Imagine being compared to a default video game fighter. Lethal blow right? But that’s what a fan saw Andre as.

By juxtaposing Paul and Andre’s record, a user saw the latter as the underdog. However, they did not seem that glad about Problem Child taking the lead here.

A fan compared Andre’s skills to their grandma’s. The result? The grandma would win.

Another fan continued their attacks on Jake Paul. There is a popular belief that Paul fights opponents whom he knows can’t sustain against him. The fan suggests that the Andre fight is a result of such cherry-picking.

This year was the busiest for Problem Child. He’s fought two fights already and remains on the precipice of the third. In February, he registered his first loss against Tommy Fury via a split decision. Months later, he fought MMA fame, Nate Diaz. After having over Diaz via a unanimous decision, he accelerated toward his third opponent, Andre August. In comparison to Fury and Diaz, August remains relatively unknown and an easy fight. Yet, Paul considers this fight to be riskiest of all. boxing
