Ali Abdelaziz says Jake Paul’s next opponent is Chael Sonnen and the winner of the upcoming fight will go on to face Mike Tyson next.

Last night, reports emerged about a potential Showtime pay-per-view boxing bout between the YouTuber and former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley.

As news of the fight began to spread, Abdelaziz took to social media to claim it’s not true and it’s Sonnen who is actually next up for Paul.

“The rumors are not true in fact Jake Paul’s next fight is going to be against @ChaelSonnen and the winner is going to take on iron Mike Tyson,” Abdelaziz wrote. “Nobody has better knowledge of these negotiations than me and I’m telling you everything.”

Sonnen responded to Abdelaziz’s claim by saying he is down to fight all three men.

“I’ll beat Iron Mike, Jake Paul and T wood all in the same night with any rules they want. I’m in Ali,” Sonnen wrote. “My only condition is they MUST guarantee Mike.”
