Talking about rifts with fellow celebrity boxers, the only rivalry that strikes every boxing lover’s mind is Jake Paul’s rivalry with KSI.

Both the Youtubers have taken wild verbal digs at each other, but recently, KSI was full of praise for his rival ‘The Problem Child’. In his recent video released on YouTube, the Brit made a chart wherein he placed celebrities and exhibition fighters.

In that, he placed Jake Paul in ‘God Tier’ column and said, “Jake Paul, yeah obviously we’re gonna have to put him at God tier. He is pretty active right now. I’d love to put him at, ‘should retire’, but let’s be honest, I’m very real with everything I do and yes, Jake Paul is the guy right now.” 

Jake Paul predominantly rose to fame after his win over the ex-NBA star, Nate Robinson. After this win, he called out enormous bigwigs of combat sports, and a few months later, he even confronted one such opponent on his hit list, and that was Ben Askren.

‘The Problem Child’ handed a beating to the former UFC welterweight. Now, he’s all charged up to face Tyron Woodley in a pro-boxing bout in August 2021.

Can Jake Paul vanquish Tyron Woodley?

Ever since ‘The Problem Child’ had his first outing in the boxing world, his only aim was to go down as a true hotshot. And for that, he knew that he’d have to lock horns with some of the biggest names of boxing and MMA.

Till today, he’s rightly following his path and is constantly aligning himself for his fights against true bigwigs. That said, Paul will put forth his A-game to beat Woodley as he will look to go 4-0 and remain relevant in the boxing world. This will help him attract even bigger opponents/fights from hereon.

What do you draw off KSI’s ‘God Tier’ comments on Jake Paul?
