World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman believes that Jake Paul can turn his hatred around through boxing like Muhammad Ali did.
Many boxing fans despised Paul, who wanted the purity of the sport and the right fighters to get into the fight.
That’s not what the former Disney star meant. He was accused of looking for the easiest option to put together one of the weakest Pay Per View deals ever seen in sports.
Jake Paul – boxer
However, the faux boxer seems to have found a friend in the WBC President, who presented the vlogger with meaningless titles for no success.
Speaking to fadanhype.com about Paul, Sulaiman said: “People don’t like Muhammad Ali. Half of the people who watched Ali fight then wanted him to lose.
“And today, Muhammad Ali is considered the greatest athlete in the history of mankind.”
A bit of a stretch by Big Mo to compare Paul to Ali – even in this day and age. Praise came after Carl Froch saw Paul and his brother new each.
The former super middleweight champion told William Hill’s Stripped Podcast that he would like to break Jake Paul and Logan wrestling WWE.
“If I could have one last fight, it would be Jake Paul. I would absolutely destroy him, simple,” Froch said before moving on to Paul’s path to find the next PPV trophy.
“But he’s not stupid, Jake Paul. He is a smart man. He plays and chooses his opponents wisely.
Jake Paul chooses opponents carefully
“He thinks he can fight. He talks nonsense in his Instagram and YouTube channels to all his followers and makes them all believe that he can fight.
“But he didn’t fight a single professional boxer, because he knew to stay away from professional boxers.
“Jake Paul can’t fight. He is pretending. But it bothers people. He got his audience. I don’t begrudge him – he makes money doing what he does. But he is not a professional boxer.
“He knows not to come near me. He’s bigger than me, 14 stone, older than me, fresher, and he thinks he can fight.
“I will not even train this man. I will do some training. I might do a little jogging to get a heart beat, but I’m going to take Jake Paul to school and hammer him.
“He knows. He won’t fight me. No chance.”
Carl Froch vs Paul Brothers – disabled boxing match
Turning his attention to Logan, who was taken from a distance by Floyd Mayweather, Froch added: “I will fight him and his brother on the same night.
“What they can do is take it in turns so Jake can do round one, Logan can do round two. So they get a four-minute breather between rounds.
“It has never been done before. Boxing is an exhibition. I’ll take them both.”
Paul has yet to face a professional boxer although he has been vocal about his desire to win a real belt in the sport. If he doesn’t face someone in the top fifteen, don’t worry just someone holding a pro license, he will never get close.
But Paul knew this, so he continued to do what he was going to do on Saturday night.
“It’s a shame the Tommy Fury fight didn’t happen,” said Froch. “Tommy Fury is a novice pro. He has no career as a boxer and is still a professional boxer.
“He’s a good fighter, he’s balanced, so it’s a shame the fight didn’t happen.
“But it would be the biggest shame if Jake Paul beat him and said, ‘I just beat a great fighter.'”
