Referring to the financial benefits, Jake Paul said, “You look at any other sport. Besides, like the Olympic track, the Olympics really where you have one chance. Football, you get repeated, you can learn from your mistakes. You can go at it again, you can have a bad play and get another chance to do another drive or you have a bad shot. In boxing, there is not that which is why you make so much money in it and why it’s so entertaining. Because there’s no excuses.”
