Jake Paul Debuting into Professional Boxing
Both fighters are looking at their debut in professional boxing and as to the organization of the event, it all seems familiar. The first YouTubers to really turn their beef physical were KSI and Logan Paul II, and they have been largely successful – at least in terms of attracting viewership, followers, and monetary return.
Now, Jake Paul is coming into this inaugural fight fully prepared, or so rumors would suggest. It has been reported that Paul is putting in the hours at Big Bear and training alongside Sugar Shane, a former world champion who has won multiple heavyweight titles, including the WBA, WBC, and IBF.
For his part, Gib has been glib. The trash talk has been rolling off his tongue and beamed out to his 2.07 million followers, an amount that easily boggles the mind, but still comes pitifully short of Paul’s 15 million pair of oddballs who may be watching at any one time. And for all his Gib’s smart talk, there is no telling what would happen.
One of the highlights in the run-up to the fight has been the pitch by Riley Reid, an adult film actress, who said that Paul is going to beat Gib’s without an issue, although she did phrase it a little more explicitly.
Weighing the Fighters
The truth is, there isn’t much information about them right now – in terms of careers and experience fighting professionally that is. As non-professional fighters they don’t have a well-documented profile. What’s more, the two of them have been enjoying a celebrity status and hardly a professional fighting life.
Most fighters who go into boxing and the MMA have been fighting their entire life, trained from a young age. Whether it is Jake Paul, Gib or Logan, these men have got into fighting as a way to settle scores – and far more likely, continue to develop their online brand.
Even training side-by-side with Sugar Shane might not be enough to pick up years of practice, although having access to state-of-the-art facilities definitely helps. Yet, with over 22 million combined fans, Paul vs Gib is definitely a fight to watch
