English former mixed martial artist Dan Hardy wants to come back to the ring and face off Jake Paul in his comeback fight. However, Hardy had worked with UFC as a color commentator for a long time and recently left the network over a disagreement.
Hardy retired from his fighting career in 2012 and joined the UFC as a color commentator. But, it seems he wants to come back as a fighter as he left the job at UFC. He recently showed interest in fighting Jake Paul after Paul knocked out Ben Askren.
The former color commentator has been rooting for the Ban Askren from the beginning. “I really hope Askren wins. If there is anything right with the world, Askren will teach him a lesson,” he tweeted.
I really hope Askren wins. If there is anything right with the world, Askren will teach him a lesson…
I just don’t see him having the skills to do it in a boxing match.
Ben has such a strong grappling game that his striking has always been neglected.

Now that Ben got knocked out in the first round, Hardy wants to take on Paul and take revenge on behalf of Askren. “I’d wreck him,” Dan said about fighting the YouTuber.
I’d wreck him.

Hardy had a bumpy career and won 25 fights out of his 36 career fights. Coming back to the ring at the age of 38 should not be a good idea. Furthermore, Hardy had his last fight almost nine years ago. Fighting a young boxer like Jake Paul may get him a tough time.
However, Paul is yet to make any statement on that. And Paul might not bother to reply on that as he is looking to fight other top fighters.
