If not for anyone, then 2021 turned out to be a highly decorated year for the YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul. Winning all his fights this year, the young gun only has grown as a boxer in the sport. On top of this, his recent KO win over Tyron Woodley stunned everyone. However, the big question is, who is Jake Paul looking to face next?

‘The Problem Child’ often keeps the fans intrigued by his choice of opponents. Every casual, as well as hardcore follower of the sport, is looking ahead to see who Jake Paul wants to take on next.

Recently, Bavafa Sports, on their Instagram story, opened up on Paul’s keenness to take on a boxing veteran. In this story, they revealed, Paul asked his manager, Nakisa Bidarian, to set up a fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Chavez Jr. never seemed on Jake Paul‘s plans and his ‘hit list’. As a result, this news may shock many as the Mexican fighter is super-experienced and there’s really no matchup between the two. However, ‘The Problem Child’ often passes fiery statements against various athletes in the sport.

As a result, his hunger to face the veteran Chavez Jr. might come to life if he’s really interested in doing the same.

Also, Jake Paul might be keen to test himself against Chavez Jr., because the latter lost to the UFC elite Anderson Silva in a pro-boxing bout earlier this year. This bout turned into an embarrassment for Chavez Jr. and the YouTuber might look to do the same with him.

Can Jake Paul actually beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.?

Paul pulled off something astounding against Woodley. However, he might not do the same to Chavez Jr. because the Mexican boxer has been in combat sports for nearly two decades now.

He still has a long way towards glory, before he gets into a slugfest with seasoned veterans like Chavez Jr. and more.
