He said, “I can only talk about myself, not about other people, I am not here to criticise anyone. I talk by analysing boxing. I hope I can get a few million with Jake Paul. If he beats me, I’ll retire, I don’t get paid. I don’t want money if I don’t beat him. Retirement – not interested in his money if I do not win,”

“[The Pauls] generate a lot of expectations and money, a match with me would be good. They haven’t learned how to fight well and I can take advantage of that. Jake Paul can punch, but he’s not a boxer.” (h/t DAZN News)

A few days back, it was reported that Jake Paul asked his manager, Nakisa Bidarian, to set up a fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
