Following his spectacular knockout win, Jake Paul has vowed to further his MMA career and he plans on continuing with the sport.
Jake Paul wants to be boxing’s biggest star
Jake Paul has big plans for his boxing career. He plans to be the biggest star in boxing and stated in an interview that he could be the next Floyd Mayweather.
“My career goal was to do exactly what I did. To have an undeniable victory and steal the show. And prove to the boxing world, who has doubted me for the past six months, that I’m a pro boxer and I’m here to stay,” Jake Paul said.
“When you put those 10-ounce gloves on me, I’m vicious, I can hit. I’m a real dog. When these MMA fighters come into the ring, they’re gonna meet ‘The Problem Child.’ They’re gonna meet me. And I’m here to make millions of dollars and sell millions of pay-per-view and I’m gonna be one of the biggest stars. I think I might just be the new Floyd [Mayweather].
“I’m putting the work in, and I understand why people don’t want to accept me yet. But I’ve had two flawless victories, and I’m really dedicated my life to this. I have an $8 million mansion in Calabasas that I haven’t stayed at for six months. I haven’t even been home because I’ve been in Las Vegas training in a little tiny house, two-a-days, pouring my heart and soul into this. So if people don’t respect that, then I don’t know what they’re gonna respect. It’s an uphill battle for Jake Paul, it always has been. I’ve fought for everything in my whole entire life. People hate me, people talk sh-t about me, but I’m still here.
“I feel like I didn’t get to showcase my skills, honestly, so I’m a little upset with that,” Paul said. “I would fight. My right hand always kind of hurts after these fights, last time I had to do recovery on my right hand because I was just penetrating his skull, but same sort of thing with this. I’ll fight again ASAP. I think I just cemented myself as one of the biggest prizefighters, so someone’s gonna have to come with the bag or I might do my own promotion. So we’ll see.” (H/T – BoxingScene.com)
