Tyson Fury’s half-brother Tommy Fury also features, and with a feud currently simmering between Paul and Fury, the Brit’s name is written on the board as ‘Timmy.’
Fury is also on the same card as Paul for the event later in August as he takes on MMA veteran Anthony Taylor on the undercard.
Paul’s list features 13 names in total, including three fighters he has already defeated and crossed out including AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren.
The list also includes MMA brothers Nate and Nick Diaz, although Paul appeared to indicate he would only want to fight one of the pair.
Paul’s ultimate goal to become world champion is to take on boxing star Canelo Alvarez
Former UFC champion Conor McGregor is also being targeted by the social media star
But the YouTube star’s ultimate target is Canelo as he hopes to become the first social media star to land a major title.
‘Anything is possible – my goal is to become a world champion to laugh and say I did it. Ultimate fight would be against Canelo,’ the YouTube sensation told talkSPORT.
‘It’s about making history and proving people wrong – I want to leave an everlasting legacy. I know I can become one of the best in the world in this sport. Boxing is the perfect way to prove haters wrong.’
