Jake Paul plans to be the boxing world champion
Many fighters and boxing legends including Amanda Serrano have said positively about Paul that he is not just playing, he actually wants to become the best. Adding to that, Paul let out his desire to become the world champion one day. He stated:
“ I want to be a world champion. If I am just fighting guys who can’t hit me, how am I going to get better in the ring under those things and get that experience? So Tyron Woodley is the perfect person to maybe get me to the three rounds first ever.”
And in order to become the champion he needs to fight with them. That is exactly what Jake is doing. Tryon is one of the biggest names in the fight world. If he beats him there he will only go onwards and upwards from there.
Fight fans were always skeptical of him for choosing easier opponents. Maybe that’s the reason never got hit in his face. But, no one can deny that he is actually working hard for the dreams and goals he has set for himself.
However, the journey will never be easy from here. Tryon is not like the other guys Paul has fought. Woodley has also made it clear that he is not taking Jake lightly and training as if he is going to fight Canelo.
Well, all these dreams, drama, and goals will have the answers on Aug 29.
