In his short yet attractive boxing run, Jake Paul has pinned himself as one ultimate boxing sensation. He’s also engaged in several rivalries with fighters across boxing and the MMA vertical. That said, the YouTuber turned boxing star never fails to spare his opponents and always rolls out some fiery words to counter them.

Recently, he took a dig at his arch-nemesis, Dillon Danis, who’s been on his hit list for a long time. Speaking exclusively to Brian Custer, Paul evaluated his chances of competing with Danis and revealed where he’d actually fight his rival.

“I think it could happen, but again, it’s like he’s not a striker. So you know after I beat Tyron, it’s like wow he just knocked out a 5-time UFC champion who has knockout power. Now he’s going up against some Jiu-Jitsu guy who isn’t a striker like it’s a hard sell for that fight. I think I’m going to handle that one in the streets,” said Paul.

This weekend, ‘The Problem Child’ will lock horns with the former UFC welterweight king, Tyron Woodley. This fight is regarded as his first big test in boxing because Woodley is an MMA veteran and he certainly knows what it takes to beat any given opponent.

That said, Paul is eager to roll out a performance for the ages in this fight, through which he can shut his naysayers. Also, he’ll look ahead to face a devastating striker if he gets past ‘The Chosen One’. Because Paul principally feels it’ll be hard to sell his fight with Danis.

Dillon Danis responds to Jake Paul and his comments

‘The Problem Child’s above comments reached Danis and he couldn’t hold himself back from commenting on the same. Taking it to his Twitter, Danis shared Paul’s video and wrote, “i’ll put any about of money i dance on his head in any kind of fight this b*tch is all talk.”

This is not the only time when Paul and Danis have exchanged some verbal blows with each other. In the past, too, they’ve gone all out against each other.

Looking at this situation, it’d be interesting to see if Paul gets past Woodley and eventually looks to battle Danis.
