JAKE PAUL has been urged by his ex-coach Shane Mosley to fight a former world champion if he beats Tommy Fury.
Mosley, who won titles in three divisions, was the first to ever train Paul as a professional.
He led the YouTuber-turned-boxer, 26, to a one-round victory over social media rival AnEsonGib in January 2020.
Paul – who has since gone 6-0 – is now trained by ex-cruiserweight contender BJ Flores and Danny Smith.
He returns on Sunday in Saudi Arabia against Tommy Fury, 23, with the victor earning a WBC cruiserweight world ranking.
In his last fight, Paul beat Anderson Silva the UFC legend who in 2021 defeated ex-middleweight champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

And it is the son of Mexican boxing legend Chavez Sr who Mosley wants Paul to face after Fury.
He told FightHype: “Maybe he should fight Chavez Jr or something, or he fights this guy [Tommy Fury] and he wins, then fight Chavez Jr.
"Anderson Silva fought him already, maybe he should fight him and see what happens.
"He has to step his way up, keep stepping his way up and the way he looks now, he can do it.
