Jake Paul Defends Next Fight Against Pro Boxer Andre August, Tells Critics to ‘Shut the F** Up’

'Problem Child' fires back at doubters

Jake Paul has fired back at critics who questioned his choice of opponent for his next boxing match. The YouTube star, who is known for his controversial fights, announced that he will be facing pro boxer Andre August in his next bout. Despite facing big-name opponents in the past, Paul defended his decision and listed several reasons why August is a worthy opponent. Read on to find out more about the upcoming fight and Paul's response to his critics.

Return to the Ring

After his last fight against MMA star Nate Diaz, Jake Paul is set to return to the boxing ring. The American 26-year-old, who has a record of 7-1, is determined to become a world champion. His next opponent will be Andre August, a 35-year-old pro boxer with a record of 10 wins and one loss. The two will face off in a cruiserweight bout over eight rounds next month in Florida.

Defending his Choice

Many fans were underwhelmed when Jake Paul announced that his next opponent would be Andre August. However, Paul took to social media to hit back at his doubters. In an expletive-ridden post, he told his critics to 'shut the f** up'. He then listed four reasons why August is a good choice, including his boxing skills, better record, more wins by KO, and being in the same weight class.

Moving Away from Influencers

During the official fight announcement, Jake Paul expressed his desire to move away from fighting fellow influencers and focus on seasoned fighters. He wants to build his experience in the ring against more experienced opponents. However, August issued a warning, stating that he is all about action and is confident he will defeat Paul. He believes that Paul may have the fame and resources, but he lacks the hunger that August possesses.

A Controversial Fighting Career

Jake Paul initially gained fame by fighting fellow YouTubers. However, he has recently shifted towards fighting former stars of the UFC. He has defeated fighters like Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley twice. He also enjoyed victories over octagon legends Anderson Silva and Nate Diaz. Despite suffering his first loss to Tommy Fury earlier this year, Paul rebounded with a win over Diaz via unanimous decision in August.
