Jake Paul says Jorge Masvidal is welcome to test his luck in the boxing ring.
Paul (3-0, boxing) will headline Showtime Boxing’s pay-per-view (PPV) match against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Tyron Woodley (19-7-1, MMA ) Battle Place at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio and broadcast on FITE. Gamebred predicts his American Top Team (ATT) teammate Woodley Paul will be unconscious, but The Problem Child has a different perspective.
“He’s going to eat those words very quickly,” Paul told MMAMania.com and SB Nation’s Combat Culture. “This comes from a guy who just passed out in an embarrassing way.”
Masvidal previously told The MMA lesson‘s Ariel Helwani, “If Jake wins, damn it, I take my hat off to him, I was wrong, I have no idea about fighting. But the chances are that Woodley will blow him away. “
“So yeah, maybe he doesn’t know that much about fighting,” replies Paul in this new interview. “He’s been in this game for a long time. he has a lot of fights. he has a lot of experience. I respect him. I think Jorge did a lot for this sport. I think he’s a good guy, but alas, my friend, it’s a new era. No matter how much experience you have, it’s about the quality of the experience. Tyron and Jorge have the same manager so of course he will say so. Of course, he will be on his boy’s side. But you know, maybe Jorge is next to be honest. After I take this guy off, he can step forward right away. I’m basically just showing these UFC champions and these great UFC strikers can’t really make it and at least they can’t keep up with my level. ”
Woodley is a former UFC welterweight champion, but Paul was also called up by a former UFC light heavyweight champion – Rashad Evans.
“I don’t even know if I know him. Was he a welterweight? ”Asks Paul. “He’s old, isn’t he? I do not know. I do not see it. It has to make sense to me on so many levels to fight someone. I want to increase the level of my competition after every fight. If I take out this five-time UFC champion, where do I go? “
One possible history-rich boxing match is a fight between Paul and fellow YouTuber colleague KSI. The English internet sensation made a split decision against Jake’s older brother Logan Paul in November 2019. Jake also has an amateur technical knockout (TKO) in front of KSI’s younger brother Deji Olatunji. Paul is still open to the fight against KSI; However, he says that the gap between them is growing day by day.
“If we had made it then it would have been a much better fight in my opinion. He would have come in with these overhand rights and such. Maybe I wasn’t used to it. That would still have knocked him out. Definitely, ”says Paul. “My brother is a bit shy, he was afraid of these shots. I’m going straight into it. I can get away with this right hand that has knocked everyone out so far. It blew KSI’s best friend. So I would have knocked him out then, it would have probably only taken a few laps. If we fight now, it will be a one-round fight. A semicircular fight. No chance that he will get out of the first round. “
