YouTube personality turned boxer Jake Paul has been on top of the world since defeating Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club on April 17th. He is well known to play the role of a very annoying and punch-worthy character and taking part in big money matches that break records.
After a lot of teases and speculation, it was finally revealed that Jake Paul is set to square off against Tyron Woodley in a boxing match for Showtime Boxing on August 28th. The match will be a big-money affair as is the case for all of Jake Paul’s fights.
Jake Paul has added a new element when it comes to combat sports and that cannot be denied. While speaking to TheMacLife, Jake Paul was asked if there will be an increase in the number of UFC fighters fighting out their contracts with the UFC so they can enter free agency and fight him.
Jake Paul certainly believed that will be the case very soon and stated that there will be a new movement for fighters as Paul is leading the way in changing and innovating the fight game.
“A hundred percent. I think there’s going to be a change, a movement; we’re innovating the fight game. And you’re starting to see that, you know. This is a showbusiness. And a lot of people just like to focus on the sport aspect of it, but it’s all the way around – You’re going to see fighters start to post content more. You’re going to see start to talk sh** to people more. And, you know, this is just the start of something massive. And I’m excited to help lead the way.
It is certainly hard to argue with what Jake Paul said as he certainly is bringing about a change in the world of combat sports. We will have to wait and see just how different the fighting game will be in a couple of years.
