After bursting out on the boxing scene, Jake Paul has become the most controversial figure in the entertainment industry. Paul made his professional boxing debut last year. Two months after his brother Logan Paul fought with fellow YouTuber KSI, Jake stepped into a boxing ring. He took on a British YouTuber AnEsonGib. ‘Gib’, whose real name is Ali Al-Fakhri, had prior boxing experience. But when the final bell rang, it was Jake Paul’s hand raised in victory. 

 

During the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, a promotion asked Jake to take on retired NBA star Nate Robinson. It was an enormous opportunity for the YouTuber because they set this match in the undercard of Mike Tyson’s comeback bout. Paul stepped up and knocked out the former Boston Celtics player.
