Dana White was very confident in Ben Askren’s chance against Jake Paul. He told Mike Tyson on Hotboxin’ that he was willing to put up $1 million against Paul, and Snoop Dogg took that bet. After Paul defeated Askren, White said the bet was never legit.
While making his big announcement for his next fight, Jake Paul threw shade at Dana White. Paul will battle Tyrone Woodley for Showtime Boxing on August 28th. If Dana White mentions a bet this time around Jake Paul hopes that he will be a man of his word unlike last time.
“Maybe this time Dana White will actually be a man of his word and put his money on his former champion instead of trying to undermine my success like a jealous ex.”
Dana White did threaten legal action against Jake Paul and Triller for talking to UFC fighters. Now Jake Paul has another former UFC Champion to deal with in the boxing ring.
It should be noted that Jake Paul is already the betting favorite when it comes to the odds. Dana White might not want to place such a high dollar amount on Paul losing this time.
This is an interesting situation and the Problem Child’s antics might just continue as we get close to the fight. We’re hoping for another stunt on the level of GOTCHA HAT, but any kind of hype from Jake Paul is bound to garner plenty of attention.
