Eddie Hall called out Jake Paul despite the enormous weight and size difference between the pair.

The former World’s Strongest Man has only recently crossed over into the world of boxing, much like the YouTuber.

Whereas Paul has had three professional fights, knocking out ex-MMA star Ben Askren in his most recent fight, Hall is yet to step into the ring.

He will settle his feud with Hafthor Bjornsson, a fellow former World’s Strongest Man, in Las Vegas in September.

Both have been shedding the pounds as they transform their bodies from strongman frames to leaner ready for boxing.

Hall admitted he’d love to fight YouTuber Paul and says their difference in size does not matter.

Jake Paul is 6ft tall and tips the scales at a mere 75kg, while Hall is 6ft3 and is around 163kg.

Speaking on his own YouTube channel, Hall said: “I would [fight Jake Paul] actually.

“He’s actually surprised a lot of people, a lot of people laughed at Jake Paul.

“But he came out of the woodwork, he’s obviously trained very hard and he’s smashed his first victims in the ring, and he’s lined up a few more.

“Massive size difference, but there is between me and Thor, and Mike Tyson is living proof that size doesn’t really matter in the ring.

“It’s about what you do in there, how fast you are, how powerful and agile you are. That’s what matters.

“So if the money is right, I would 100 per cent fight Jake Paul. Why not? Good exposure for me, good exposure for him, and earn a few quid in doing so.

“I would probably want five minimum, £5million. So yeah, I’d fight Jake Paul for £5m. So Jake Paul bro, let’s get it on after Thor, eh?”
