Jake Paul Named On Clutch Athlete List Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Jordan

Jake Paul has been named fourth on the list of the most clutch athletes of all time, behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.

Clutch performance in sport refers to an athlete performing well under pressure or "in the clutch", which is usually in the final minutes of a game.

The list was compiled by Edwin Castro - known as Castro1021, and The Sun reports that Paul was so chuffed by the compliment that he shared it on his Instagram story.

Castro tweeted: "Most clutch athletes of all time in the correct order: Cristiano Ronaldo. Michael Jordan. Tiger Woods. Jake Paul. Born winners."

It is high praise indeed for the 24-year-old former YouTube star that has only recently made the switch to boxing, compared to Ronaldo, Jordan and Woods, who are all household names in their respective sports.

Ronaldo has won host of major honours, and is a five-time winner of the Ballon d'Or. Jordan is widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time after winning six NBA Championships with the Chicago Bulls, while Woods has won 15 golf major titles in his illustrious career.

In comparison, Paul has won all of four of his professional fights to date and most recently overcame Tyron Woodley in a split-decision victory.

He is now turning his attention to a fight with Tommy Fury, and the Brit will have to change his name to "Tommy Fumbles" if he loses. But a Fury victory would see him pocket a £423,000 bonus.

The stakes definitely appear to be higher for Fury, after his brother Tyson said he would "disown" him should Paul secure the victory.

Meanwhile, his trainer and father John Fury, said he would retire Tommy if he is unable to win, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The fight takes place in Tampa Bay on 18th December.
