Two weeks ago I wrote about how celebrity boxing has the potential to become the biggest sport in the world. Since then, the Paul brothers have done everything in their power to make me look like a genius. Logan has booked a fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, and his brother Jake released a video in hopes of getting McGregor to fight him. I have never witnessed a more disrespectful 50-second clip in my entire life. At this point, I am convinced McGregor vs. Paul will go down within the next few months. If it doesn’t, McGregor will lose a ton of respect around the world.
In the first 10 seconds of the clip, Jake calls Conor an “Irish cunt”, accuses him of beating up old men in bars, and then calls his wife a “4/10”. He goes on to say he offered McGregor $50 million to fight him, gloats about his 2-0 boxing record, and calls Dana White a pussy. I assume he made this video to grab attention and make a splash, and that’s exactly what he did. He then went on to unfollow everyone on Instagram except Conor’s wife.
At this point, if McGregor doesn’t fight Paul his reputation is ruined. This man called out your wife, your money, your boss, and your honor all in 50 seconds. While I do love some celebrity boxing, Jake does need some sense beaten into him. The guy is 2-0 against people who don’t box professionally and he really thinks he’s the GOAT. All of this being said, if he beats McGregor he’s the biggest name in boxing. He has nothing to lose while Conor has everything, and he just put him in a corner.
Common sense says McGregor dismantles Paul with ease, but if 2020 has proven anything, it’s that common sense is a thing of the past. I’m just hoping that the Paul brothers are laying the groundwork for future celebrity fights. As much as I love experienced fighters, I’d much prefer two A-listers throwing haymakers.
