Jack Paul is set to return to the ring on August 13 – but the YouTube performer has yet to announce his next opponent.
During an interview in April, Paul even mentioned Sonny Bill Williams on a short list of potential opponents, including UFC Great Michael Bishop and Anderson Silva.
But according to rival campaigner Eddie Hearn, who worked with Paul in the recent landmark women’s fight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden, the 5-0 fighter has already made up his mind.

Speaking to TalkSport, Horn said Paul Tyson would fight Fury’s brother Tommy, eight months after their December fight ended.
“I don’t represent them, but I hear that fight [Paul vs Fury] It’s happening on August 13, so you can see it, “Horn said.
“Both are very limited, but unless it’s a competitive fight, it doesn’t really matter.
“Jake Paul is weird, but I like what he’s doing for boxing.
“I did Amanda Serrano vs. Katie Taylor with her and it was so much fun, it was a huge success.
“She is OK. She is OK.
“But it will be a happy day when no one will recognize him.”
Neither Paul, Fury nor their respective teams have officially announced the event.
The two had previously been scheduled to fight, but Fury withdrew from the fight due to a combination of illness and injury.
Turned-on from YouTuber-boxer Paul is currently undefeated after picking his opponent Cherry to start his career, but still can’t fight a well-known boxer, his victory came against one YouTuber, a former NBA player and two MMA fighters. Their prime is past.
Paul sparked a public feud with former UFC champion Michael Bisping, which led to speculation that the former middleweight champion was under consideration.
Fury was a cast member of the reality show Love Island before giving his full attention to boxing, following in the footsteps of his honest brother, heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
