Jake Paul reveals he spoke to Francis Ngannou about joining Most Valuable Promotions

YouTuber Jake Paul confirmed he’s pursuing Francis Ngannou to join Most Valuable Promotions, his company.

The company has already signed in undisputed champion Amanda Serrano, who is probably considered one of the finest female boxers in the world. In addition, Paul signed 112-0 female boxer Katie Taylor and 19-year-old Ashton Sylve.

Jake Paul wants to recruit Ngannou as a multi-disciplinary combat sports athlete for his promotion. Jake Paul intends to represent Ngannou in both boxing and MMA in the future.

Francis recently ended his connection with the UFC and gave up the Heavyweight championship in order to pursue other, more lucrative career prospects for himself. He has previously discussed the possibility of facing Tyson Fury, while Deontay Wilder has already stated his desire to face Francis in the future.

Jake Paul disclosed his intentions to perhaps sign Francis Ngannou in an interview with TMZ Sports. He stated the following:

“We have talked. The Most Valuable Promotions team, we talked to Francis, and we think we can do a great job for him. We share the same vision on a lot of things. Hopefully, Francis sees this as well but regardless, we’re always gonna be there to support him. I’ve been working on something in MMA. Francis is a great guy and I think there’s a lot of opportunities for us together.”

Paul recently parsied McGregor in a tweet, saying: “Boxing fans should learn from MMA fans to support fighters. McGregor is 1-3 in his last four fights. Choked out, knocked out. His opponent is 1-3 in his last four fights, knocked out and choked out. But it’s a massive fight and the fans don’t care one bit.”
