Jake Paul is the ‘most feared man in boxing’ and fighters ‘not sure they can beat him’, claims ex-UFC star Chael Sonnen

CHAEL SONNEN has claimed Jake Paul is the ‘most feared man in boxing’ with fighters ‘not sure they can beat him’.

That is despite the YouTuber-turned prizefighter not yet facing an opponent with a prior professional boxing record.

He was due to fight Tommy Fury, who is 7-0, until the British ex-realty TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.

Paul, 25, instead rematched ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, scoring a brutal knockout win.

Former middleweight boxing world champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, 35, has been among the names in talks to fight the American celebrity next.

But ex-UFC title challenger Sonnen, 44, believes traditional and experienced boxers are second guessing themselves against 5-0 Paul.

He said on his YouTube channel: “Jake Paul is the most feared man in boxing.

“These boxers are not sure they can beat him. They are not sure they can deal with it.

“The trainers are not sure that a kid that he’s had since middle school and worked with 11 or 12 years can’t get the jump on a guy who’s done it four times.

“It is the biggest, most profiled spotlight with the largest paycheque and nobody wants to do it.

“You’re not hearing names pop up. You’re not hearing them sprout up anywhere.”

Paul has KO wins over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37 and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

He then beat Woodley on points in August before winning by KO in their late-notice rematch four months later.
