Jake Paul has been one of the most popular celebrities on social media over the past month and it’s been mostly due to his feuds with various celebrities. Earlier this month he had a viral moment when he stole Floyd Mayweather’s hat. That was at the press conference at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami for Mayweather’s upcoming boxing exhibition match against Jake’s brother, Logan. The two were initially supposed to fight in February, but it was postponed.
Jake Paul Inks TV Deal For Upcoming Fight
Despite a lot of online drama, Jake is still handling business. Jake recently inked a deal with Showtime Boxing, which would air his next fight. Deadline reported that Jake’s advisor Nakisa Bidarian revealed this to ESPN. The announcement comes as Jake is preparing to reveal who his next opponent will be.
“Jake is proud of the events he participated in with Triller and appreciates the opportunities they afforded him,” Bidarian said to ESPN. “Jake is excited to continue his boxing career with Showtime Boxing. Fight announcement coming soon.”
Jake Last Fought In April
Jake Paul had a highly anticipated fight on Triller in late April against former UFC star, Ben Askren. This ended up not being much of a fight at all as Jake made quick work of Ben by scoring a TKO victory in the first round. Many viewers on social media expressed their disappointment after waiting hours for Jake to fight, only to end up seeing a horrible result that night in Atlanta at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Tekashi 6ix9ine Has Been Calling Out Jake
Plenty of other celebrities want a piece of Jake in the ring, and one of them is Tekashi 6ix9ine. Jake posted a video of someone telling him that 6ix9ine wants a fight set up between them. At first, Jake said he wouldn’t fight him and then said “get the f*cking rat traps.” He also believes that he could knock 6ix9ine out. 6ix9ine clapped back by saying that Jake is on steroids and mocked Jake’s security guard who reportedly died recently.
The Game Also Invited Jake To A Fight
In addition to 6ix9ine, The Game is another rapper who called out Jake on social media. The Compton native took to Twitter to tag both Jake and Logan to say that he and his little brother would like to fight the two in Los Angeles. This would be in the middle of the street with no gloves used or any money involved. Jake sees The Game getting knocked out in this situation, though.
“Yerrr, @jakepaul @LoganPaul …. meet me & my little brother downtown LA in front of staples center and let’s just fight head up fades…. no gloves, no money needed…. just on some me & my brother will fuck you & your brother up shit!!!!”
