Jake Paul makes deal with Showtime for next fight

I could vomit.  Professional douche bag Jake Paul has had a… guh… decent amount of success in the boxing ring, albeit with no actual professional boxers.

Quick summery:  He fought YouTuber AnEsonGib, ended with a first found TKO. In his second match, Paul knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson in the second round. Last month, Paul knocked out MMA fighter Ben Askren, who had never boxed professionally before, in the first round.

But each fight seems to attract more celebs and attention, so naturally, networks want in on this.  And Showtime is known for it’s high hype boxing.

So I’m guessing Jake is feeling pretty good about himself for getting some legitimacy via Showtime.  I do NOT want to know what he’s being paid.

“Jake is proud of the events he participated in with Triller and appreciates the opportunities they afforded him,” Paul’s adviser Nakisa Bidarian told ESPN. “Jake is excited to continue his boxing career with Showtime Boxing. Fight announcement coming soon.”
