UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is looking to fight Jake Paul-turned-boxer, but there’s a big catch The Nigerian Nightmare has outlined to make it a reality.
Jake Paul has taken the boxing world by storm. With a 5-0 record, including a KO win over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, The Problem Child has proved quite the contender.
While Paul may not have another opponent set for 2022, he has no shortage of potential opponents including Conor McGregor, Paddy Pimblett and Jorge Masvidal – to name a few.
Now Kamaru Usman has commented that he could potentially face Paul, although he originally laughed at a fight.
Kamaru Usman fights Jake Paul for $100 million
During an appearance at Club Shay Shay, Usman was asked if he would ever fight Jake or his brother Logan and had quite the answer.
“Absolutely, but these guys make a lot of noise. They’ve got the creators and they’ve got this new generation, these new kids who are getting involved and watching them. That’s fine, but they’re not equivalent to dollars,” he said.
According to Usman, the only time one of their fights turned into a serious win was when Logan fought Floyd Mayweather, and credits the 50-0 boxing champ with even making the fight so successful.
“Jake Paul says, ‘We do these numbers.’ You can add up every fight Jake Paul had, but the pay-per-view numbers weren’t higher than my last fight,” he added. “Write me a check for $100 million, Jake Paul, and I’ll be there next week to kick your ass.”
While it’s unlikely even Jake Paul Usman can give $100 million to get him in a ring, it’s at least good to see that he would consider taking on The Problem Child. However, whether there is room for negotiation remains unknown.
