Jake Paul has rubbished accusations claiming that he's using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) for the Tyron Woodley fight.
But while he claims he's completely clean, the YouTuber does admit that he's yet to be officially tested ahead of the highly-anticipated boxing grudge match.
Respected mixed martial arts coach Firas Zahabi first made the accusations a few weeks back, stating: "I definitely think Jake Paul's gonna be on PEDs. It exists in the world of boxing just like it exists in MMA, and I don't think Tyron will be on PEDs. I think Tyron will be totally natural. Does it make a difference? It absolutely does."
These whispers eventually made their way to Paul's management team who immediately forwarded it on to the former Disney actor.
"My manager sent me that the morning it came out like, 'Hey, by the way, Georges St-Pierre's coach said you're on PEDs,'" Paul told MMA Junkie.
"So I swiped up my phone - this is a true story on my mom's life, she's looking me in my eyes (behind the camera) - I swipe up my phone, click Safari and type in, 'What's PEDs?' Then I see it says performance-enhancing drugs. I texted my manager back, 'Good thing I had to Google what PEDs are.' But I look at it as a compliment. People are trying to do anything they can to discredit me and take away from this journey. They're already making excuses for him when he loses.
"This is a real fight. This isn't the exhibition s**t that my brother (Logan Paul) and Floyd (Mayweather) did. This isn't exhibition sh*t. I do real pro fights with a commission who is drug testing me. These claims are stupid and of course (Zahabi is) doing it to get clout. Look at it, four weeks later it's still getting brought up in interviews. His name gets mentioned. He gets some clout and he's a happy little w****r jerking off to these videos somewhere all excited about the clout he's getting."
When asked if he'd been drug tested yet, Jake replied: "Not yet. I think that happens the day of the fight or the day before the fight. But test me whenever."
The Ohio State Athletic Commission are expected to test both Paula and Woodley ahead of their 190-pound bout.
