Jake Paul has entered countless verbal tussles with bigwigs of boxing and MMA. He has used this as a massive opportunity to become a renowned name in the combat sports universe. Until now, this strategy has worked wonders for him. It seems to be progressing well as he has developed a feud with the GWOAT Claressa Shields.

Over the past few days, many fans asked Claressa Shields whether she’d fight her foe, Amanda Serrano, on Jake Paul’s undercard in the near future. Shields answered all of these questions and took a dig at ‘The Problem Child’.

She tweeted, “DON’T GET IT TWISTED! The question was “Would you fight the Undercard of Jake Paul like Amanda Serrano” my answer was “don’t disrespect me, No I would not fight the undercard of him, I listed my accomplishments & let it be known NEVER WILL I EVER AND JAKE PAUL WOULD FALL TO ME”

Amanda Serrano made her last ring walk on Paul vs Woodley’s undercard. Fighting on the undercard of such an unusual event, Serrano displayed her skills before a massive audience. Even before that bout, she was regarded as one of the finest female fighters on the planet. Hence, fans were eager to see her take on Claressa Shields.

While Shields didn’t turn down that bout, she revealed that she would not fight on the undercard of a Jake Paul event. Hence, as Shields has indirectly begun a rift with the Ohio native, it’ll be interesting to see where it goes from here.

However, Shields’ comments on the YouTuber won’t really be liked by hardcore Jake Paul fans, and perhaps, ‘The Problem Child’ himself.
