JAKE PAUL will ‘run a mile’ from Mairis Breidis – despite the boxing great calling him with a tattoo!
Sauerland thought Paul would be scared once he saw the highlights of the Latvian’s chilling knockdowns.
But in an attempt to land a huge payday with a social media star, Breidis has ‘JAKE’S BAD KARMA’ ink on his leg.
Sauerland was shocked by the tattoo and told talkSPORT Boxing. “He sent it to me, the day before it disappeared, and I don’t know what to say!
“I mean, he’s a very funny character and you mustn’t get him wrong – now he’s preparing for his mandatory defense, which he has to do.
“It will be [Jay] Opetaia, being an extremely difficult candidate again, won the right to fight him. He is a three-time world champion.
“So everyone out there is saying he’s after Jake Paul… yeah right!
“He’s a three-time World Boxing Super Series champion to unify the belts. You can forget that part, of course he sees it as a commercial opportunity!”
Sauerland publicly mocked Breidis over Paul winning the IBF and Ring Magazine’s 200lb king.
He added: “I said to him, ‘Mairis, this guy is not going to fight you! He wants novice boxers, retired superstars – preferably retired for a decade – he’s not looking for the heaviest cruiser. ‘
“It doesn’t help when you go to YouTube and type ‘Mairis Breidis showreel knockout’ and I’m sure if you showed Jake Paul that he would look at it and run a mile.
“But the fact that he’s done a tattoo, real or not, I’ve seen it go viral quite widely and I can understand that.
“He’s a character, Mairis, and I’m sure he’ll continue to surprise us with more moments like that.”
