Liverpool UFC star-turned-boxer Darren Till has teased the prospect of fighting Jake Paul following the postponement of the fight with icon Mike Tyson.

The orthodox fighter was set to return to the ring after almost 20 years away to face the YouTuber-turned-boxer. However, the bout was postponed following the advice of medical professionals after a recent ulcer flareup for the 57-year-old.

Paul and Tyson were set to headline a blockbuster card at the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium which featured undisputed super lightweight world champion Katie Taylor, who was set to face-off against unified featherweight champion Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano on July 20.

However, at the end of last month, Tyson fell ill on a flight to Los Angeles which put the fight in jeopardy. Last week it was confirmed that the highly anticipated bout would be postponed with a new fight date set to be announced on Friday, June 7.

On Wednesday, Till posted a fight graphic depicting a bout with Jake Paul with a moneybag emoji, eye emoji and pinching hand emoji as the caption - tagging Paul and his promotions. The post comes after a long-running feud between the former UFC fighter and Paul.

The 31-year-old was due to fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr on the MVP Promotions event staging the heavyweight return of Tyson. Till has been angling for a fight with the American as the pair enjoyed back-and-forth on social media.

Speaking ahead of the initial fight, Till said: "When I do win, when I knock Chavez Jr. out, I’m going to get on the mic or whatever, watch Jake’s fight, and I’ll be right there in the mix.

"I’m going to hold him to that fight now. [Forget] him fighting Tommy (Fury), him fighting anyone else, all this McGregor – I’m the same size as him, so let’s see. Most probably (jumping into the ring) after the winner with a pint, just jumping in. I probably will do that."
