Jake Paul is hogging the limelight after torpedoing Nate Robinson (debutant) in only his second match of his professional boxing career. Having dominated the first round, Jake Paul landed a hard right hook completely flattening the Ex-NBA star in the second round.
The win seems to have given the popular YouTuber a much needed confidence-boost and he is currently ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’, calling out the likes of Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, fellow YouTuber KSI and most importantly the ‘Face of the Fight Game’, Conor McGregor.
“I want to take out KSI and Dillon Danis and Ben Askren” – Jake Paul
Speaking to SiriusXM boxing, Jake Paul said, “I want to take out KSI and Dillon Danis and Ben Askren, and some of these guys first. But, Conor McGregor’s going to get it eventually. People think that’s a joke but no other fighter is calling him out with this big of a platform. I have the skill to take him on. You know, I’m sparring people that have sparred him before. We’re on the same level from a boxing standpoint and our talent gap is less than what Floyd Mayweather’s and his was. The fight just makes sense.”
Jake Paul is currently 2-0 in his professional boxing career having made his debut earlier this year against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, beating him via knockout in the very first round. Since, Jake recently revealed that he has been training with the sparring partners of Caleb Plant and Canelo Alvarez, he definitely means business. It will be really interesting to see how good a boxing career he can carve out for himself.
Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is right now busy with preparations for the Dustin Poirier fight at UFC 257. Having lost to the great Floyd Mayweather in his one and only boxing bout, he even recently proclaimed that he had plans of taking on another boxing great, Manny Pacquiao. It remains to be seen how Conor responds to Jake’s claims; he might probably even ignore it. But, one thing is for sure – if Jake Paul continues his marauding form and sets his juggernaut rolling; a call-out then, might even unnerve the likes of “The Notorious”.
