Jake Paul has cleared up a lot of rumors about himself over the years but the latest one regarding his boxing career has actually gone beyond his expectations.
While he has always understood that there will be criticism directed at him for his professional career, Paul hates the fact that he actually has to answer questions about the legitimacy of the results every time he steps into the martial arts. radio.
The latest controversy revolves around a supposed clause in his opponents’ contracts that says they are not allowed to knock Paul out of the match. How that could even happen remains a mystery but Paul countered those claims by raising the ante in his rematch Tyron Woodley by offering the former UFC champ an extra $500,000 bonus if he can win their upcoming rematch by knockout or TKO.
“There’s a rumor going around that everyone believes my fight is rigged or that I don’t allow my opponent to take me out of the contract,” Paul said during an appearance on the TV show. Time MMA. “It is not true. It’s absolutely a bull.
“Of course all these people will do is try to discredit me. Because when you’re at the top, that’s what happens. I just want to quell the rumors in [bud] and give it to my opponent – contractually, I’ll pay Tyron an extra $500,000 if he can take me down. It just stifles the rumors in [bud] and show everyone that all my fights are real, real, and will continue to be. “
As a social media influencer who became famous for his YouTube videos, Paul sometimes likes to be an internet troll, so he always has his detractors when it comes to social media. his boxing career.
Conspiracy theories are nothing new but Paul is quick to point out the serious ramifications that will descend on him if he really tries to influence the outcome of any of his battles.
“It is illegal to stage a war or to stage a war,” Paul said. “It’s illegal to have something like that because it’s cheating. Have resulted. You cannot change the outcome of a professionally sanctioned match. It is illegal. You will have to go to jail. The fact that people will say so, we just want to quell the rumors.”
The origin behind the rumor that Paul made his opponent promise not to knock him down may actually start with the boxer Bellator Dillon Danis, who might just be the biggest troll in all of combat sports these days.
Danis once told that story in his own appearance on Time MMA when he crashed into Paul trying to knock him down during a boxing match.
When Tommy Fury dropped out of their scheduled fight on December 18, Paul admitted for a brief moment he thought of Danis as a potential opponent but he lost interest in the idea pretty quickly.
“He was always on my mind,” Paul said of the MMA fighter. “It will be fun.
“But again, he’s a fat pig right now saying sh*t. insane, in jail, do whatever, cause a commotion. I’d love to take him down but I think it’s going to happen in the street, not in the ring. ”
For the fight he actually faces up front, Paul could have offered Woodley an extra $500,000 for a knockout but he didn’t intend to lose much less when he was detached from consciousness.
Instead, Paul hopes to correct his split-decision win over Woodley from September by putting the “Chosen One” to sleep in the rematch.
“The motivation was to prove to everyone that I could take Tyron down,” Paul said. “The last one wasn’t an individual decision and I’m going to get it done without leaving it to the judges and we’ll move on from there.”
