Jake Paul has been challenged to a $100,000 six-round sparring session by three-weight world champion Claressa Shields.
Paul has feuded with Shields on social media for almost a year now while continuing to make waves in the boxing world.
The YouTube star is set to fight Tommy Fury on December 18, but Shields has made an interesting proposal on Twitter.
She tagged Paul's manager in the post and claimed: "I got 100,000$ of my own money I'll put up that Jake Paul can't beat me in sparring! That's on me!
I got 100,000$ of my own money I'll put up that Jake Paul can't beat me in sparring! That's on me! Let alone a fight! @JLeonLove tell ya mans I said what's up! I fight December 11th, he fight the 18th after that we can sparr 6 rounds! Best 4 out of 6 rounds! If it last all 6 :smiling_imp:- Claressa Gwoat Shields (@Claressashields) November 18, 2021
"Let alone a [email protected] tell ya mans I said what's up!
"I fight December 11th, he fight the 18th after that we can sparr [sic] 6 rounds!
"Best 4 out of 6 rounds! If it last all 6."
Shields is a double Olympic gold medalist and has won world titles as a super middleweight, middleweight and light middleweight.
The 26-year-old has also tried her hand at a different sport, transitioning to MMA earlier, this year.
She's unbeaten in the ring 11-0 but has been beaten inside the Octagon. Naturally, something Paul took great delight in.
Paul, meanwhile, is 4-0 having beaten fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson plus UFC alumni Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley in the last two years.
His upcoming bout with Fury is years in the making and even involves the pair's girlfriends, Julia Rose and Molly-Mae Hague.
Should Paul emerge winner, it's believed Fury will have to change his legal name to 'Tommy Fumbles' on official documentation.
If Fury hands the 'Problem Child' his first loss then he'll earn a bigger share of the purse.
Regardless of the result, Shields is certain she wants a piece of her bitter rival.
