Jake Paul’s remarkable body transformation from Disney teen star to cruiserweight boxer as he prepares to take on Tommy Fury


Jake Paul has undergone a series of impressive changes over the past five years, altering the direction of his career entirely.

When he first began creating content for Vine in 2013, the young internet sensation was a mere skinny teenager.

Over a short space of time, his video views grew exponentially and led him to create a YouTube channel the following year, which became his main venture once Vine died.

As well as this, he joined Disney Channel show Bizaardvark playing the role of Dirk Mann.

However, it was announced halfway through the second series that he would be leaving, following the growth of his YouTube channel’s infamous reputation.

He told the Sun: “It was sort of, Disney and Jake Paul, two brands growing apart.

“And so it made sense. Ultimately, both parties are happier after that split.”

Coming out the other side of the Disney career in 2017, Paul pressed on with his individual YouTube channel, which today has more than 20million subscribers with more than seven billion views.

He delved into music and created the ‘Team 10’ brand, which took the platform by storm.

In 2018, his entry into boxing began.

While older brother Logan Paul took the main event stage in a white collar fight with KSI, Jake faced KSI’s brother Deji on the undercard.

He won by fifth-round stoppage and then, after seeing Logan turn professional for a rematch with KSI, was inspired to do the same.

Paul made his pro debut with promoter Eddie Hearn, facing KSI’s friend and training partner AnEsonGib in Miami.

Despite many believing Gib would provide him with a challenge, Paul scored three knockdowns and a first-round stoppage win.

He next moved to Triller for a second-round knockout of former NBA star Nate Robinson on Mike Tyson’s undercard, and then KOd ex-MMA fighter Ben Askren inside one round.

His most recent fight saw him edge past another former UFC champion in Tyron Woodley.

Over this period of time, Jake has undergone an impressive body transformation as he’s bulked up effectively and grown into his ‘man strength’.

He revealed to the Mail: “I’m training daily, sometimes six, seven days a week. I’m doing sprints, I’m jogging five, six, seven miles.

“I’m doing thousands of push ups, abs every day, neck exercises… I’m boxing, hitting the heavy bag, hitting the speed bag, I’m sparring 2-3 times a week against world champions, I’m doing yoga.

“I’m eating chicken and vegetables and cutting out all the bad stuff.

“I’m completely sober and I’m only allowed to have sex once a week!”

Paul has caused a stir in the fight sports world by calling out big names such as Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez.

He initially campaigned for the McGregor fight late last year, but has since resorted to taunting him following his defeats to Dustin Poirier.

And Paul told talkSPORT about Canelo: “Anything is possible – my goal is to become a world champion to laugh and say I did it.

“Ultimate fight would be against Canelo.

“Billy Joe Saunders got embarrassed… if I saw any of those guys (BJS or Avni Yildrim) in the street, it wouldn’t be pretty.”

Jake also made headlines for his clash with Floyd Mayweather earlier this year.

The YouTuber sparked a brawl with the boxing legend, ahead of his exhibition with Logan, by snatching his hat.

Now, inside the ring, Jake faces arguably his toughest test yet in 7-0 fighter Tommy Fury.

It will be Paul’s first fight against an ‘actual’ boxer but one that does seem hard to call.

what is for sure if that the 24-year-old will be in immense shape for the bout yet again – a far cry from the skinny physique of a Disney teen star five years ago.
