Jake Paul has remained active on social media and has fired jibes towards Floyd Mayweather and Gervonta Davis.
The American is poised to face Tommy Fury in Miami on December 18th, with an official announcement of the bout expected imminently. There has been intense speculation over a meeting with the two fighters now having decided the time is right.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer returned to his training camp in Puerto Rico this week, where he trained prior to his victory against Tyron Woodley earlier this year.
While many fighters stay off social media while they train in order to focus on their upcoming fights, Paul regularly does the opposite.
He has regularly poked fun at Floyd Mayweather, who is older brother Logan fought in an exhibition bout earlier this year, and has now directed jibes at Davis.
“This clown makes double your purse in my 4th fight,” Paul said in a post to his 4million+ followers, alongside a photo of him as a child put next to a photo of Davis indicating that they were the same size then.
“This clown doubles your PPV buys, and is double your height Gervonta. Gervonta should’ve fought me in kindergarten when we were the same height.”
He also fired jibes towards Mayweather himself, stating: “Dear Floyd, IF you can read this, please tell your puppet Gervonta to leave my name out of his mouth. Sincerely – Clownman69.”
“I need to stop responding to these fighters and promoting their fights more than they (and their promoters) do,” he said. “But sometimes I just can’t help myself.”
Paul’s fledgling boxing career has so far seen him go toe-to-toe with a variety of opponents but none have the boxing history that Fury does.Internet Explorer Channel Network
