White made some explosive comments about the up-and-coming fighter during an appearance on the “Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson” podcast. White was the guest and sat for an interview with Tyson and co-host Zab Judah, who is also a former championship boxer. As the head of the UFC, White is known for having strong opinions about some of the greatest fighters in the world, and he did not hold back when Jake Paul’s name was brought up.
The most recent episode of “Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson” found the iconic boxer taking his podcast on the road for a special edition atop the new Circa Las Vegas casino and their exclusive Legacy Club rooftop lounge.
While talking about some of the fights Dana White is excited to see, Jake Paul’s name was mentioned (around the 4-minute mark) as he is preparing to take on former UFC star, Ben Askren, in a boxing match.
“Let’s be honest, Jake Paul isn’t a fucking boxer, this guy’s a fucking YouTube kid,” White exclaimed.
Mike Tyson, who also featured Paul on his podcast, stood up for the YouTube star and revealed that “He’s a great friend,” as did Zab, who claimed that Paul has “got hands.”
Dana White did not care and threw down a proposal:
“I hope you can bet on this thing because I’ll bet a million dollars that he loses this fucking fight,” he said.
The announcement definitely excited Tyson and Judah, who howled with laughter. It’s unclear if the match, promoted by Triller, will have betting options available.
