Jake Paul has signed a deal with PFL, which will help him conduct the MMA fights for himself. Jake Paul has revolutionized boxing by garnering a lot of attention towards the sport. Most combat sports fans are driven more toward MMA fights, due to the inactivity and probability of the fighters pulling out more often in the sport of boxing. But Paul changed that, as he kept on delivering fights to his fans without canceling them. Paul is now reportedly thinking about trying his hand at MMA. Recently, ‘The Problem Child’ also showed interest in fighting both Muhammad Ali‘s grandsons in their respective fields.

When both brothers heard about Jake Paul’s statements regarding them, they did not think it made sense for them to fight him. However, in the same watch-along show, Jake Paul appreciated the amazing TKO victory of Biaggio Ali Walsh at PFL 2. Meanwhile, both brothers, individually, talked about Paul’s callout and expressed their views on it.

The Walsh brothers speak publicly about Paul’s offer

Biaggio Ali Walsh was fighting in an event recently, where he secured the win by a knockout and later, he talked about Jake Paul calling him and his brother out. He stated, “Nico fights at 162 lbs and I fight at 155 lbs, I have no problem with Jake Paul but he should fight someone his own size.” He also said that he doesn’t understand why Paul looks out for opponents who are smaller in size than him. According to Biaggio, if Paul fought at Cruiserweight in Boxing, he should fight in the same weight class in the MMA as well.

At the same event, Nico Ali Walsh was also present and he was completely oblivious to Jale Paul’s statements. He found it funny that the YouTuber-turned-boxer called him out for a fight. But he humbly rejected his offer as he wasn’t interested in fighting anybody who was not a boxer, as he already had to prove himself in front of the world. And he doesn’t want to go through the same process again, after fighting Jake Paul. He said, “I want to stick with fighting boxers and getting to a title one day.”
