Jake Paul Is The 'Most Feared Man In Boxing'

Jake Paul is the "most feared man in boxing" apparently.

Well, at least according to Chael Sonnen.

YouTuber-turned-fighter Paul has somewhat taken the combat sports world by storm, recently extending his unbeaten run inside the ring to five by knocking out former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.

The victory has boxing fans wondering who the 25-year-old will lock horns with next and, more importantly, who has the job of derailing the Jake Paul hype train.

The days of a grudge match against former Love Island contestant Tommy Furry seem done and dusted with Paul turning his attention to former middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

But ex-UFC star Sonnen believes we'll start seeing more and more boxers, whether they're retired or not, start turning down fights against Paul.

"Jake Paul is the most feared man in boxing," Sonnen said on his YouTube channel.

"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."

It remains to be seen who signs on the dotted line to fight Paul next, although one thing is for certain: They'll be wanting to shut the YouTuber up once and for all.
