After hitting his mark in the boxing world, Jake Paul is interested in making his dominating reign inside the MMA cage.
Speaking in the press conference of his rematch with Tyron Woodley, Jake has said he believes if he can do it in a boxing ring, he can do it inside MMA ring.
He quoted his wrestling background and said AKA Javier Mendez and Team Khabib would train him.
“People seem to forget that I was a state wrestler, Division 1 in Ohio, one of the hardest wrestling states,” Paul said “I don’t see why if I can do boxing at this high of a level that I couldn’t do MMA at this high of a level.”
He further said “I’m gonna go get coached up by Jav Mendez, Team Khabib, and that’s that. They’re down, 100 percent.”
Woodley immediately responded and cut off Paul’s comments to put him up to an MMA fight.
“You a lie, Let’s do MMA then. Let’s do this MMA after we do this boxing so I can elbow you in the head and knee you in the nugget.”
Woodley and Paul are scheduled to fight in the boxing ring on 19 Sep, Saturday in Tampa, Florida.
