It improved his record to 6-0 and marked the first time he claimed victory over an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

And it has also forced Paul to think twice about his previous goal of leaving the sport at 10-0.

He said on The MMA Hour: “My brother says that I should retire and leave the world and leave people with their jaws dropped, but I’m not going to do that.

“I have exceeded my own expectations but this is just the start, man.

“I am really starting to get good and there are a lot of people I want to beat and I want to be a world champion.

“Initially, I was like ‘I’ll go 10-0 and then retire’, but now I’m 6-0 and it’s like I’m just getting warmed up, so who knows what ends up happening?”

The big criticism that remains for Paul, 25, is not having yet fought a seasoned boxer.

Tommy Fury, 23, has twice pulled out in the past while Hasim Rahman Jr, 31, was also withdrawn amid a weight row.

Fury, who was unable to fight due to a rib injury and then a US visa issue, remains on the cards for next year in the UK or Middle East.

Although Paul warned he will not be forced into fighting anyone.

He said: “I feel like definitely professional boxer is the No1 criticism, but again, anyone that is smart knows that Anderson Silva is a real professional boxer, and just beat a former world champion.

“So I don’t know. But at this point, I’m just going to do whatever the f*** I want, and fight whoever is willing and ready to show up.”
