After Paul knocked out Ben Askren within the first-round in April, he referred to as out a number of UFC fighters however not too long ago he and Kamaru Usman have taken pictures at each other. They each are across the similar weight and though the welterweight champ is named a wrestler, his putting has gotten higher so Tyson believes Paul vs. Usman must be subsequent.
“I wish to see that sh*t,” Tyson stated on his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast (by way of LowKick MMA). “It’s twice or 3 times as a lot cash within the UFC. So, how might he flip it down?”
Mike Tyson does have some extent as Usman would possible make more cash within the boxing match towards Paul than he does within the UFC. Askren was vocal about his battle towards Paul was the most important payday of his whole profession, but, it’s unlikely the UFC would enable Usman to field the brash YouTuber.
Though it will be a highly-anticipated battle, Usman has stated he’s not too keen on boxing Jake Paul. Nonetheless, he says he would do it if the cash is true.
“I don’t essentially look after the battle. I don’t look after it. I don’t actually entertain it, truthfully,” Usman stated to ESPN’s Ahora o Nunca. “However there’s a whole lot of work that I’ve put into my sport to get to the place that I’m in. After which if you see these guys are available in and simply, ‘Oh, I wanna problem him. I wish to problem that man, that man, it’s virtually disrespectful.” I feel the test must have eight zeroes in it. If there’s eight zeroes in entrance of the test, then for certain, we’ll contemplate it.”
For now, Jake Paul only in the near past signed with Showtime Boxing and is awaiting his subsequent battle announcement. It is going to possible be one other huge title as he continues to construct up his profession. Usman, in the meantime, doesn’t have his subsequent battle booked as he’s coming off a KO win over Jorge Masvidal in April.
