Paul returns to the ring this weekend as he faces UFC great Anderson Silva in an eight-rounder on Showtime pay-per-view.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer was previously in talks to fight Tommy Fury, but this fell through on multiple occasions.

He and Tyson are two of boxing's biggest characters so them clashing was inevitable. The pair made a £1m bet before the last fight with Tommy collapsed.

Paul has now suggested that he still wants to fight Tommy and a clash with Tyson in the WWE may happen.

"Maybe a wrestling event, maybe we go WWE," Paul told Sky Sports. "I definitely want to take out his little brother though, Tommy. I think that's still a big fight and there's unfinished business."

The fight many people want to see is Paul versus fellow YouTuber KSI. Their rivalry has been building for years and it is a potential major money-spinner for all involved. KSI used to be trained by Viddal Riley, who is a professional in his own right and competes in the cruiserweight division for Sky Sports/BOXXER. Riley and Paul are of a similar build and the latter thinks a fight against the respected amateur is "super interesting". "I think it would be super, super interesting," Paul continued. "I talk about the possibility of fighting Viddal, I think it's super interesting, especially because he was KSI's trainer and the whole narrative between KSI and I. But KSI is never going to get into the ring with me. "He [KSI] is not taking it seriously. There's no way he can catch up to the level that I'm at. So I think it would be funny to prove to the world that I'm better than KSI and beat his trainer. I think it's definitely a possibility. "It makes a lot of sense. I think we have similar records. I think the boxing world would laugh: 'you're going to lose.' I just know I would win. That's what would be great about the fight. The shock factor. "If we could figure out the business side of it, if we could get media partners aligned to be interested in it, then I think it's a big fight."
