Jake Paul assures fans he’s a ‘professional boxer’ with new video after Tommy Fury loss
| Last updated
In perhaps one of the most 'Jake Paul' tweets, the YouTuber-turned-boxer has reassured his fans - quite literally - that he well and truly is a 'professional boxer', following his loss to Tommy Fury last week. Take a look:
There's no denying that Paul's fight against Fury in Saudi Arabia last week will go down in boxing history as one of the most highly anticipated - seeing as the event was canceled twice over the last two years.
But the two rivals finally went head-to-head in the ring on 26 February and despite Paul showing an awful lot of confidence - and perhaps arrogance, some would say - throughout the entire build up, he suffered his first defeat to Fury, who won on points after eight rounds.
Following the defeat, Paul said to press: "All respect to Tommy he won, judge me by my wins judge me by my losses."
However, he then added: "I don't know if I agree with the judges, it is what it is but that is the boxing world. I have won in every single way already in life! I have made it further than I ever what I thought!
"I'll take it on the chin but we can run it back!"
The YouTuber then seemed to make an excuse for his performance, saying: "Honestly I felt flat, I got sick really bad twice in this camp and injured my arm. I am not making my excuses, it was just tough in this camp.
"But judge me by my losses. 100 percent let us run it back!"
And with Jake Paul being Jake Paul, it seems as if his confidence was barely scratched by Fury's boxing gloves as he is already back on social media assuring fans of his capabilities as a boxer... but not the kind of boxer one would think.
Taking to Twitter today (3 March), Paul uploaded a short clip showing him swiftly taping up and moving a load of FedEx boxes.
The caption was simply: "Professional boxer."
You just have to admire his positivity, right?
Paul has already proven himself to not be a sore loser, with him tweeting just a few days ago: "The business of the event was a massive success. Doesn’t mean I’m not emotionally hurt by the loss.
"But I am not going to sit here and sulk. I am going to use that hurt to fuel my path forward to never feel this way again."
And it's clear the Paul clan have no intentions of letting the defeat slide, with brother Logan Paul saying he wants to get revenge on Fury.
"If you don't [have a rematch], I'd like to handle that ... That was like my first instinct, obviously," Logan told his brother on the BS W/ Jake Paul podcast.
"He's my little brother. F**k that. Inflatable arm ass, motherf***er. F**k."
