Triller and Jake Paul are no longer working together, but they had a great run. That event where Paul KO’ed Ben Askren in less time than it took to walk to the ring made millions, but Mike Tyson isn’t buying the numbers Triller touted.
Jake Paul and Triller boasted 1.5 million pay-per-view buys. That is a ton of cash and this was brought up during a recent episode of Hotboxin. Tyson discussed this with Ali Abdelaziz and Henry Cejudo as Iron Mike started with: “They didn’t get that many PPVs.”
Ali Abdelaziz then responded, “No, they’re lying. There lying is a form of promotion right. But you can’t lie like that. Because when you lie like that, I’m gonna be like, my fighters, you have to pay Jake Paul $40-$50 million because you said 1.5 (PPV numbers).”
Jake Paul has not responded to Mike Tyson and Ali Abdelaziz’s comments on the matter. He still counted plenty of money and that’s all that matters to him.
Paul left Triller and is now with Showtime Boxing. His next opponent has not been confirmed yet, but Tommy Fury is begging for The Problem Child to accept his challenge.
Do you believe Jake Paul’s fight really did 1.5 million buys? Sound off in the comments!
