he doesn't take criticism well at all. He went off the rails after he beat Klitschko and didn't get the big credit he felt he was due. Then he got the hump because interviewers were pulling him up about his homophobic comments in the past.

His legion of devoted fanboys will lap up everything he does because they're idiots but his antics are turning a lot of boxing fans off him lately, mainly because he can't keep himself off social media for 5 mins and that whole retirement fiasco.

Not this one.

Big fan of his boxing ability, obvs, but he does talk a hell of a lot of shit. You'd have to be an idiot to disagee with that.

Looks like Carl Froch shares the general fredster sentiment:
"If I could have one last fight it'd be Jake Paul. I'd absolutely smash him to bits, easy. Jake Paul can't fight, he's pretending."

He's a colossal ******* with some good, admirable points.

Reckon he suffers from having nobody around to keep him in check. We all need predators to stop us being nimrods.

he loves to be loved. And there's nothing wrong with that. But he honestly can't take any sort of criticism and he can't handle being put on the spot with difficult questions, which is quite f***ing rich considering the sheer amount of abuse he dishes out to other boxers.

It's why joshua lives in his f***ing head. He absolutely hates the fact that joshua got all the national accolades and attention that he felt he was due.

I like froch but I'm not sure what he's getting at here? Jake Paul isn't looking to fight for a world championship is he ffs, he's trying to entertain people. He's brought a lot more people to the sport than froch ever could, he's also a big advocate for a fighters union which is desperately needed especially in MMA.

Boxing needs every fan it can get, it's slowly circling the drain.

He called out one of the, if not the, best fighter in the world after beating a former MMA champion who is nearly 50. The reason he keeps avoiding fighting a real boxer is because he knows he will get beaten. Saying that, I think he would beat Tommy Fury but he's more a Z-lister than a real boxer.

As for bring fans to the sport - they're not watching boxing/boxers. They are watching youtube celebrities and some over the hill ex sports professionals put on some gloves and windmill at each other. It's a f***ing farce. The equivalent of Soccer Aid without the professionals.
