Fans share receipts: just minutes before blaming loss on sickness, Jake Paul claimed he was A-okay

Jake Paul has gone a long way in just three years. He’s gone from being an American YouTube personality to full fledged boxer. Paul suffered his first defeat in the professional boxing ring at the hands of British youngster Tommy ‘TNT’ Fury. In a grueling match, ‘TNT’ outworked Paul and won via split decision.

Controversy followed the outing, with Paul insinuating during his in-ring interview that he disagreed with the judges’ scorecards.

He also suggested that he had been dealing with health issues leading up to the event. However, a video posted on social media appears to show Paul contradicting himself on this point before and after the loss.

Despite the setback, Paul has vowed to learn from his mistakes and return to the ring stronger than ever. He has called for an immediate rematch against Fury, who has expressed his willingness to face him again. The contract for yesterday’s bout reportedly has a rematch clause attacked so it’s likely that it will happen.

During his in the ring interview, Paul claimed that he had been dealing with health issues in the lead-up. However, his comments to Radio Rahim before the match seemed to indicate otherwise. This has led to speculation about whether Paul was truly suffering from health problems or simply making excuses for his loss.

In any case, Paul admitted that he didn’t perform at his best on the night, saying that he “felt flat” and that his energy levels were off. He also mentioned an arm injury, which may have affected his performance.

“Tonight, no injuries, no problems… We’re coming in a hundred percent?”
Paul replied by saying:

“Yes, sir. You’re getting Jake Joseph Paul.”

The video’s second part shows a snippet from Paul’s in-ring post-fight interview with Rahim, wherein ‘The Problem Child’ claims he was dealing with health issues leading up to the event.

Jake Paul said:

“I felt flat. I got sick really bad twice in this camp, injured my arm. So, it wasn’t my best performance.”


Despite his claims of low energy levels, Paul was quick to clarify that nerves were not the cause of his underperformance. He stated that he had been nervous before but didn’t feel nervous against Fury. Instead, he suggested that something was just “off” with his energy levels.

Despite the loss, Paul remains a popular figure in the boxing world and has already set his sights on a rematch with Fury. It was interesting to see a card be main evented by these two up and comers while Badou Jack won his cruiserweight world title in the co-main event.

In the meantime, fans and critics alike will be watching closely to see how Paul responds to this setback. Will he address his health issues and energy levels? Will he change his training regime or strategy? Only time will tell.
