Jake Paul Reckons He Could Soon Make $1 Billion From Boxing

Jake Paul reckons he could soon become not only the highest paid boxer on the planet.

The YouTuber-cum-fighter has been absolutely raking in the millions after his three highly-publicised bouts.

But he truly believes the sky's the limit to how much he can earn.

In an interview with SunSport, the 24-year-old has claimed he can 'easily' become boxing's true PPV king by the time he retires.


Paul boasted: "I do think I can hit the $1billion prizefighter mark, easily. All I've got to do is keep on winning - and I will keep on winning - and we'll see.

"I think it's very possible and that's why I say there is no limit to where this can go. I have the ace up my sleeve. The ace up my sleeve is that I can actually fight."

His brother Logan will no doubt receive a hefty sum when he takes on Floyd Mayweather next month in a boxing match in Miami.


The 50-0 legend has come out of retirement for the bout and Logan will be hoping to do much better than his only other fight when he lost to fellow YouTuber KSI.

But Jake is hoping to slowly climb the ranks of professional boxing until he's the absolute champ.

Prior to his latest fight against former MMA star Ben Askren, his two victories came against former NBA player Nate Robinson and YouTuber AnEsonGib.

Jake Paul says it's up to him to see how far he wants to take his new found sport.


"It's like, how long do I want to dedicate myself to these long, hard training camps? I see it happening for the next five, six years," he said.

"But I want to have a family eventually. At the end of the day I'm an entrepreneur, so I can make money any way I want.

"It's not like boxing is my only outlet. I'm doing it because I love it and I'm having fun. It would be nice to hit 10-0 and retire but we'll see.


This is just the start of my journey, not even the sky, there are no limits to this. I'm just enjoying each moment, each fight and taking it as I go."

Floyd Mayweather currently holds the record for having the most amount of money won from his boxing career. Last year, figures were released suggesting he had made more than $1 billion from his wins.

Jake Paul is going to be fighting to top that.
