Jake Paul met YouTuber FaZe Dee in the ring and laid his buddy out flat.
In the past few years, Jake Paul has gone from former Disney channel star to YouTuber to boxer. What started out as a joke to many, Paul saying he would take over boxing, has turned into a reality. He is now one of the more popular fighters on the planet and his strategy of facing former UFC fighters seems to be working out perfectly.
Paul is rolling so far in his fight career, having won his first six pro bouts. He is making a lot of money and is showing a lot of progress along the way. Now he is even starting to get his fellow YouTubers in on the action.
Jake Paul knocks down YouTube star FaZe Dee in a sparring match
Recently Paul made a call to another UFC fighter to come and spar with him. He sent an invitation to Paddy Pimblett to join him in Puerto Rico and spar him for one million dollars. The offer was made following criticism by Pimbeltt about the credibility of Paul’s fights. Pimblett made his own counter offer but the pair have yet to meet up. He had another body stand in for him during his training instead, YouTuber FaZe Dee.
Dee posted some photos and a video that showed Paul knocking him to the ground. In the caption, he says, “Safe to say that MF got hands.”
Since Paul’s debut, there has been a huge uptick in celebrity boxing matches. Paul is still looking for his next bout but has made a public call to former UFC fighter Nate Diaz. Diaz, who is recently a free agent seemed to be keen on the idea but no official bout has been set at this time. Paul is coming off his last win over former UFC champion Anderson Silva, a bout that many thought would be the first real test for him.
