Sean O’Malley believes Jake Paul’s first professional boxing loss benefited his fighting career. 

In February of this year, Paul suffered a split-decision loss against Tommy Fury inside the Diryah Arena in Saudi Arabia. ‘The Problem Child’ had his momentum halted, and fans questioned his skills as a boxer. 

There’s no doubt that Paul would’ve preferred to maintain his undefeated record. With that said, UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley thinks the YouTuber-turned-boxer likely benefited from the lessons learned from the loss. O’Malley had this to say during an appearance on Bradley Martyn’s Raw Talk podcast

“He probably learned a lot losing to Tommy [Fury]. That was probably one of the best things for his career, losing to Tommy. It wasn’t a bad loss, but it was a loss that probably stung. He probably got back to the drawing board and learned a lot, and he does find that right hand.”

On August 5, Jake Paul bounced back from his loss against ‘TNT.’ The 26-year-old took on MMA superstar Nate Diaz and secured a unanimous decision win after ten rounds. Paul’s latest win extended his professional boxing record to 7-1, with four wins coming by KO/TKO. 

Sean O’Malley thinks Jake Paul and Logan Paul will never fight each other

Jake Paul and his brother, Logan Paul, have taken different paths in their combat sports journeys. Over the past few years, fans have wondered if the Paul brothers will ever fight in a boxing match to determine who is better. According to Sean O’Malley, the must-see matchup likely won’t happen.

During the same podcast with Bradley Martyn, O’Malley had this to say about the Paul brothers potentially fighting each other: 

“Yeah that would be massive. I don’t think they’ll ever do that. I would never want to fight a teammate that I kinda grew up training with and stuff. I wouldn’t wanna do that. There’s no way I would fight my brother, even if he was skilled. There’s just no f*cking way you’d wanna hurt. There’s no chance, in my opinion.”

Before considering a fight against his brother, Logan Paul has business to take care of in the co-main event of Misfits Boxing’s “The Prime Card.” On October 14, the WWE superstar will compete in a six-round boxing match against Dillon Danis. 

Paul has previously fought in three boxing matches. He started with a majority draw against KSI as an amateur. In November 2019, KSI settled the draw by earning a split-decision win in a professional fight. Logan’s only other fight was a no-decision exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in June 2021.
