Jake Paul, the controversial YouTuber turned professional boxer, has once again ignited a storm of reactions among fans and pundits alike. This time, it wasn’t due to his usual brash trash talk or flashy lifestyle. Instead, it was a sparring session with Adin Ross, a popular social media influencer known for his gaming content, that caught the attention of the internet. In this sparring session, we see Jake Paul pummeling Adin Ross relentlessly.

In the ever-evolving world of social media, spectators got to see the influencers enter the squared ring and face off. Now, the session being quite counterintuitive is a totally different thing. As usual, Adin Ross seems to have bitten off more than he can chew. If you recall, he recently had ‘fun’ bouts with Ryan Garcia, Dillon Danis, and even FouseyTube. What Ross hoped to achieve from these bouts is often up for debate, but we know one thing, and that is that the young influencer is a satirical punching bag. Fans, as usual, had something to say.

The video, which was posted to Adin’s YouTube channel, quickly went viral, but for the wrong reasons. The fans quickly noticed how Adin was embarrassingly beaten up and pushed into a corner. While some made fun of Adin, others were quick to notice how Jake Paul was extremely carefree about pummeling someone visibly smaller than him. 

Jake Paul, who has the upper hand, has not only the current expertise and training in combat sports but has previously faced professional MMA fighters, and boxers of a much higher caliber seemed to have a significant advantage in terms of experience and skill. For many fans, this bout felt like a mismatch.

One fan was quick to point out how quickly Paul was able to obliterate someone in his weight class.

Another user made the assumption that this was his “first win against someone under 35”, insinuating that the fun spar was a way for Jake Paul to show his significant upper hand.

Another user highlights the fact that sometimes influencers exaggerate things for the sake of clout, which can be embarrassing.

A user remarked about his respect for the gamer, seemingly mocking Adin for picking on someone way bigger than him.

Another user acquiesced in making a similar comment.

The trolling went both ways as well. This user spared no one from admonishing ‘The Problem Child’ for not picking someone his own size.

On the flip side, there were those who saw the sparring session as nothing more than a fun and light-hearted exhibition. Regardless of which side fans fall on, it’s undeniable how much savvy Jake Paul has for generating buzz around him. His ability to grab attention both in and out of the boxing ring is quite fascinating and has contributed to his growing popularity, or rather, in his case, infamy.
