Jake Paul is fed up with being criticised by UFC President Dana White and his rival KSI.
Paul has been throwing jabs inside the boxing ring for two years now, and ahead of his upcoming fight with Hasim Rahman Jr, he took the opportunity to throw shots at Dana White and KSI.
KSI and Paul have gone back and forth for nearly five years, and the beef still hasn’t been settled. Paul expressed that if the two were to meet between the ropes, he would be the A-side due to his financial gains since transitioning into boxing.
Paul also insisted that he was the bigger star out of the pair, believing that he is even bigger than KSI is in the UK.
Jake Paul Talks KSI Beef
“He makes no money compared to me,” he said, in quotes reported by FanSided.
“I have made 45 million dollars in boxing. I’m one of the top five highest-paid athletes under 25. The numbers speak for themselves.
“I have built my PPV price over time. That is something he hasn’t done.
“It’s two different levels, two different worlds. The kid is an internet star. He’s pushing 30 years old.
“You go online and look at our Google search trends and compare our searches online.
“I s**t on him even in his own country. In the U.K, I get twice as many searches as him, even in his own country. He’s popular; he has a lot of clout but is not built like me and not on the same level as me.”
During The DAZN Boxing Show, hosted by Ak and Barak, Paul was asked to comment on White’s remarks on UFC star Nate Diaz. The Youtuber turned boxer claimed that the White is doing everything in his power to dishonour Diaz’s impact within the company.
Paul said: “It is what it is. He is saying that because I’ve knocked out his UFC champion.
“I’ve knocked out Ben Askren, who was a big UFC star at one point.
“He is just doing anything he can to discredit me.
“I beat every single person in the UFC in a boxing match that’s in my weight class which is around 170-175.
“He knows that if I fought in his organization, it would be one of the biggest UFC PPV’s ever.
“And I told him that I was down to fight for free in MMA. He just had to increase his fighter’s healthcare and the minimum fighter pay because he pays his fighters $12,000. And I want him to pay his fighters at least $50,000 per fight.”
