Following in the footsteps of his brother, Logan, Jake Paul began his boxing journey in 2018. While Logan fought KSI, Paul faced his brother, Deji Olatunji in an amateur white-collar match. He won the match via technical knockout. After that, Jake Paul made his professional boxing debut against YouTuber, AnEsonGib. Once again, he emerged as the winner. This opened brought more fighting opportunities for Paul. Next up, he defeated basketball player, Nate Robinson, and ONE Welterweight Champion, Ben Askren. Reportedly, his fight against Askren made $1.45 million pay pay-per-view buys. However, many MMA fighters, boxers, and fans have doubts about the authenticity of this news.
Next up, he’s all set to face UFC Welterweight Champion, Tyron Woodley
Prior to his match with Askren, Jake Paul got caught up in a confrontation with Tyron Woodley. He criticized Woodley for his lack of experience in boxing. After that match, Woodley called out Paul to fight him next. Immediately, Paul accepted and started the training. The match will take place on 29th August. In addition to the fight itself, both players have put forward an interesting bet. If Paul wins, Woodley has to get ‘I Love Jake Paul’ tattoo, if Woodley wins Paul has to get ‘I Love Tyron Woodley’ tattoo.
Ahead of his fight with Woodley, Jake Paul has been calling out MMA fighters and boxers, left right and center, to be his next opponent
Recently, he has been making hit lists where he names all the people he wants to fight. In this list, there are big names like Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, and Canelo. According to him, McGregor is his next target. He wishes to leave him in a similar state as Dustin Poirier did in their last match.
In a recent interview, Jake Paul elaborated on it and said:
He sort of lost that spunk, and I think that people are kind of second-guessing him. He’s not the same Conor, that’s for sure. It’s not as interesting. However, I would still just like to beat him up. I would want him to freak out in the ring and go crazy and lose his shit. I think it would be funny to see him break down, like how he did against Dustin Poirier.
Having said that, he made sure that people know how much respect he has for McGregor. In the end, Jake Paul said that it would be a huge honor for him to fight The Notorious McGregor. Whether he will ever get a chance to face him in the ring or not, only time will tell.
