In no time, the YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, has become a face of celebrity boxing after following ‘Maverick’ Logan Paul into the sport. He has undeniably struck vast stardom in the sport with just two fights/wins to his name, and has overshadowed his elder brother. Now, he’s looking to trace a long pathway on this side of combat sports, thus establishing his presence for many more years to come.

His predominant focus is on boxing, for now, but not everyone knows that Jake Paul and his elder brother Logan Paul began as high-school wrestlers. In fact, Logan Paul qualified for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Division 1 Wrestling Individual Championships in 2013.

‘The Problem Child’ does not hold any sort of credentials in wrestling like his elder brother. Nevertheless, he enjoyed his time trying his hand at that sport.

At a young age itself, Jake Paul accrued millions of fans through his Vines and YouTube channel. Later, he elevated the same by transitioning his strides onto the sport of boxing. Consequently, it played out well for him, and today he’s become one of the biggest brands in the sport.

In both of his fights, the 24-year-old finished his opponents with devastating power and showcased his stern in-ring abilities to one and all. He is now all charged up to enter the third professional fight of his career against the former UFC welterweight Ben Askren on April 17.

Despite Askren being a prime grappler in his extensive MMA career, he will challenge Paul in a full-fledged boxing bout between two personalities.

His prime focus nowadays is only on boxing, and ‘The Problem Child’ doesn’t wish to budge an inch from the same. Paul has already asserted that he wants to confront the biggest names in boxing, and it’ll be interesting to see whom he gets aligned with next.

For now, though, the YouTuber has to get past ‘Funky’ this weekend on Triller to line himself against even bigger opponents.
