    I'll put it on youtube and we'll split the revenue 3 ways.

    Hmmm... Interesting. I wonder if the lawnmower man will accept? Might go viral?

    Indeed, round six, cumulatively round 14 since this was a rematch.

    Paul's bouts have been sanctioned and he is a ranked cruiserweight, moving up to heavyweight.

    Tyson's exhibition with RJJ was not sanctioned.

    You seem to really be supporting this guy which is cool……but this dude isn’t a real fighter man. These aren’t actual fights. Hold on….going to holler at my boxing insider and se what he says…..standby……. SEE, @THE HCP actually DOES have inside sources……

    I mean...if you don't think that Paul's last two fights against experienced professional boxers were "real fights", then I really don't know what to say. I don't think anyone is claiming that he's going to be a title contender any time soon, but he's proving himself to be more than just a circus act.

    I haven’t actually watched enough of him to give a real opinion….. I thought his last couple fights were against actors and MMA fighters. Honestly would have to do more research. I didn’t realize he was fighting sanctioned fights. Thought they were all against random ex fighters.

    When he’s in the arena, I don’t see the normal promoters in the ring with him. The commissioners etc like I always do in “normal” fights. Like I said, I just sent a tweet to my boxing insider who I think just interviewed him. I’ll share what he says.

    Haha I think both Paul brothers are huge pieces of shit. But in terms of boxing and promotion that would make them pretty average.
    Paul's promotion company is called MVP.

    Entertainment is entertainment. Who gives a shit if its sanctioned. Ill be watching for sure… you know.. for the entertainment…
    Huge Tyson fan. Love how he turned his life around. And lets not kid ourselves. Most dominating champ of all time. In his prime i think he beats anyone in boxing history. Even Rocky Balboa.

    Whoa Whoa Whoa! Now you've gone too far!

    Agreed, it's entertainment. And, while I think Jake is a douche, I also have to admire him for realizing that he KNOWS everyone thinks that he's a douche, and wants to see him get knocked out. So he schedules these early charades, people pay because they think ha, dumb youtuber, can't wait to see him get dropped! And he smokes Nate Robinson. But then, it's an MMA guy, and everyone was certain...blah blah blah. And he kept getting paid, and even better, getting those MMA guys more money than they were going to make doing an MMA fight, for the most part.
    Again, think he's a douche, and am a huge Tyson fan. Ultimately don't care about Jake's attempts at being a real pro or whatever, but admire him for being able to get $$ for people he's fighting, and maybe get eyes on the sport that maybe have been drifiting away. And also kinda calling out UFC for not paying their guys all that well, to where they have to do this farce shit to get real good money.
