The 3-0 boxer spoke on an episode of Logan Paul’s ‘Impaulsive’ podcast. ‘The Maverick’ addressed the Conor McGregor comparisons and said, “And bro, this Conor conversation is funny too. What’s the stat?” He then added, “10th round, but I think I landed more punches… either I landed more punches than Conor did, or Floyd hit Conor more than me. One of them.”

Jake Paul explains why stats mean nothing

The comments from the YouTuber turned boxer will draw heaps of criticism again. While Logan Paul did take a better approach to the fight than McGregor, it is impossible to compare an exhibition event to a professional bout. Moreover, Logan Paul was wrong, and the stats show McGregor did better in a fight with higher stakes.

However, Jake Paul is undeterred by the stats. He explained why they mean nothing by saying, “I saw a lot of people posting the stats. Like the side-by-side, punching stats… They made you look like you didn’t do as good as people thought, right?”

“But, in the Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson fight when I posted the side-by-side stats, the stats said that he hit me like eight times, and I only hit him like four times. Bro, so f**k those f***ing stats. Whoever’s counting that is a f***ing idiot.”
