Ever since his win over Nate Robinson, Jake Paul has stirred the combat sports universe. He called out several notable athletes from MMA and boxing, including the former UFC double champ, Conor McGregor. Now, ‘The Problem Child’ is finally set to make a return to the ring on April 17 against an undisclosed opponent.
Triller’s fight club, which held the Tyson vs Jones exhibition fight, announced Paul’s return to the ring in the second quarter of 2021. This fight club, run by Ryan Kavanaugh, is a collaboration between Triller and Snoop Dog. They will look to eclipse the event with ‘The Problem Child’ set to headline an event featuring three undercard bouts, musical acts, and commentators.
Talking to PR Newswire, the ‘Problem Child’ said, “Thank you to Triller, Bobby, Ryan, and Snoop for giving me the opportunity to showcase my talent to the world. Given their leadership, I know the visuals, performances, and production value on this show will be unlike anything anyone has seen. Together, we will continue to break records!”
The YouTuber turned boxer is ecstatic for his return after his success in the last outing in November 2020. Though there’s no opponent lined up for him at the moment, Paul is ready to take any and everyone on.
The 24-year-old has a giant frame with daunting knockout power. He is 6’1” tall and has a magnificent reach of 76”. He has intriguing skill sets in the bag, but both of his wins have arrived over non-fighters.
However, Paul is on a career-high with his 2-0 track record, and will look forward to securing his third professional win on April 17.
‘The Problem Child’ goes inside the ring with a mentality to kill or be killed. This has helped him enormously to have an upper hand over his opponents.
Paul’s approach in this contest too will be worth a watch. And more importantly, his post-fight interview will be worth a watch if he puts an exclamation point on his performance in the squared circle on April 17.
How excited are you to see Paul back in action?
