American YouTuber Jake Paul is at it again. This time he is looking to fight another super-star in the world of combat sports. The internet sensation will fight Nate Robinson on the under-card of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr on November 28. However, he seems to have revealed where his future lies and who he wants next.
Speaking to BT Sport on the Lockdown Knockdown series, Paul was asked about his desire to fight the MMA stars. He replied, “These MMA guys, they go to practice every day and they have to spend their day focusing on one thing. Elbows, knees, grappling, jiu-jitsu, take-downs, Take-downs defense, striking, leg kicks, so there’s a lot for them to work on.”
He then added, “When I’m going into the gym for the past three years, all I’m focusing on is boxing. So come over to my arena and you’re going to get your as* beat”.
Paul followed this up with one of the most shocking call-outs we’ve seen so far and said, “Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is will happen. It will happen. Yea, 100%. People think that’s crazy, ‘oh Jake’s going to get his as* beat’… We’ll see. We’ll see!”
Now his brother is saying he will beat Conor McGregor in a boxing fight. Despite this, at least Jake is challenging him in a boxing match rather than an MMA match. Either way, many fans will feel this is destroying the sport.
Jake is the favorite to beat Nate Robinson when they meet in the ring. There are videos of him knocking out his sparring partners. Considering this training footage, it will be a tough fight for Robinson.
Despite this, it is still ludicrous to think that McGregor would step into the ring to face a YouTuber; especially when he is rumored to fight Manny Pacquiao next. Only time will tell if this is a genuine thing or not.
