Jake Paul has impressed Brit promoter Frank Warren with his exceptional surge in the boxing community. They can now work together to host the potential Tommy Fury fight that fell off from happening this year. That said, Paul’s marketing and promotional tactics have also caught Warren’s attention. While ‘The Problem Child’ has a lot to prove inside the ring, he has clearly reflected his superstardom by hosting back-to-back high-volume fights.

In a chat with IFL TV, Warren said, “Him [Jake Paul] and Floyd Mayweather, brilliant promoters I mean. Tyson Fury, another one. They are great promoters. They you know get behind the shows but Jake Paul you can’t knock him in that.”

“As a promoter and as selling a fight and selling himself, he is in the top three in the world. I mean there’s no doubt about that.”
