Speaking at the media day yesterday Paul had claimed that he had CTE (Chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a serious brain condition that is caused due to repeated blows to the brain. Speaking of which he said : Jake Paul \u201cIt\u2019s a dangerous sport. That\u2019s why when people question my dedication to it, I\u2019m showing up every single day, I\u2019m putting my mental health on the line, my brain is on the line. I\u2019ve gone and gotten brain scans and have early signs of CTE, but I love this sport and I wouldn\u2019t trade it for anything else. \u2026 I\u2019m a fighter and people will see that. Whether it\u2019s after Saturday night or a year from now. They will see that I\u2019m a fighter.\u201d However, a lot of fans and even fighters accused Paul of spreading false information about CTE. https://twitter.com/lionheartasmith/status/1382881543018844163 In the wake of this Paul took to Twitter to apologize for his comments. 'It's a very serious condition I should not have misspoken about' - Jake Paul https://twitter.com/jakepaul/status/1383071237941960708 "I wanna retract my comments made about CTE as it relates to me and my medical history. It\u2019s a very serious condition that I should not have misspoken about", Paul wrote. There is no proven evidence that brain scans can detect early signs of CTE, and that is exactly why Jake Paul was mocked at. A lot of people claimed that he just said it to sound cool. As for his boxing, Paul has been putting in the hard yards and has been focusing on distance control to see off his first ever combat sport opponent in Ben Askren. He will be looking forward to beating 'Funky Ben and move further up in the boxing world.
