Jake Paul and Paddy Pimblett have been trading insults on social media recently after Paddy accused Jake Paul of rigging his boxing matches – which is pretty much what most of the world probably thinks too – and yesterday Jake offered Paddy $1 million to spar with him.

It only took Paddy a couple of hours to issue his own video response, saying that he couldn’t really do it right now because he has a fight coming up next week in Las Vegas so doesn’t really have the time to fly to Puerto Rico to spar with Jake Paul – but that he was up for it in the future. Here’s how it all went down:
Dear Paddy Pimblett, you claim my fights are rigged? Stop calling the GOAT Anderson Silva a criminal and come spar me.
You win, I give you $1 million. I win, you join the UFA. pic.twitter.com/jOFqcPdjnz

Of course (I’m interested), but I’m under contract by the UFC and Jake said this knowing full well I’m fighting next week, know what I mean? As if he does not know I’m fighting next week and he’s like, ‘I’ll fly you to Puerto Rico.’ Come to the PI next week. Come to the [UFC Performance Institute] next week and bring $1 million in a bag and I will spar with you.
I don’t even think he’s a bad boxer. I think he’s a decent boxer now ’cause all he’s done is boxing in the past two years. I think he’d beat Tommy Fury. I know he wouldn’t beat me.
Lad, I’ve been doing this a lot longer than you mate. I’ve got more heart and determination and grit than you, and if we did get the fight done and I just focused on boxing for 3 to 6 months, I’d just punch him around the ring!
Sounds like something’s definitely going to happen between the two of them there doesn’t it, although Paddy probably has to be a bit careful there. If Jake Paul battered him then nobody would be able to take him seriously in his UFC career anymore and there’s also the little problem that Dana White absolutely hates Jake Paul and wouldn’t be too happy seeing Paddy promoting him/working with him. We’ll see how this plays out because I would love to see the two of them getting it on.
