Hello boxing fans around the world welcome once again to another episode of talking fight featuring mike orr at four and he’s gon na knuckle up for us.
What do you have today mike we’re going to talk about it? We’Re going to talk about it here? It is.
Okay, guys jake paul we’re going to talk about jake paul for a minute.
I heard you.
I know i hurt okay, but listen, listen! Okay! I love what this kid’s doing for boxing him and his brother, okay combined.
I think they have something like 53 million youtubers.
You know youtube followers, they’re doing a bunch, but listen jake paul is taking it really serious man he’s been training with bj flores he’s been training with evander holyfield and now he’s training with he’s training with ufc matsudal, who knocked out asgrin in five seconds.
So he’s training with the ufc guy to fight a ufc guy.
This is going to be an interesting match, coming up, man, askren and and and paul right, like everybody, keeps saying, yeah he’s a real boxer, yeah sure he’s training like a real boxer.
He does have natural talent.
Yes, he can knock people out he’s, not the cleanest of fighters.
We know this, but he’s now going to go in and face his first actual professional fighter who askren don’t forget, don’t forget, retired, from the ufc after losing twice.
Okay, back to back after a 20 win run right.
You know first 20 fights undefeated, he loses two.
He retires now he’s decided to get in the ring and you know fight jake paul.
But you know what as much as this is a joke.
I give it up to this kid man i do you know he’s had so much controversy in his life.
You know he starts off his entire career uh on on vines and you know becomes big and famous.
He moves to you know la and uh they.
You know he he becomes a disney kid.
You know starts and uh stars on a show called bizardvark uh quits.
That uh, you know, has all this all this problem in beverly hills there.
Where he’s living up in the hills and uh, you know he gets he’s getting fined for all these parties that he’s having in his house and all this kind of crap um.
You know he’s he’s, had a search warrant by the fbi on his house in calabasas.
For um, a raid that went on like a riot that went on in in a mall for the uh george floyd, uh ryan, stand he’s being looked at because he was in the mall.
While the looters were going on and filming it all – and you know he’s just he’s – he’s he’s headlines anywhere.
He goes right, but as much as he’s bringing all these wicked people into the sport now that are loving sport, they’re loving the boxing and loving the controversy.
At the end of the day, this kid is still doing it for real man.
You know fight camps in vegas, he’s sparring guys that are much more talented than he is he’s doing.
Well he’s getting better.
You know what this is going to be a big test for him.
He does have the natural ability he has to knock out power, but realistically he hasn’t fought any real fighters yet, but bj flores does say that he is training him in a way to you know, be able to make this jump into real fighters because he’s sparring These real fighters have we yet to see? No, not yet are we gon na see something? Yes, we will, this weekend we’re gon na see jake paul versus aspirin and we’re gon na see what he’s really made of and we’ll see if this youtube hype, that a lot of people are jumping on board with you know these youtube boxers wait hold on.
I forgot to mention that uh jake paul was awarded the wbc amateur championship belt and he decided to you, know, rip the amateur off and pose up with that wbc.
So he’s got he’s got plans.
Man he’s got plans; he wants titles, you know he’s making all these funny fights.
Man he’s he’s he’s bringing he’s bringing millions of people to the sport.
You know he’s he’s literally.
You know jabbing that with some electricity man and he’s trying to spark it up, and you know what at the same time, he is working his butt off in the gym and watch his training videos.
You know every fighter, no matter what man, the more you train, the better you get.
Eventually, this guy is going to become a real boxer and you know what he’s 200 pounds.
You know he’s he’s a big boy and he’s got the power behind him and we will see him knock people out, but his true test is going to be against aspirin, who is not a boxer but is a full contact.
Sport fighter? Okay, so this is going to be big.
This is a big thing.
I i kind of we have to talk about it because it’s coming up, we just had to talk about them.
You know he’s not really a prospect, but is he a prospect? Could he be a prospect? Maybe he does have the right people in this corner? You know he’s got he’s got train, you know.
Evander holyfield man champion is giving him pointers.
He’S got florence in his corner.
He’S training him on the regular.
You know he’s sparring real names, so you know to be the best you got to beat the best and to be the best.
You got to train with the best and that’s what he’s doing and i give it up to him and as much as as much as people out there, don’t like him as much as the older folk of the boxing community um.
Don’T like this crap.
There are a lot of people that are on board with it, and you know what this there’s about.
I believe there’s about seven seven or eight youtube boxers out there right now that have made this jump, and you know what i’m all for it, because it’s doing great things for the sports.
You know it’s it’s.
It’S boosting our fan base, man, it’s boosting the fan base and you know what realistically that’s what we want.
Man we want boxy to stay in the spotlight be popular and this guy’s helping graham do you have any thoughts.
I have a couple of thoughts: young man.
Yes, one yeah: a couple months ago, we interviewed a guy by the name of zab judah, yes and zab.
Judah said this: kid is training hard down in vegas.
Yes, he is, but the other thing zab buddha said is: when he gets into a ring versus a professional fighter, he will lose okay, yes, he did so.
The other thing i want to bring up is given the fact that jake paul is jake paul and he is quite wealthy.
Now yep 11.
He has the money to pay these professional trainers and these guys are going to take his money.
But what’s the other thing? We’Ve learned by talking to all these professional fighters.
