Paul’s next fight was against Ben Askren who is a former MMA fighter. Jake Paul mas Quick business of Askren as he knocked him out in the first round. Many people didn’t respect the legitimacy of Jake Paul’s boxing career but after his third fight, I realize that Paul has skills and a chance of becoming a talented fighter in the sport.
This recognition didn’t go unnoticed as Jake faced his biggest challenge yet as he was prepared to take on Tyron Woodley and his fourth fight and his boxing career. This would seem to be Jake Paul’s largest fight as Tyron is a former UFC Martial artist and a former welterweight champion. This seems to be Jake Paul‘s biggest fight yet as he was able to win this fight through a split decision against Woodley.
It is estimated that Paul has made roughly $40 million through his endeavors in the sport of boxing. A lot of people believe that Paul is only interested in the money aspect of the sport rather than the actual love of the game. Despite his reasoning for fighting, he is still winning the fights and the money is just a repercussion of winning. Paul has done a great job at widely promoting his boxing fights and using his platforms to increase financial situations.
Paul’s next fight is against Tommy Fury, the brother of Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champion.
