yourself, America.
“The best thing to happen over that way was Donald Trump. I hope he gets back into power and builds an even bigger wall to keep you and all your clowns behind it.
“Now Jake the last few weeks we’ve watched you online disrespecting fighters, good people, asking for fights, shouting offers.
“This is my offer to you. I’ll come to America today, tomorrow or any other day. Me and you go to the legendary Floyd Mayweather’s gym and we’ll get in the ring – doghouse rules.
“Let’s see how that works out for you. I will rip your head off Jake. We are not the same. You make videos for a living, I fight.
“You’ve put it out there and everybody wants to see it, so we’re all waiting on your reply.”
