From both the brothers, Jake Paul has been more active as a boxer. He’s beaten the likes of Tyron Woodley, Ben Askren, Nate Robinson, and Ali Eson Gib. His most recent fight was a rematch with Woodley, which he won by knockout. His brother, Logan, has fought against Floyd Mayweather and popular YouTuber KSI.

Both fighters extensively publicize their fights and trash talk their opponents in order to generate more buzz for their bouts. Many people, including WWE legend CM Punk, feel they do it the traditional pro-wrestling way.

CM Punk weighed on what he thinks about the Paul brothers. Punk told ESPN Sports Nation,” I think everything’s entertainment. I think some people conflate being a fighter with being an entertainer, but when it makes dollars, it makes sense. And what the Paul brothers are doing, I think for the lack of a better term, it’s old-school pro wrestling, right?”

“They’re putting themselves on the line. I’ll never criticize in a negative way or fashion anybody who makes the walk, anybody who trains their ass off… The bottom line is making money. If you’re making money, you’re technically not really doing anything wrong,” he added.

Jake Paul wants to fight Jorge Masvidal next

In an episode of Logan Paul’s YouTube channel, IMPAULSIVE, Jake Paul made Jorge Masvidal an insane offer for a single fight.

 “Masvidal, I got a offer for you right now. Five million dollar guarantee, plus a percentage of pay-per-views. That’s the most you would ever have made as a fight, ever,” said ‘The Problem Child’.

Jake Paul and Jorge Masvidal have been beefing with each other for quite some time now. However, Masvidal is currently under a UFC contract which was renewed just a few years ago.

He still has a couple of fights left on his contract, before that it is highly unlikely for Paul and Masvidal to fight. The only way this could take place is if Jake Paul comes to the UFC to fight Masvidal, which is also very improbable.
