Jake Paul Responds After Conor McGregor Compares His Look To Jimmy Savile
| Last updated
The 25-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer attended his promotional charge Amanda Serrano’s historic boxing match against Katie Taylor last night, 30 April.
And while Jake said Serrano’s split-decision defeat was a ‘robbery’, McGregor was more concerned about the influencer’s attire, which included a pair of pink sunglasses, a bow tie and his trademark blonde mop.
Taking to Twitter, the 33-year-old UFC star wrote: “Who the f**k is this jackass in the pink Jimmy Saville glasses?”
It didn’t take long for Jake to respond with the following: “I'm the one who has done more for fighters than you ever have.
“The one who has won 5 fights in the past 2 years while you have lost 5.
“The one who isn’t owned by Dana White.
“The one who made the fight you just watched happen.
“The 1 who got your hero Katie Taylor paid… that’s who.”
Never one to shy away from a war of words, McGregor then responded with a picture of Savile wearing a pair of pink sunglasses.
Their back-and-forth has once again divided fans, with many showing support for McGregor.
“Man thought he was McGregor for beating a YouTuber In his pro debut,” wrote one, while another said: “Jake Paul writing paragraphs shows how much more invested he is in this.”
On the other side of the fence, others praised Jake’s recent success in the world of boxing, particularly this person who wrote: “Jake Paul is the greatest boxer of the century.
“Not only the best boxer, but one of the greatest men of all time and my personal hero.”
A second commented: “Connor are you scared of Jake?”

This isn’t the first time the duo have had it out online, leading many to wonder whether we’ll be seeing a Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor fight in the future.
Jake’s been angling for a fight with The Notorious for some time now, but he hasn’t yet managed to make it happen.
However, that hasn’t stopped him taking shots at the fighter, including last year when he offered Dustin Poirier a custom-made ‘Sleepy McGregor’ chain.
Just a month prior to this, when McGregor was asked if he would ever consider entering the ring with Jake or his older brother Logan Paul, he replied: "I don't think so.
"Never say never, if they're going to keep competing and whatnot, who knows? They're dingbats, the two of them."
