Jake Paul might answer Mike Perry’s calls after all.
The Youtuber turned boxer has found Perry, the former UFC welterweight, a perfect candidate for his next fight as he answers the Platinum’s calls on Twitter.
“Mike Perry it might be your lucky year,” stated Paul in a video posted on his promotional Twitter account.

The Problem Child has been long wanting a fight with his bitter rival, Tommy Fury. The duo was on course to share the ring last year, but last-moment visa issues for the younger Fury brother spoiled the plans.
Paul has once again lashed out at Fury for not accepting the deal and is now trying to move on from the idea of clashing with the Britain star.
“Tommy is running again. If fans only knew how much money I’m offering to Tommy and he’s still ducking me. It’s pretty sad.”
Numerous athletes from all the domains of the fight game have openly challenged the Problem Child with a throwdown in the past year – especially after Paul signed an exclusive multi-year, multi-fight deal with PFL and their Super Fight division.
But it seems like BKFC contractee Perry may have caught Paul’s eye for a bout.
Recently, Perry shared a picture of an alleged contract between him and Paul for a boxing bout in February.
Paul was last seen in action against the MMA legend, Anderson Silva. Paul managed to secure the win via unanimous decision.
Perry is coming off of a big win against top Bellator contender Michael “Venom” Page in their cross-promotional bout in August.
