Earlier today, Paul responded to the clip stating, “Shawn Strickland, you’re embarrassing for trying to stop sneako like that.” He highlighted that Strickland couldn’t even drop the influencer while giving his best, asserting he was a horrid fighter who only picks inexperienced boxers. So, he offered to “fly you to PR, and we can fight on camera…if you win, I’ll give you $1 million.” However, if he loses, Strickland has to get Paul’s ‘Betr’ tattooed on his body.

In a following tweet, Paul claimed, “I hate bullies. I was bullied and then was the bully sometimes in my YouTuber days. But now, all my energy is focused on Boxing Bullies and helping the youth.”  Yet, in another tweet, the YouTuber-turned-boxer asserted, “Constantly talking about killing people, calling them scumbags or wishing them to die bc they don’t agree with your opinion reeks of insecurity, not of being a confident man.”
