Jake Paul: I’ll knock Dana White out if I run into him, Tyron Woodley in for his toughest fight

Paul’s confidence is at an all-time high.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

During this media interview caught by Fight Hub TV, Jake Paul talks about his upcoming fight with Tyron Woodley and emphasizes that he’s ready to put on a show as he develops his boxing skills. Paul also didn’t miss a beat when asked about his ongoing rivalry with Dana White, saying he could catch some hands too.

On how he’s feeling entering this weekend’s fight against Woodley

“I quite literally couldn’t be anymore confident. This is what I do it for — this is game time, show time, I love this part. This is the fun part, the hard work is done and I know how good I am, I know how sharp I am and I’m feeling better than ever.”

On if Woodley will underestimate his skills

“I think that’s a big detriment to him, the fact that he’s a bit delusional. Just like his friend Ben Askren thought ‘this is just a YouTuber, he can’t be that good’ and that will be a part of his demise. This is the toughest fight that Woodley has ever had, and I mean that on my mom’s life. And I hope he trained like that but my guess is that he didn’t.”

On his ongoing feud with UFC’s Dana White and if he thinks White will come to the fight

“I don’t think Dana would come, man. We go back and forth at the end of the day — he’s always talking about me, I’m always talking about him. He’s trying to discredit what I’m doing...”

On how he expects his beef with White to resolve itself

“I think it ends with me running into him at a club in Vegas and knocking him the fuck out.”
