Donald Cerrone says Jake Paul is legit, and a good boxer despite what many seem to think.
Paul has taken the combat sports world by storm since he entered boxing in 2020. He scored a knockout win over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and then knocked out Nate Robinson. After his second fight, he turned his attention to MMA fighters as he knocked out Ben Askren, and beat Tyron Woodley twice, including one by KO.
After the KO win over Woodley, many weren’t sure who he would fight next but he then took on Anderson Silva and won a decision. Now, he does not have his next opponent set but Cerrone says Paul is a legit boxer and has talent.
Donald Cerrone on Jake Paul
“The Jake Paul phenomenon is kind of crazy, it’s got everyone calling him out,” Cerrone told Thicc Boy Studios. “It’s kind of like the big Conor push. I feel like that’s happening with Jake Paul. Everyone wants in, and I don’t see why they wouldn’t, that’s a big money fight. You can take away (from him). Everyone is saying those are rigged fights, and I think he’s hitting hard. I really do think those are legitimate shots and strikes, and he’s been practicing boxing, and he’s whipping their asses. I don’t think there’s any missed hype, I think he’s got something going.”

Big Money Fight
As well, when boxing Jake Paul, a big payday comes with it so Donald Cerrone says if he was offered the fight he would accept it. Yet, he isn’t chasing the fight and is happy in retirement but is leaving the door open.
“Would I like to fight him?” Cerrone said. “How could I say no to millions of dollars? I would definitely go out there and do it, but I’m not sitting here saying, ‘Jake you’re a YouTuber, you’re not worth a f*ck, blah blah blah.’ No, man. You’re making money and if you want to throw some money my way, I’m with you.”
