CLEVELAND, OHIO: Jake Paul followed in his brother Logan Paul’s footsteps and embarked on an adventurous career in boxing. But as he constantly engaged in fights, he quickly outgrew his brother and began to enjoy the sport.
Jake always draws a lot of criticism for his opponent selection. This makes sense considering most of his opponents were former mixed martial artist (MMA) competitors like Tyron Woodley, Anderson Silva, and Ben Askren.
He faced Tommy Fury, a British professional boxer, earlier this year. It’s interesting that he’s ready to face KSI next. But the fight never happened and KSI eventually had to fight Fury.

Given that Fury defeated both opponents, many supporters believe that Paul and KSI will eventually face off to see who is superior. But Paul’s final statement refutes each of these arguments.
Potential rematch between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury
Emphasizing his “respect” for Tommy Fury, Jake Paul has expressed interest in a possible rematch. He made it clear, however, that fighting KSI was not what he wanted to do.
Although Paul is now preparing for a fight with professional boxer Andre August on December 15, he is still ready to face Fury again after their February fight, in which Fury won by split decision.

Acknowledging the shocking aspect of their first meeting, during which Paul knocked Fury unconscious, he believes there is “unstable tension” between them.

Their connection grew despite their initial hostile rivalry characterized by insults. This is due to the technical nature of their fight.
“He won but I knocked him down, so it was a bit of a ‘I see you, you see me’ kind of thing. There are definitely still some unresolved tensions there, about who is the better man,” Paul said.
Paul chastised KSI for his dismal effort, even though Fury just declared a controversial unanimous decision victory over the Korean fighter.
Additionally, he said his current priorities do not include fighting with him.
Paul says he is ready to face whatever obstacles come his way and is still determined to achieve his goal of becoming world champion.
On the other hand, his brother gave him some sage advice on who he would face next.
