In the modern age of boxing, bouts are fought outside the ring as much as they are fought inside. Every word boxers say and every move they make before the fight becomes the focus of public attention. Similarly, KSI’s trainer, Leon Wills, has taken his pick for the winner in the upcoming fight between ‘The Problem Child’ Jake Paul and Andre August

Recently, Jake Paul announced his highly anticipated fight against August, scheduled for December 15. The YouTuber-turned-boxer tasted defeat for the first time in his career against Tommy Fury earlier this year. Yet, he made a major comeback by defeating Nate Diaz. So, the buzz in the boxing world is in Jake’s favor. Leon Wills also echoed the same sentiment after he came up with a training clip of Andre August ahead of the fight next month.

Commenting on the clip, Leon bet on Jake Paul winning the fight in under five rounds. “Yeah, 20 racks on Jake stopping this guy under 5,” Leon wrote.

 

While Leon has to wait to see his prediction come to fruition, Jake Paul has expressed confidence in winning the clash. Meanwhile, Jake’s brother Logan Paul has expressed doubts about Jake’s move to fight Andre August who’s currently 10-1.

While people like Leon are sure about Jake’s win in the upcoming fight, Logan Paul has his doubts. During the recent episode of his popular podcast ‘Impaulsive,’ Logan expressed his concerns about Jake possibly taking on more than he can handle. He began by praising Andre, “This 10-1, he’s a beast, he hits hard, and he’s fast.”

Logan even acknowledged that a loss against Andre can ruin what Jake is trying to build. “What you’re trying to build for the rest of your life… I don’t like the optics of that,” said Paul.
