JAKE PAUL revealed he would only consider an MMA switch if he fought Canelo Alvarez and had an undefeated 12-0 boxing record.
Paul is now 5-0 as a professional boxer, with knockout wins over former UFC pair Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
He was urged by UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal to cross over to the octagon so they can fight.
But Paul admitted only after certain goals are achieved would he even contemplate the switch of codes.
Asked if he would ever fight in the UFC octagon, he responded: "After I'm like 10-0, maybe 12-0. After I fight probably Canelo."
In Paul's first three fights, he beat YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
But he then followed it up with an eight-round points win over Woodley, 39, in August.
Paul was set to fight Tommy Fury, 22, afterwards, until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.

Woodley then signed as a late replacement but was knocked out in the rematch, with Masvidal, 37, in attendance and later called out.
Paul flat out refused Masvidal's offer to sign a deal with the UFC and claimed he earned more than anyone in the MMA stable, including Conor McGregor.
The social media sensation made it clear he is his own boss, unlike those contracted to the UFC, and makes more money than the lot of them.
On his brother Logan's podcast, Paul added: "It's not to demean every UFC fighter, because obviously you want to be a part of a big platform, of course.
"I feel like I came off a little strong, but like, when these guys are talking to me and talking s*** online, that's when it's just like, you have no idea what you're talking about.
"And by the way, it's f***ed up. So the point I'm making is they're employees, I'm a CEO, but the point I'm making also is the situation they're in is not good and it needs change.
"But don't try and play the CEO, boss s*** with me and offers, talking negotiations and money because I'll run circles around all these motherf*ers."
