Mellen then asks, “So Jake, you wanna announce your next fight?” to which ‘Paul’ replies saying, “Actually yeah I do. Yo Muhammad Ali, I’m coming for you. In the ring, in the streets,” Mellen interrupts him to remind him that Ali is no more. ‘Paul’ then continues, “In the graveyard! You can’t hide from me forever Ali.”

This led many fans to call Davidson two-faced. Following that, Davidson also berated Paul while he was commentating during the fight. Davidson called Paul, “a piece of s***”. Davidson also sniped that Paul and Askren “both suck, but at least somebody’s gonna get hurt”. Paul took offense to these comments and later went on his brothers’ podcast and asked for Davidson to be banned from commentary during boxing fights.
