GERVONTA DAVIS says ‘clown’ Jake Paul ‘can’t fight’ and is not good for the sport of boxing.
YouTube star Paul, who is beating 4-0 as a boxer, has a feud with the patronage of Floyd Mayweather recent despite their vast difference in skill and size.
Paul will face Tommy Fury later this month after a long war of words between the two.
But Davis, 27, spoke out against the spread of boxing on social media during his recent bout audio file with the Nelk Boys pranksters.
He said: “It’s not good for the sport, I don’t think so. No, because let’s just say like me, yes, I’ve been training since I was seven.
“Like, I’ve been training for 20 years. And then you’ve got someone who’s never done it before, puts on boxing gloves and can make $1 million.
“This is crazy.”
When asked if Paul would draw more attention to boxing, Davis replied: “No, because they only pay attention to who they want to pay attention to.
“They don’t care, they don’t even know the other gladiators. They only know one person they’re paying attention to.
“Once they, like, stop following him, they’ll come their day.”
In Paul’s first three fights, he beat YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, former NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC heavyweight Ben Askren, also 37.
But in August, Americans improve to 4-0 with an eight-round win over UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39.
Before that, he had put two-division champion Davis – who fought FOUR FIGHT lighter than Paul – on his boxing ‘hit-list’.
But the undefeated celebrity, 24, returned on December 18 against Tommy Fury, 22, 7-0, brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, 33.
Davis, who faced 23-year-old Isaac Cruz on Sunday, made no predictions but blasted Paul’s boxing prowess.
He said, “I don’t know, but I know that Jake can’t fight. He can’t fight like that.”
