Fresh off a historic weekend of thrilling fights, Michael Bisping has shared his thoughts on Jake Paul.

In an appearance on the Throwing Down podcast, Michael Bisping trashed ‘The Problem Child’ and his role in bringing women’s boxing to the forefront.
"Let's not start putting him on a pedestal and saying that Jake Paul is the result for [Serrano vs Taylor]."

“He hasn’t been able to do anything for women’s boxing. Let’s not start putting him on a pedestal, and say that Jake Paul is the result for that on Saturday night,” said Bisping. “The real promoter involved there is a guy called Eddie Hearn. He’s the guy that’s making it all happen. All Jake Paul was doing was tagging along for the ride looking like an absolute idiot anytime he opened his mouth.”
Bisping went in on Paul for the mockery he faced leading up to the event.
“Eddie Hearn said it to his face, ‘you’ll never be a world-class boxer’. Then there was a Q&A on stage, and someone from the crowd said, ‘hey Jake Paul, do you have imposter syndrome?’ It was clearly an old guy from the voice that was asking it and then Eddie Hearn’s like, ‘that could be your next opponent’.”
Discrediting Paul’s claims of leading the movement for fighter pay, Bisping stated his delight at the ridicule.
“I just got a lot of enjoyment out of Eddie Hearn treating him like the absolute joke he is. God bless him, good for him. But he’s not spearheading this charge for more money for fighters and all the wrestling.”
