The 2-0 boxer spoke on the ‘True Geordie Podcast’ on YouTube and explained his choice of attire on that night. “All of these people in this, in this stadium are the ones on Twitter who are saying, ‘F**k Jake Paul’. That’s why I wore that chain out there. Because it’s like, I’m here to prove tonight to all of these people that I can’t be beaten and all of y’all might think you know me, but y’all don’t know me.”

With these comments, Paul explained the choice of wearing the chain. Clearly ‘The Problem Child’ felt he was unfairly criticized for his actions, and as a result, embraced the hate. Furthermore, the chain was a sarcastic dig at those who used that sentence to show their disdain for Paul.

When did Jake Paul wear the chain?

Though Paul’s comments explained why he wore the ridiculous chain, hard-core boxing fans will not know when this escapade happened. So at what fight did Paul wear the ‘F**k Jake Paul’ chain?

‘The Problem Child’ wore this chain for his first-ever boxing fight in 2018 when he took on fellow YouTuber Deji in a white-collar boxing event. It was all part of the rivalry between the Paul brothers and the Olatunji brothers from the UK.
