Jake Paul has revealed he is targeting a world title after beating Tyron Woodley on Sunday.
The 24-year-old has knocked out all four of his rivals with a record of 5-0. And the YouTuber claims no fighter in the history of boxing managed to achieve these results at his age.
“It’s scary to try and put a cap on where this go, the potential is unlimited here,” Paul said (via Daily Mail).
“It’s really up to me and my team and how hard I want to work. I’m hungry and motivated and I love this s***. Two years as a professional and this has gone astronomical and it’s making history.
“I would love to just continue to put on historic events, sell massive pay-per-views and fight higher level opposition as I go.
“Maybe when the time is right I’ll go for the world championship belt, whatever belt that is – IBF, WBA, WBO, I don’t know. It would be funny to become world champion and be like: “Yeah, I’m a YouTuber”.
“As soon as I win the world championship, I’d take the belt and I would throw it on the f****** ground and stomp on it, because you’re a champion in here (pointing to his head) and in your heart… I am a champion!’
Then he added:
“No one in the history of boxing has done what I’ve done at this age.”
“Massive pay-per-views, knocked out every single person that I’ve fought. The only person that’s as active as me and doing as big pay-per-views is Canelo.
“I’ve turned everyone I’ve fought into memes, going viral all over the internet. I’m ready to fight whoever – it doesn’t matter if they’re a professional boxer or a five-time UFC champion. I’m built for this.”
