In a span of less than a year, Jake Paul has alarmed the boxing world with back-to-back knockout wins. The 23-year-old is still fresh from his KO victory against Nate Robinson on the undercard of Tyson vs Jones. However, he is already setting targets for the future. From UFC star Conor McGregor to Youtuber KSI, ‘The Problem Child’ is open to facing umpteen celebrities.
That said, Jake Paul believes that he replicates a similar aura to Floyd Mayweather in recent times. In the post-fight press conference, he spoke about several scenarios of his boxing journey. Furthermore, he cited his ultimate goal in the sport.
Reflecting on his recent win and the 2-fight old boxing career, Jake Paul said, “My career goal was to do exactly what I did. It’s to have a undeniable victory and steal the show. And prove to the boxing world who has doubted me to the past six months that I am a pro boxer.”
He added, “I am hear to stay. When you put tat 10 oz gloves on me, I am vicious. I can hit. I am a real dog and when these MMA fighters come into the ring, they are gonna meet the ‘Problem Child’. They are gonna meet me.”
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old has also aimed at bagging big paychecks. While his internet and music career has already blessed him with millions, Jake wants the same from boxing.
He continued, “I am here to make millions of dollars, millions of pay-per-views. I am here to be one of the biggest stars. I think I might be the new Floyd (Mayweather).”
After a stellar night in the undercard of Tyson vs Jones, Jake Paul has called out the likes of Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, and Ben Askren from the combat world.
Meanwhile, he is also looking at his elder brother Logan Paul as an option for an in-ring square off. The tide doesn’t stop there since Youtuber KSI is also on the 23-year-old’s radar. Thus, we can expect the ‘Problem Child’ back inside the ring soon. What do you make of his comments?
