Jake Paul Explains What He'll Do Immediately After Winning A World Title In Boxing

Jake Paul is turning more than a few heads after extending his unbeaten professional boxing record to 5-0 by knocking out Tyron Woodley on Saturday.

The 24-year-old knocked Woodley out in the sixth round to claim a victory in the rematch, and he now has lofty ambitions for the remainder of his career.


"Maybe when the time is right, I'll go for the world championship belt, whatever belt that is: the IBF, WBA, WBC, WBO, I don't know," he told Showtime Boxing.

"But it would be funny to just become a world champion and be like, 'yeah I'm a YouTuber,' and as soon as I win the world championship, I'll take the belt, throw it on the ground and f****** stomp on it, because you're a champion up here [points at his head] and in your heart, before anyone tells you you're a champion, and I am a champion."

Over 20,000 people saw the YouTuber-turned-boxer knock the former UFC star out at the Amalie Arena in Tampa.


To say there is a degree of scepticism surrounding Paul's claims is an understatement, and led to some rather amusing comparisons between the Disney star and David Brent from 'The Office'.


Paul will be laughing at those comments on his way to the bank though, after earning over £1million following the rematch.

Love him or hate him, Paul showed his mettle in a bruising bout with Woodley after fighting on with a head injury that he suffered in round three.

He backed that up with a huge right hook to end the fight in the sixth round. So, is a world title shot really out of the question? You never know what could happen.
