Jake Paul has revealed that he will be announcing his "biggest fight yet" on Tuesday morning amid links to Tommy Fury and Conor McGregor after beating Ben Askren inside one round.

He wrote on his Instagram story: "Fight announcement tomorrow morning.

"This will be the biggest fight yet x five. This will be the hardest fight I've had, the toughest opponent by far, the most known opponent, we will break another boxing PPV record."

Paul had been in advanced talks over a £7m deal with Showtime as he eyes another opponent in the ring, and he has received blessing from Triller following their lucrative partnership.

The YouTuber-turned-prizefighter demolished Askren in April after beating AnEsonGib and Nate Robinson, and has been linked with future bouts against Tommy Fury and Floyd Mayweather.

The 24-year-old has now found his next opponent and presumably date and location, alongside one of the biggest broadcast partners in boxing.

Last week, Jake seemed to end Tommy Fury's hopes of setting up a bout by calling him and brother Tyson out with a video on social media.

He said: "The desperation is seeping through the pores of the Fury family.

It's quite embarrassing. The heavyweight champion of the world is on Instagram, talking about Jake Paul, begging me to fight his brother.

"Listen Tommy, focus on your fight that's in a couple of weeks, that nobody even knows about by the way.

"You're literally picking someone to fight you in three weeks, who hasn't even been training. You don't even have an opponent who is going to go through a real camp.
