World Boxing News has learned that Jake Paul will join the UN World Cup in November at the WBC event.
The move comes after the country’s president Mauricio Sulaiman made a shocking speech about the Vlogger and former Disney child actor.
Sulaiman, a popular YouTuber, posted a message after Paul’s win over former MMA star Anderson Silva.
The WBC president said: “After last night, anyone who says Jake Paul is not a legitimate fighter is just bitter and hateful.
“Congratulations on a wonderful, exciting and great exhibition of sportsmanship. Fair play.”
This is Solomon’s statement, because most boxing fans will not respect Paul until he fights a boxer.
Therefore, Sulaiman called a large part of the boxing community “bitter” and “haters” together.
However, the couple has a love-in-progress that is about to head to head.
Paul replied: “Thank you, sir.” Now we are starting”.
Perhaps the reason why Sulaiman posted as Paul has millions of followers and millions of eyes on him. It is a good advertisement for the WBC brand.
But in reality, Paul’s involvement in taking the places of real boxers on the Pay Per View platform which was once a pure concept for any fighter is causing a lot of discomfort in the game.
Jake Paul is ready for the WBC Ranking
The main reason why Sulaiman made such comments is to confirm their plans for the upcoming WBC meeting.
It is no secret that Mexico will host the event. If Paul attends, Solomon will see it as a real coup for his group.
But to get Jake Paul there, Sulaiman will need another incentive. This is where a bid for the cruiserweight or light heavyweight title will come into play.
Before the fight of Hasim Rahman Jr. Solomon kept what was given to Paul.
He said at the time: “Come August 6, Jake Paul will fight Hasim Rahman Jr. Winning this fight will give him the status of the World Boxing Council.”
Now that Paul has defeated Silva, the 47-year-old UFC star who is coming off a win over former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Sulaiman has the perfect excuse to add Paul to the WBC Top 40.
The announcement will take place between November 6 and 11 in Acapulco at the 60th annual WBC meeting.
Paul considers himself a boxer now that he has defeated Silva. This is despite the fact that Silva is not a boxer. This is a strange logic.
But it is difficult to consider how the truth can blind someone who respected the sport through his father.
Does Jake Paul deserve to be world class?
Jake Paul has not fought or beaten a boxer anywhere near the top forty. Therefore, how can it be worthy of honor?
“It’s always good to have a big challenge because it pushes you to be perfect. There is no lack of energy or lack of time or complaints or anything like that,” said Paul about his work.
“I know this is a great opportunity to go down in the history books.
“To be a legend, you have to beat the story, and that’s what I have the opportunity to do here.”
He continued: “Many things continue to be the third year of being a professional boxer. I have really improved.
“People will see a different fighter in the ring. I think people will be surprised. It’s amazing. We have made progress.”
As for where Paul will take his weight, WBN understands he may choose to drop ten pounds to reach the 175-pound title limit.
Cruiserweight will bring more challenges Paul’s way as he regularly weighs between 185 and 191 pounds.
