JAKE PAUL admits he’s been nothing but a ‘giggling troll’ since he entered the fight game.

The YouTuber has ruffled plenty of feathers in the combat sports sphere since he entered the boxing world in 2020.

The YouTuber admits he’s taken great pleasure in trolling fighters and promoters alike

Paul, 25, has caused quite the stir over the last 14 months with his repeated social media attacks on UFC bigwig Dana White and MMA superstar Conor McGregor.

And the former Disney star has revelled in the reactions his antics have managed to draw from MMA fighters and boxers alike.

During an appearance on Eddie Hearn’s No Passion, No Point podcast, Paul said: “It’s a little bit of both but it starts with a genuine dislike.

“I told my team like I will never attack somebody unless it feels genuine, I will never really start something. All of the people that I attack 90 per cent of the people is in response.

“I’m not out there trying to create feuds, but I am definitely a troll naturally and I giggle when I post this stuff I find it hilarious.”

Problem Child Paul firmly believes he’s on course to revolutionise the fight game, which he’s likened to the world before the creation of Uber.

He continued: “I am definitely a disruptor, I think that is what my main talent is by shaking the tree.

“Boxing is like taxis and I am coming in with the Uber app.

“I am trying to come in and put the taxi’s out of business and change the way boxing is done.”

The divisive Paul hasn’t set foot inside the ring since his viral KO of former UFC champ Tyron Woodley last December.

His efforts are currently focused on promoting Amanda Serrano’s historic showdown with Katie Taylor in April, although he’s currently weighing up a September return to the ring.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour: “There’s a lot going on in other aspects of my life.

“I’m going to do these press conferences over the next two weeks here to help with the promotion around Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano and I’m very busy on the business side of things with my venture capital fund.

Jake Paul is eyeing a September return to the ring

“So I haven’t even got back into the gym or been training at all.

“I need to have a discussion with my coaches but probably I would say August-September maybe. Maybe later. I’m trying to figure it out.

“Obviously if the stars align in some sort of way or I have a change of heart, then things can obviously move around but right now I don’t feel like that motivated to just go right back into another training camp.”
