“I’m Losing Interest”- Dr Disrespect No Longer Cares About Jake Paul’s Boxing Career

Published 08/31/2021, 2:12 PM EDT


The 2-time streamer of the year, Dr Disrespect, has officially climbed off Jake Paul’s hype train. Jake has made a fortune in his previous career as a YouTuber and internet celebrity. A few years ago, he made the jump to boxing and has now competed in 4 exhibition matches, but he never fought against a proper boxer.

This key reason has now killed the hype and Doc is no longer concerned about things to come. He clarified that lackluster fights and the hype machine have certainly become quite stale at this point. According to a report by SVG, Doc is really bored with these celebrity boxing events.

“I’m losing interest, I guess that’s what it is… I liked the idea initially, I liked the hype and all this, but like, now that we’ve seen some lackluster sort of fights … How much more can the momentum continue on? At this point, it’s about the influencer and celebrity status of this fight, right?”

Dr Disrespect does not see any value in exhibition boxing matches

The streamer enjoys the actual high-level competition of combat sports, where the best fight’s against the best. These exhibition events that feature a retired MMA fighter have lost their charm. The major attraction behind such events was to see a novice boxer against a trained MMA fighter with no professional boxing experience is no longer viable.

The celebrity status of such events serves as a major attraction, but it has nothing to offer to the sport of boxing. It seems like even Doc has understood this point, and he is no longer interested in these weird events.

The last two fights of Jake Paul’s career featured retired MMA fighters. Moreover, Jake’s performance against Tyron Woodley was not at its best that he has showcased in the past 3 bouts. Even though he came out with his hand raised, but the fight in itself wasn’t as entertaining as the marketing efforts stated.

Will the fans ever stop falling prey to these events? It is a question that can only be answered if the new era of exhibition matches continues to survive.
