Jake Paul was one of the highlight in the sport of boxing in 2021. The YouTuber turned boxer made the most out of his every boxing outing and he only became a sensational star in the fight business. Lately, he put on his career-best performance against the former UFC welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley.

In this fight, Paul adapted a tactical approach, and he later landed a fight-ending shot to keep his undefeated stint. Since then, he’s been in the news for obvious reasons, and he recently was a part of an interview with Graham Bensinger.

Here, ‘The Problem Child’ came up with an unusual statement to garner fight fans’ attention.

And I think you know dark thoughts come into your head of like yo, this, this is like I don’t want to be here on earth anymore,” he said.

Jake Paul had many naysayers, and he still has many doubters who diss him off for his boxing prowess. Yet, ‘The Problem Child’ marched ahead with his boxing stint this year, to only spread his roots extensively in the sport.

This year, he locked horns with Ben Askren, the former UFC welterweight. Defeating him in just round 1, the Ohio native marched ahead to square off with Woodley. ‘The Chosen One’ gave a stern outing to Paul in their first fight, however, the 24-year-old still won the fight via a SD.

Lastly, he met Woodley again to produce a top-notch performance.

2022 seems even bigger for Jake Paul

Paul had a dream boxing run in 2021, as he fairly proved his case to one and all. However, with the momentum he’s in, it seems 2022 might be even better for ‘The Problem Child’.
