Jake Paul has claimed he has been training with alligators as he ramps up his preparation for his next foray into the squared circle.
The YouTuber has targeted a number of UFC fighters for his next bout, including Conor McGregor, but could face Love Island star and younger brother of Tyson Fury, Tommy, next instead.
The two have struck up a feud over social media after Tyson urged Paul to take on his brother next, and talks are said to be underway.

Paul has been criticised for his boxing career so far, which sees him currently standing at 3-0, but he fiercely defended himself in an interview with Max Boxing.
“I am dedicating my whole entire life to this training – 10 or 12 hours a day, stretching, sprinting, boxing, jogging, running up hills, chasing alligators – I am doing it all.”
As well as Fury, Paul has been keen to take on McGregor, Nate Diaz and Daniel Cormier, who he was seen squaring up to at the UFC over the weekend.
“I’m down 100 per cent. I just don’t think he’ll do it,” he added about Cormier. “He is retired, and he has no room to talk. I’ll fight Daniel, that’ll be massive and I think I would win.
“I want to be undefeated and want to beat good guys. I want Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor, those are the guys I want to go up against.”
