Jake Paul has made a habit out of creating new headlines on a daily basis, and his unique set of skills was on full display against Tommy Fury this week.
YouTuber Paul will put his undefeated boxing record and reputation on the line against the Gypsy King Tyson’s younger brother on December 18 in Florida.
The 24-year-old made his first foray into the combat world with a KO win over KSI’s younger brother Deji during an amateur boxing fight in 2018.
Since then, Paul has managed to get under the skin of almost every notable name in the game but what has been said? talkSPORT.com has the details…
The 50-0 legend faced Logan Paul in a boxing exhibition, but it is Jake who ended up rattling the 44 year old’s cage most.
During the press conference for the fight, Jake and Mayweather would square up before Jake said “got ya hat!” and ran off with Mayweather’s bit of kit.
He didn’t get far and a full on brawl ensued backstage as a result with Money even overheard claiming he would ‘kill’ Paul over his stunt.
The youngster later alluded that Mayweather planned to follow through with his threat during an episode of the NELK Boys’ FULL SEND podcast.
“He was trying to get me killed behind the scenes, for sure,” Jake said.
“He was calling, like, ‘the gangsters,’ because we were in Miami at the time. He was, like, calling the ‘street people,’ ’cause my security is tapped into the street people.”
“They were like, ‘Yo, you guys gotta be f**king careful. He’s trying to do something,’” he continued. “So, whatever the f**k that meant, or means. … I was like, ‘Alright, if this is how I die, this is how I die.’”
The WBC champion has performed a U-turn on his opinion of Jake following the announcement’s of the latter’s fight with his brother Tommy.
When asked about what Paul has brought to boxing Tyson said: “He hasn’t really done anything. I’m waiting for this master of sales to do something.”
Paul responded by referring to previous comments by Tyson praising his work in the sport before Tyson delivered the killer line.
Tyson said: “That was a few months ago, now I think you’re a w*****.”
Tyson and Tommy’s father also traded several shocking insults with Paul during the feisty press conference on Wednesday.
The pair traded barbs, with the YouTuber claiming that Fury Sr is living off his sons achievements, calling him a ‘nobody’ and tell him to ‘suck my d***’.
Fury hit back with taunts that he’d ‘beat the s***’ out of him if he ever went to America and that he ‘doesn’t have a d*** to suck’.
He also said: “You can thank your lucky stars I’m banned from your country, because I get you I’d slap you. …
“You wouldn’t be man enough to stand in the presence of me … I’d put you over my knee and spank you like a five-year-old kid.”
Jake Paul had to work hard to get anything out of the Notorious.
First, he unsuccessfully called out the UFC star before he put together a controversial video in which he insulted McGregor’s fiancée Dee Devlin and claimed to have proof of funds for $50 million to tempt the Irishman to fight.
When this garnered no response, he filmed a follow-up in which he taunted the the two-weight champion’s training partner Dylan Moran.
He then hired a plane to fly a banner over Miami Beach which simply read: “Conor McGregor is scared of Jake Paul.”
McGregor was eventually asked about the campaign ahead of his second fight with Dustin Poirier in January.
“You know, that is what it is,” he said, before avoiding using his name.
“We’ll see what happens, he seems like a confused little kid to me, to be honest.
“He’s willing to get in there, I don’t know what’ll happen, it’s not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.
“I know, I have a teammate [Dylan Moran] – him and Dylan have been back-and-forth, so you never know.”
Paul reignited the feud this month by saying: “I think that fight happens in the next 36/48 months for sure. It makes financial sense.
“I don’t have a message for Conor. At this point, he needs me more than I need him.
“He’s a f***ing loser, drunk motherf***er running around, doing all this crazy s***.
“The guy’s a mess, so like I said – he needs me more than I need him.”
On the heels of Jake Paul’s crusade to fight McGregor comes his issues with the UFC president Dana White.
When it was somewhat joked that double UFC champion Amanda Nunes might fight him, Paul’s response was ‘nobody knows who she is.’
White said he was ‘I’m thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his a** out’ and the Brazilian would put Paul in a coma.
Paul revealed in the summer that he believes his feud with the 52-year-old will end when he knocks the UFC president out.
He also donned a bald cap, black UFC t-shirt and green training jacket when he went as White for Halloween last month.
White responded to Paul’s claims and joked that he’s in the right age-range for a scrap with the former Vine star.
“It actually makes sense,” White told MMA Junkie at the UFC on ESPN 30 post-fight news conference.
“I’m 52 years old. I’m in the age bracket of guys he fights, so yeah, I could see him wanting to fight me. All he fights are 50-year-olds.
“Let me tell you what,” White said. “Get in line. There are plenty of people who would like to assault me. Get in line. It’s a long f*cking line, buddy. You’re going to be waiting for a while.
“No, it doesn’t bother me. This is the business we’re in. I say it all the time about the fighters, too. We are not in the nice guy business. This is a very mean business. I say many mean things about people, too. It’s just part of this game. It’s all good.”
The Mexican icon has been against Jake and his brother Logan from the get-go insisting they are disrespecting the sport of boxing.
The feud reached new levels when fans – donning Jake and Ben Askren’s faces on their shirts – invaded the ring after Alvarez’s win over Avni Yildirim.
Canelo’s reaction was stern and swift as he told them to ‘get the f*** out.’
Paul commented on the incident a few days later suggesting that the champion is an old hater, apparently.
