Jake Paul has been quite delusional for some time, but his latest comments have people thinking that he might be suffering from CTE.
The 3-0 YouTuber-turned-boxer will have his next fight this weekend against Tyron Woodley, an ex-MMA fighter who was UFC welterweight champion. He believes his fame and notoriety will propel him towards legendary status.
Jake told the Last Stand Podcast: “I am on a trajectory to become the biggest prizefighter in the world.
“I think that’s so special and people don’t get to follow that journey very often.
“As it stands, for the kids, I look like Mike Tyson.
“Your grandpa had Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, your dad had Floyd Mayweather, this generation has Jake Paul.
“If they wanna see a highlight reel knockout, they wanna be a part of the viral conversation – so far, that’s what I’ve delivered.”
Paul made his pro debut in January 2020 when he battled fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. He then moved to Triller where he scored a viral knockout of former NBA star Nate Robinson on Mike Tyson’s undercard. His last fight was another knockout of ex-MMA fighter Ben Askren inside one round.
“I put on a show, I do things different, I have a mascot,” Jake continued.
“The fight night shorts that I’m wearing August 29, you’ll never have seen anything like it.
“I think it will be something that people and boxers will copy for years to come.
“So I’m just coming in with a different flavour, a different sauce.
“I speak my mind, I don’t care if people like me or not, and I’m good at this sport.”
