Jake Paul has never lost a boxing match and holds a 66.67% knockout ratio. Jake has won against former UFC champions Tyron Woodley, Ben Askren, and Anderson Silva.
In his last bout at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona, the former Disney star defeated the Spider by a unanimous decision, who was the toughest opponent Jake Paul has ever faced.
Throughout his boxing career, the younger Paul brother never fought any current big names in combat sports; his opponents were mostly retired or below-the-line boxers.
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.
“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.”
Jake Paul didn’t take the comment positively; he responded to that comment and challenged Baddy to fight him in the ring and offered him $1M if the current UFC lightweight could defeat him.
“Dear Paddy Pimblett, you claim my fights are rigged? Stop calling the GOAT Anderson Silva a criminal and come spar me. You win, I give you $1 million. I win, you join the UFA.”
