It appears that Jake Paul has his next fight ready to roll. This time around, fans of the social media star will see him take on five-time UFC champion Tyron Woodley, who’s “known for his knockout power.” Paul predicts that he’ll “drop” Woodley “in two rounds,” while also calling out UFC head Dana White for “trying to undermine his success like a jealous ex.” Those of you who want to watch can do so by checking out Showtime boxing on August 28th.
Logan Paul’s fight vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is set to earn the YouTube star enough money to retire on — which he very well could do.
The elder Paul brother, 0-1 in his professional boxing career, is set to take on “Money” in an exhibition bout on Sunday in Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, Fla.).
“I’m going to knock (Mayweather) out and become the greatest boxer on the planet. Then I’m going to retire and not give Floyd the rematch … He doesn’t know who he’s getting in the ring with,” Paul said Saturday via “Showtime” “He really thinks I’m a YouTuber. He really thinks I’m a fake fighter.”
According to a report from sportingfree.com, Paul is expected to receive a $250,000 base salary, plus 10 percent of pay-per-view shares. The YouTube star suggested in a May 11 interview with TMZ that he could make as much as $20 million from the fight. Based on his estimation and SportingFree’s report, that would mean the fight rakes in at least $200 million in PPV dollars.
“I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35 million,” Mayweather said. “I can eventually probably make $50 million, for just a regular fight. Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures, $100 million or more.
Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge is seriously considering his future with the franchise and could make a decision to step down, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Ainge is scheduled to speak to the media later Wednesday, a day after Boston’s disappointing season came to an end in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series in Brooklyn.
Ainge, 62, was the architect of Boston’s last title team, the 2008 team featuring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, and is the third-longest-tenured active lead executive of any NBA franchise.
