The Youtuber turned boxer will face Tyron Woodley in a boxing match this Sunday. Prior to one of the biggest fight of his boxing career, Paul appeared in an interview with Ariel Helwani.

While being asked about being a baby face or heel, the 24-year answered by saying, “I’m like Robin Hood. And I think I’m the good villain. I’m confusing, that’s it, but I’m just me I don’t try to be the good guy. I don’t try to be the bad guy. It’s just when we talk about fighting and sh** talking who I think I can beat. I think I can be all these guys. So I’m going to say I think, I think they are all soft.”

He added, “So I’m loud-mouthed in that sense because I’m confident in my ability as a fighter. But when I’m outside of the ring, I have a family; I have friends that I take care of. I have a purpose, you know, to grow the sport. And I’ve always wanted to create a foundation like boxing bullies. And I’ve always done good things. Just people never like to highlight it. The media always just focused on the negative Jake Paul and the bad Jake Paul. Because that gets more clicks. So I just do me and people interpret it however they want it to interpret it.”

‘The Problem Child’ states he is a different guy out of the ring. The latter also thinks that it is the media that keeps him in the bad picture by highlighting his negatives.
