Given the circumstances, Jake’s boxing career is in danger of being put on hold if he suffers another loss. The younger Paul brother yesterday went into great depth in a video that was released to YouTube about his strategies against the MMA star.
“I am ready to show you guys the changes I have made in my own life. I want to show you guys how to come back from a loss and to beat somebody’s a**. If I lose again it will be back to everyday bro, no I am joking. I am not going to lose but if I do I will be a YouTuber forever. ” Jake said.
Even a year ago, Jake was in high spirits because his career in combat sports was going really well. By defeating none other than Anderson Silva, a member of the UFC Hall of Fame, the 26-year-old boxer extended his winning streak. The young boxer’s boxing career is in jeopardy, but he’s desperate to turn things around by defeating Diaz, who is making his boxing debut.
“I have a new life, new goals and new priorities. You will see a new and improved version of me on August 5. This next fight the rumours are true it is the legendary Nate Diaz. One of the baddest men on the planet. The beef is there. The s*** talk is there. There is no turning back. This is going to be a war.” Jake added.
