Throughout his boxing career, Jake never fought any current big names in combat sports; his opponents were mostly retired or below-the-line boxers. To date, the toughest opponent the younger Paul brother faced was the Spider.
So many combat sports admirers are not convinced by the boxing ability of Jake Paul; UFC lightweight fighter Paddy Pimblett is one of them. In a recent interview, the English MMA artist spoke about alleging that most of Jake Paul’s fights are fixed.
Though the Englishman admitted that Problem Child is evolving day by day and his recent fights are convincing, Pimblett still considers that there is a lack of intensity in Jake Paul’s fights.
“Jake Paul is actually not that bad now, even though I think his fights are fixed. I don’t think the Tyron Woodley knockout was fixed because when you get knocked out like that and you land face first, if you’re not unconscious, you’re going. You can’t help it; that’s a human reaction. But I seen an angle of a punch he hit Anderson Silva with the other day when he sat down, and he didn’t even hit him.”
