Freddie Roach sheds some light on Mike Tyson’s reaction to watching Jake Paul kick in the Wildcard gym – and reveals that Tyson was unimpressed.
In fact, the legendary coach told FightHype that Tyson had seen enough YouTubers after just thirty seconds of arguing.
“Tyson looked at him and he walked away.
Mike [Tyson] observed Jake spar. He watched 30 seconds of him fighting and then said ‘Freddie, can we go downstairs.’
He doesn’t care about all that. “
As for Roach himself, while not quite as damning as Tyson, he wasn’t entirely amused by Paul’s abilities either.
“He’s okay. Club boxer, maybe – I don’t know. I don’t really know him, he just wanted to use my gym and I said it was fine. “
Despite possessing limited abilities in the eyes of many, Jake Paul’s commercial prowess cannot be doubted, with huge hype that has been generated about his next fight – which was revealed to be going up against UFC legend Anderson Silva last week.
Scheduled for October 29order at the Gila River Arena in Arizona, Silva will undoubtedly represent the toughest test of Paul’s foray into professional boxing to date. As a former UFC world champion, the Brazilian also boasts a 3-1 professional boxing record, and defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in the ring last year.
However, with Silva now 47, youth and freshness are on Paul’s side, which makes the competition so intriguing and should provide an insight into just how far Jake Paul can go. .
