Jake Paul has a new goal and this time, he is ready to risk his life for it. In the realm of digital entertainment, Paul stands out as a prominent figure. The saga began in 2018 when his older brother, Logan Paul, entered the YouTube boxing scene against KSI. Although Logan faced defeat, it set the stage for the Paul family’s venture into professional boxing.

Though his encounter with Tommy Fury proved to be a formidable challenge, the boxer is confident in his capabilities. Having experienced a mixed record of 1-1 in 2023 thus far, the YouTuber-turned-boxer is aiming to end the year on a positive note by securing a victory in his upcoming bout against Andre August. While appearing in an interview with MMAfightingonSBN, Paul revealed his plans for the future.

Andre August asked the fighter about the number of fights he plans to engage in next year. To this, Paul said, “For sure two-three and staying on that cadence…. staying sharp and growing.” That is not all. Paul plans on clinching the world championship and has decided to give it his all for it. After having stepped foot inside the ring, Paul’s hunger for more has only grown.

Paul spends all his time in his gym, bullying himself to get better. In fact, the best. He has removed all distractions and adopted a tunnel vision to reach his next milestone. “I’m gonna become a world champion or die trying. So, it’s kinda you know all units forward and just working towards that goal.” Paul is steadily trying to build his standing and experience in the boxing industry. This might have him compromising on the financial aspect of it all.

Despite ‘The Problem Child’s past success in selling out large venues like the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia and the American Airlines Center in the US, reports suggest that ticket sales for his upcoming bout against August have fallen short of expectations. The event, set to headline the Most Valuable Prospects IV under Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions (MVP), diverges from his previous endeavors. Notably, this match won’t be available on pay-per-view and will be hosted in a more intimate venue.

Speculation surrounds the decision to eschew pay-per-view, with the prevailing belief pointing to Andre August’s relative lack of star power. Jake Paul and his team seem to have opted for a non-PPV approach, streaming the fight on DAZN instead.

It’s theorized that this strategic shift is part of Paul’s broader plan to construct a more authentic boxing resume, choosing to face lesser-known opponents and gain experience against dedicated boxers rather than relying solely on high-profile MMA matchups. The effort and mind that Paul is putting into the fight is quite evident. Do you think he will be able to stay true to his words? We would love to hear your views in the comments below.
