Jake Paul's dad has been hilariously called out by YouTube star Thogdad in the latest transatlantic boxing beef.

Everyone wants a piece of someone from the Paul family at the moment, with Logan set to fight Floyd Mayweather while brother Jake is in the sights of Tyson Fury's younger half-brother Tommy as well as UFC stars Darren Till, Chuck Liddell and Daniel Cormier.

Now their dad Greg could be getting in the action after Thogdad challenged him to a fight.

The news was revealed by Thogdad's son Theo Ogden – aka Thogden – who along with his dad runs the Thogden YouTube channel.

"It's always been spoken of – Greg Paul was responding to my dad's Instagram messages and stuff, like he genuinely wanted to fight him," Thogden told the Happy Hour Podcast before his dad challenged Paul to a cross-continental brawl.

"Absolutely, I've had correspondence with Greg Paul," said Thogdad, real name Stephen Ogden, before adding: "Greg Paul, mate, come on, there's enough beef here.

"USA against UK, let's do it. Let's get in the ring in six months' time. Jake and Logan, I've had enough of watching them, let's finish this."

Thogdad's call-out had the rest of the studio in hysterics – but he insisted he was serious when asked if he would genuinely fight Paul Snr.

"Absolutely," he replied. "Under one condition, that every penny we make goes to mental health charities.

"That's the one condition – nobody makes a penny out of it. We get six months to train up, and we'll do it.

"Either side of the ocean – we'll do it in the States, we'll do it in the UK, let's raise some money for charity."

His son then suggested an appearance on the same night as the Paul brothers, saying: "With both his sons getting in the ring there's space for an undercard, Britain versus the USA, Thogdad leading the line."

Thogdad added: "We're a similar age, similar build, I've had one boxing lesson in my life. I won't make a penny from it – let's do it."
