Jake Paul just did an AMA (Ask Me Anything). Here, he talked about topics such as pursuing MMA, the best boxers on the Youtube scene, and his thoughts on Dana White.
Paul is going to face Tommy Fury in the ring on 26th February in Saudi Arabia. It is his first outing against an actual professional boxer.
The “Problem Child” had notable responses to several of the questions that he received on social media.
One user asked him if he’ll be doing an MMA matchup after the Fury bout. He replied to this in the positive but didn’t give an exact timeframe. He said that no pro boxers have ever done MMA (which is not true) so he wants to break that stereotype.
“At some point for sure. MMA fighters have gone into boxing but no boxer has ever crossed over to MMA.” he wrote in response to the question.
A user asked Paul to name the best boxers in the Youtube scene while excluding himself. To this, he stated the following list:
- Logan [Paul]
- Salt Papi
- Slim [Albaher]
His odd first choice is his older brother Logan Paul, who has a lackluster record of 0-1-1. His two boxing bouts resulted in a draw and a loss, both to KSI.
Another user wanted to know about Jake Paul’s easiest victory.
To this, he hilariously replied by posting a picture of Ben Askren alongside one of Napoleon Dynamite. Paul defeated the former Bellator and ONE champion by TKO in just two minutes.
Paul replied to another fan asking him about his most difficult opponent by writing “my mind”.
Someone also asked Paul to describe Dana White with an emoji. He had a darker response to this one.
He uploaded a picture of the UFC president wearing a shirt with the caption: “KEEP YO P*MP HAND STRONG”.
Here, Paul just took a shot at White for recently slapping his wife on video.
