Undefeated YouTuber Jake “The Downside Youngster” Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) confronted off together with his subsequent opponent, five-time UFC champion Tyron Woodley, on the historic fifth Road Gymnasium in Miami on Thursday forward of their summer time conflict on SHOWTIME PPV.


“I instructed him I’ll pay you double your purse when you beat me. However when you lose, it’s a must to pay your purse to my charity. He lacks confidence. Why wouldn’t you’re taking that guess as a fighter when you knew you have been going to win? To make double the cash? That is the most important payday of your life and you can also make double? Put your cash the place your mouth is.

“He’s a very good striker. He’s recognized for knocking individuals out. However I believe after I beat Tyron, individuals should put respect on my identify. However that’s not what I’m right here for to be trustworthy. I already know the way good I’m. I do know that that is going to be one other straightforward struggle. That’s why SHOWTIME is in enterprise with me. You’re taking a look at the way forward for boxing.

“He’s not so good as me and he’s enjoying catch-up. We see holes in his entire total recreation and he has attempt to discover ways to field. He’s stiff. Muscle tissues don’t struggle and he’s going to be out of his factor. That is boxing. This isn’t MMA. You possibly can’t discover ways to field on this period of time. Now we’re going to point out him the reins. The Disney child goes to beat up the five-time UFC champion of the world. It’s going to be hilarious.

“I haven’t even proven my combating skills in any respect. I haven’t even made it previous two rounds in my skilled profession. I haven’t been hit within the face. No person may even see if I’ve a chin or my inside combating recreation. I haven’t even warmed up but. And by the best way, I’m the kind of fighter that will get higher the longer the struggle goes on. I get higher in sparring so I haven’t even been capable of heat up and I’m excited to point out my potential if he could make it out of the primary spherical.

“I’ve predicted each single one among my fights. I stated Ben Askren, first spherical. I stated Nate Robinson, first spherical. He received to the second. I stated in my first professional struggle, first spherical. I don’t suppose Tyron will make it out of two rounds. You won’t even get to see my boxing skills on this struggle to be trustworthy.”


“I’ve all the time wished to field my entire life however by no means did it. That is my alternative. This can be a child that’s a power-puncher. He’s received lots of power behind him. That is going to be an enormous platform to showcase what I can do in a boxing ring. And he’s a fighter. He can struggle. On the finish of the day, you’ll be able to watch him and the timing, the rhythm and the footwork is there.

“He hasn’t fought very lengthy. However the little motion that I’ve seen was clear. Good protection. Nate was speeding him, he protected himself and he got here out of his shell and cracked him.

“He’s making an attempt to downplay his potential. He’s a fighter. Don’t let him play you by saying, ‘I’m only a YouTuber.’ Final week, he was a fighter. When he was saying no person wished to struggle him, he was a fighter. You’re not a YouTuber anymore. You’re not on Disney. It’s been a very long time since he was on Disney. That’s like me saying I’m only a collegiate wrestler and I don’t punch individuals.

“I simply wish to have enjoyable. I wish to practice onerous. I wish to get higher. I wish to go on the market and do issues on my phrases and be the one to name the pictures. I wish to go on the market and make historical past. I all the time make historical past. I’ll not all the time get the credit score for it however I’m all the time the primary. Fighters all the time hit me up asking what they need to do, what they’re doing flawed. Now it’s time for me to go do it myself.”
