Jake Paul wants a ‘real’ challenge.
The “problem child” has arguably taken their biggest win to date and has maintained their undefeated record in 2022. This October, Paul (6 wins) faced his third former mixed martial arts (MMA) champion in boxing. But unlike past opponents Tyrone his Woodley and Ben his Askren, former Ultimate Fighting his Championship (UFC) middleweight kingpin and greatest fighter of all time Anderson his Silva Paul’s challenge to the 2018 earned him fame for his phenomenal hitting.
Paul defeated Silva by unanimous decision (see highlights) and is waiting for his next move. Another legendary UFC fighter, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, was recently asked if he entertained the idea of boxing Paul, and replied: “Can you say no to millions of dollars?”
“[Cerrone] did you call me What did he say?…Damn, is he out of his UFC contract?Interesting,” Paul told Schmo.“I mean, I don’t know. I’m a little tired, do you understand what I’m saying?
“So I’m just trying to get young people in there,” he concluded.
Cerrone retired from MMA in July 2022 after losing a second-round guillotine submission to Jim Miller in a 2014 rematch. Still interested in making a comeback, he retired and started his acting career.
Paul is without an opponent at the start of 2023, but has recently shown interest in Serone’s past opponent Nate Diaz. As of November 2022, Diaz has officially qualified to do as he pleases in free agency after his 15-year career in the UFC.
