JAKE PAUL promised to knock out Conor McGregor in 'boxing or MMA' – as he boasted of having a 'right hand of God'.
McGregor, recovering from a broken tibia suffered in July, posted a video hitting pads as he ramps up his preparations to return.
But YouTuber-turned-prizefighting star Paul – who has continued his one-sided feud with the Irishman – mocked the workout video.
He posted on Instagram: "This is embarrassing @thenotoriousmma.
"Your chin wide open with no head movement for the PRBLM CHILD right hand of god."
Paul then followed it up on Twitter, as he added: "I would KO Conor in boxing or MMA. Right hand of God."

McGregor made his ring debut in 2017 but lost to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, 45, in ten rounds.
UFC fighters are otherwise prohibited from competing outside of the promotion – with the crossover clash a one-off not repeated since.
