Jake Paul bad for boxing

Mike Neville Sports Editor

Myself, along with the rest of the world, are still trying to wrap my head around what is going on in the world of boxing.  

One of the most misunderstood goats of boxing, Floyd Mayweather, is going one on one with a YouTube kid. His younger YouTube brother just knocked out a former Olympian wrestler and UFC fighter Ben Askren. In the first round, might I add.  

Unless you have been living under a rock or do not own a social media account you would know I am talking about Logan and Jake Paul.  

Once considered the laughing stalk of the internet who has been demonetized time after time, these fools are getting credit.  

No, I mean really. They are convinced that they are professional boxers. What they are doing in the process is defaming the name and sport of boxing.   

Jake Paul especially, the younger Paul brother. He knocks out a youtuber and washed-up NBA player Nate Robinson that he thinks he can walk among the greats of Tyson and Ali.  

After knocking out Robinson cold, the “Problem Child” as he calls himself really is becoming a problem and it must stop.  

Paul has called out the Notorious Conor McGregor, Ryan Garcia, Nate Diaz, and other professional fighters who are the real deal.  

Ben Askren, a former Olympian, took the call to fight Paul. In the process, hoping to put an end to the fake fighter.  

Well, the complete opposite happened. Much like what happened to Askren versus Jorge Masvidal, the man was knocked out by Paul. Cold, in the first round.  

Paul, to give the kid credit, looked good out there. He was calm and collective throughout. The only problem is the man he was facing is a washed-up UFC fighter who is coming off major hip surgery.  

Many believe that Askren was bribed into taking the loss to get the one-million-dollar payday, the biggest in his career.  

No matter what you want to believe, one things for certain. This kid needs to be stopped and an end needs to be put to the name of Jake Paul.  

He needs to fight a real boxer or a UFC star like Daniel Cormier, Tyron Woodley or Kamaru Usman. All have called him out and he refuses to step up to the plate.  

From being the school yard bully picking on the weak, Jake Paul may have found his own kryptonite. Maybe not, time will tell.
