Jake Paul is certainly one of the most well-known names in the world of professional boxing right now. Jake Paul proved all of his doubters wrong as he was able to last 8 rounds against Tyron Woodley, who many believed would destroy The Problem Child in the boxing match last year.
Jake Paul also defeated Tyron Woodley in their rematch as he knocked out Woodley with a solid right hand during the sixth round. Many fans were under the impression that the boxing match was staged.
Jake Paul announced recently that he would face MMA legend Anderson “The Spider” Silva on October 29th last year at Gila River Arena in Phoenix, Ariz., with the fight finally taking place on Saturday. Jake ended up defeating Anderson Silva as well.
Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold seeks to end Jake Paul’s boxing exploits by stepping back into competition. He left the UFC after a loss to Paulo Costa in Aug 2022 and was expected to retire, but has now set his sights on a return.
“I’d like to beat up all these little f—king punks that think they can box,” Rockhold told Helen Yee earlier this week. “Especially one in particular. Jake [Paul] would be f—king great. The UFC kinda released me just to go f—king hunt that kid down.
“I asked for the release, we were talking about after our boxing session at Churchhill [Boxing Club] with Pete Berg and he said, ‘Ah, yeah. I’ll ask Dana [White].’ And he said, yeah, Luke can go f—king fight that kid. Go beat his ass. I said, okay. I will. So, I was released to beat your f—king ass. The dog is here. The bounty man. The hitman. I’m f—king here. Answer the f—king call.”
“We all know Jake. You ain’t s—t,” Rockhold told The Schmo in another interview earlier this week. “We all know Tommy Fury ain’t gonna make it to the fight so I might as well just f—king skip around the gym and just be ready to f—king tap dance on that kid’s f—king face come Feb. 25.”
