- Jake Paul took another jab at Conor McGregor ahead of his fight against Hasim Rahman Jr.
- “The Problem” child has sent a message to his doubters once again
Jake Paul is already slated for a boxing match against Hasim Rahman Jr. next month but he just can’t seem to stop talking about Conor McGregor. In his recent rant on the former UFC two-division champ, “The Problem Child” said McGergor will start taking him seriously, and possibly even duck him, once he’s done mauling his upcoming opponent.
Conor will be scared
According to Paul, he’s down to fight McGregor anytime and the only problem is UFC boss Dana White. In the meantime, he’ll knock out Rahman Jr. first and after that, the YouTube star is certain “The Notorious” will be scared to fight him.
“If he’s not scared, I’m ready whenever,” Paul said of McGregor on WFAN Sports Radio’s Carton & Roberts. “But he has his boss Dana White that’s in control of him, so he can’t make his own decisions,. Even if he wanted to fight me, Dana would have to approve it. I’m my own boss, so I can make my own decisions and can fight whenever I want. … After I knock out Hasim Rahman Jr., Conor will be like, ‘Oh wow, this kid can really fight.’ That’s probably going to scare him away from fighting me.”
On the right path
For those who don’t know, Paul’s opponent, Rahman Jr. is a professional boxer who has been fighting in the pros since 2017. He has a decent record of 12-1, with six wins coming by way of knockout.
Ahead of the fight, “The Problem Child” reiterated that his next fight is no joke and though some still doubt it, what he has been doing is what champions do in real life.
“I’m a professional boxer, no matter how you slice it,” Paul pointed out. “I’ve got to prove that on Aug. 6 going up against a professional boxer. But I’ve knocked out UFC champions, superior athletes, sparring in the gym against professional boxers on a daily basis. This is the start of a long career, and I plan on becoming champion of the world one day.”
Will Paul be able to pick up where he left off and stun Rahman Jr. with another sensational KO? We’ll find out on Aug. 6.
