Kamaru Usman has sent a warning to Jake Paul after the YouTuber offered to box the welterweight champion and much more — This is your social media roundup on Fightful.
Kamaru Usman warns Jake Paul
Jake Paul may have bitten off more than he can chew by trying to fight Kamaru Usman. Usman was speaking to TMZ Sports and said that "beating the shit" out of the 3-0 boxer would intrigue him more than a fight with Conor McGregor. Paul then accepted the challenge and this caused the Nigerian to warn Paul about what comes with a fight with him.
Challenge accepted.@USMAN84kg if your boss Dana gives you permission to box me and make more money than you ever have, let me know and we can lace them up. I promise it will be your biggest pay day.— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) April 27, 2021
Keep making your money young man, and stay on that side. I ain’t no Disney kid and I don’t play fighting.— KAMARU USMAN (@USMAN84kg) April 28, 2021
