What has been just rumors, may now turn into a reality: Julio Cesar Chavez Jr has a real chance to fight against Paul.
"About Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, I would like that fight a lot because it silences the critics. He was a former World Champion and I know I can beat him. That challenge excites me. I want to fight a real boxer like newsflash and I am going to, just have some patience", stated The Problem Child.
Jake Paul was very close to fighting against a traditional boxer on his last fight, however, Tyron Woodley had to replace Tyson Fury's half-brother, Tommy, just a few weeks before the main date due to health issues. Tommy has recently said he wants to fight Paul but he may not have a chance at all.
"He (Tommy Fury) wants the payday, but like I have said it before I don't want to take the fight with him: he doesn't deserve it. I would rather fight Tyson, I will fight his brother or his bad before I fight Tommy", cleared up Jake Paul.
