The undefeated professional boxer, Jake Paul is going to face another undefeated professional boxer, Tommy Fury is one of the most highly anticipated boxing matches of this year on 18th December at Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida.

Jake Paul is a former Youtuber who turned himself into a professional boxer and Tommy Fury is the younger half-brother of Heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury. Recently Fury’s father and legendary boxing trainer, John Fury revealed that Paul turned down VADA testing before this boxing match.

He also claimed that Jake Paul should be banned for using PED’s and his son is going to defeat him even after all this. But the former UFC two times title challenger, Chael Sonnen backs Jake Paul’s for not going under VADA testing.

Talking about Paul refusing to get tested in his latest Youtube video, Chael Sonnen says, “He Jake Paul, now within four fights, has the leading family of boxing having their youngest protégé begging and jumping through hoops to get on the docket with him. I mean, there’s a real brilliance in everything that Paul did. But what Paul would not do is agree to VADA.”

“VADA stands for Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency. Now, you take that however you want. And quite frankly, I don’t think you’re going to get a different result if Paul p**s in the cup or if I p** in the cup for him. I will only share with you – Nobody should do VADA. VADA should not have the doors open. It is the most ridiculous thing. Why would you ever, ever offer to put yourself under scrutiny? That is a fool’s move.”

Chael Sonnen claims volunteering for the VADA test will make Jake Paul look a complete fool

Chael Sonnen has faced multiple failed dope tests during his MMA career and he is one of those fighters who faced multiple suspensions due to using PED’s. He believes Jake Paul did the best thing by refusing for this test and weighing on this conflict, he added,

“Why would you ever volunteer to put yourself in a position that doesn’t have anything positive? You don’t go into VADA and it’s a lottery system, and they’re going to give you an extra 15 grand. You don’t go into VADA, and you pass it, and they have any level of media or credibility where they can break into SportsCenter at the top of the hour and announce to the world that you passed.”

“You get absolutely nothing for it, and you potentially get suspended if you did agree to do it. I’m only sharing this with you because I know how it looks for Paul. And I know how it looks for other people who publicly refuse to do VADA. You are still under state sanctioning. You are still under the promotion sanctions should they want to step in and do it. There still is a testing level. You’re just not volunteering to go an extra step – And only a fool would!”
