The stupendous Tokyo Olympics 2020 has finally concluded and, like every Olympics, the American contingent performed well this time, too. Team USA won a whopping 113 medals in total. Following their stellar display, the YouTuber turned boxing sensation, Jake Paul, had some words of wisdom for the American team. ‘The Problem Child’ even invited the pole vault athlete, Katie Nageotte, for his upcoming fight.

Taking it to his Twitter, Paul wrote, Amazing stat.. U.S. women won 66 medals, comprising a record 58.4% of the American total.. that’s insane!! One of those women is Gold medalist @ktnago13 from Cleveland! Katie if you are reading this I hope you will come to my fight in Cleveland as my guest on August 29th.”

Over the past few months, ‘The Problem Child’ has made significant statements with his antics in the boxing universe. Now, he’s all charged up to take on his toughest test to date in form of the ex-UFC champ, Tyron Woodley. More than anyone else, he seems ready to roar in the ring once again and he wants this bout to be special in its own way.

That said, he’s looking to bringing in the Olympic champ, who’d grace this bout with her presence. And eventually, Paul will be keen to honor Nageotte with a win over Woodley.

Can Jake Paul really get past Tyron Woodley?

As he’s developed a substantial hang of the ring, ‘The Problem Child’ will walk in as the favorite. On the flip side, Woodley will bring in his classic MMA experience and will look to give Jake Paul a stern fight. It will be interesting to see who among the two men comes out on top to secure a vital win.
