Jake Paul Shockingly Announces His Boxing Career Is Over

Jake Paul appears to be carving out a real career for himself as a boxer. Or at least he’s getting filthy rich with all of his highly-anticipated bouts.

On Sunday night, Paul followed his knockout of Ben Askren by winning via a split decision against veteran UFC fighter Tyronn Woodley.


While many fans are speculating whether Jake Paul would grant Tyron Woodley a rematch or who he would look to fight for his next blockbuster event, he took to Twitter to make a rather shocking announcement.

According to Paul, he’s now a ‘retired boxer’.

Jake Paul is currently 4-0 in his fights against Woodley, Ali Eson Gib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren.

Sure, none of those fights are against guys who are boxing in their prime. But Paul has successfully gone from a laughingstock to a guy who opponents know they have to take seriously.

It’s unclear if Jake Paul is plotting another move, or if he’s just trying to create some noise. If I had to guess, I’d say we’ll still see Paul in the boxing ring. There’s just too much money involved in his fights.
