JAKE PAUL has declared the ‘Earth will smile’ if he or his brother Logan get knocked out inside the boxing ring.
The American, 24, believes that the boxing world refuses to take him or his sibling seriously after they claimed fame through YouTube.
Paul – who is preparing to face UFC legend Tyron Woodley on August 28 – has won all three of his professional fights inside the squared circle.
All of his outings have failed to go past the second round, with the Problem Child beating fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in his first contest.
He the blasted away ex-NBA star Nate Robinson in November, before destroying MMA king Ben Askren inside the opening round.
Meanwhile his brother Logan recently took Floyd Mayweather the distance in their exhibition bout earlier this month as the pair drew in Miami.
And Paul has now insisted that no-one wants the duo to succeed in the ring, stating people only watch them in the hope that they will lose.
Quoted by Michael Benson, Jake said: “Imagine if one of us gets knocked out, the world would be so happy.
“The Earth will smile, that’s what people want.
“They want to see it happen because they don’t wanna respect us as ‘boxers’.”

After a gruelling eight rounds against Mayweather, Logan has refused to rule out a future dust-up against boxing legend Mike Tyson.
He remarked: “Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one?
“My lawyer mentioned it and he was like, ‘No, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance’.
“I’m like bro, I literally just went through all of this, you can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. Bro, he’s old, old.”
Tyson, 54, made a remarkable comeback to the ring 15 years after his last professional fight, where he drew in an exhibition with Roy Jones Jr, 52.
The celebrated puncher is plotting his second comeback fight in September and is already training.