You have to have a natural talent to begin with which ej flores does say that he does have the natural ability it just has to be harnessed, and that’s what he’s working with him in doing is he’s taking that natural talent that he has and he’s trying To apply it and give him the tools that he does need, uh, there’s also another fighter that has gone on record, saying that, yes, he does have the ability to do this.
He does have the ability the natural talent is there.
It’S just he’s got to get the right people to take that natural talent and make it develop into something better because, yes, honestly, i do believe if he does get into the ring with a real boxer he’s going to get a [ __ ] slap.
Yes, yes, but his first true test is going to be against aspirin, who is a professional fighter, not a professional boxer.
But yes, he is a professional fighter and this is going to be a real true test to see jake paul’s ability and to see what he’s going to do on that we don’t disagree.
The other thing that we don’t disagree on is ability to draw fans into the realm of boxing new fans specifically and i’ll bet dollars to donuts.
Among that group, in terms of demographics would be women.
I guarantee you it’s going to bring an awful lot of women into the sport.
Why, apparently, he’s good looking so sure we’ll see we’ll see after the aspirin fight? Well, having said that, i was gon na.
I was gon na conclude by saying: listen if it works for benny bridges on the male side of things, it’s gon na work for jake paul.
You know what yeah i believe, it’s going to man and and and believe me, he is working really hard at it.
Man, i’ve watched these training videos, i’ve.
You know, i’ve listened to the interviews.
I’Ve you know heard the interviews from his coaches.
He has the money.
Yes, you know he’s worth 11 12 million dollars.
He has the money to hire the right people to help him achieve the goals that he wants to achieve in the world of boxing, but we have yet to see him face a real boxer, which i hope well.
There are talks that, after the aspirin fight his next fight, he wants to fight nate diaz.
Now, here’s the thing nate diaz is coached by delagrate, who is one of the best boxing coaches in the ufc great hands feed.
You know nate, diaz and nick diaz they’ve always had the same.
You know they’ve got those great boxing hands.
That would be a great fight to see, but here’s the thing asgrin is training right now with freddie roach, so we’re gon na see a different aspirin in the ring than we will have seen in the ufc.
So technically, this is going to be a real big test for him and we’re going to see if he can back up his words.
What i’m not liking about him is as much as the controversy he likes to cause, and you know i’m all for that.
But i’m getting sick and tired of the the crap he says about.
You know hey to the children like hey, i’m going to make your dad bloody and come home to you bloody, like that that that [ __ ] is uncalled that that is not good.
That’S not good press man that kind of stuff those antics that’s got to stop, and you know what somebody’s got to get in the ring and stop him by punching his face in that’s how that’s gon na stop and we need to get him in front of A real boxer who can deliver that just to shut him up, humble him a little bit and then allow him to take this sport seriously.
He does take it serious, but not serious enough.
Man he’s trying to make it too much of a sideshow, but it’s dry and fancy so we’re kind of on the fence with him right.
Everybody is everybody’s on the fence fight fans out there watching.
We know you’re on the fence, man, you know, throw me out those comments, man we want to hear you want to hear what you think about jake, paul i’ll, tell you what i think i think hey.
Does he have the natural talent? Yes uh.
Has he competed in some sort of sport before where you fight people? Yes, he was a high school wrestler.
He knows competition.
Yes, has he boxed anybody? Really? That knows what they’re doing no? Is he going to fight an actual fighter this weekend? Yes, so now we know what we’re gon na see now, if he can come through with the big w this weekend, then hey, maybe maybe people need to shut up and take notice because you know maybe there is a new prospect in the cruiserweight out of curiosity.
Uh, who else is on the card? Do you know? I haven’t even looked man, you know the question yeah i just i don’t even care about that card, i’m just i really.
I i thought i thought it was a bigger card that was being it’s a bigger car and i think it’s put on my trailer.
I think, trailers, i believe, i’m not sure who else is on the card.
I haven’t looked it up yet uh i’ll find out.
You know you know what i’m gon na end up watching it anyway, let’s be careful, you know what i mean.
I just felt like i’m not going to watch the fight.
I love watching fights i’m going to end up right.
I’M definitely going to watch it because, honestly, at the end of the day, i would i would like to see jake paul come up with a w man, because i know he’s put his work in.
I know he’s in that gym and i know he’s trying real hard and yeah you know like like, like they said man until he’s in front of serious competition.
We won’t know what the man’s made of right.
That’S it right all right, all right, fair enough! That’S your boy mike or you would like it share it.
Jab that, like hook subscribe, knock me out those comments.
Let me know what you think about the joke that is hitting the boxing world right now of jay paul and what you think it actually is.
I believe he might show us something, i’m don’t you know, i’m not going to hold my breath, but i am definitely going to watch that fight guys.
It’S your boy mike for we’ll see you tomorrow knuckle up thanks mike yeah man.
Just just remember before we go.
Yes, the sex pistols who couldn’t play their instruments, inspired an entire generation of young people to pick up uh guitars and play hey.
If that guy can play, i can play that can make tons of money.
I kicked it so jake paul is going to inspire [ __ ] ton of new kids out there to pick up those boxing gloves and get in the ring hey.
I believe i believe, like i right now, like the wbc, does have an amateur belt like a wbc amateur title and they throw this event.
You know in california, honestly it’s it’s like it’s like the new platform for these youtubers man to come out and just start fighting each other, like maybe they’re, going to start a whole youtube amateur league.
Who knows we’ve you know if people start to follow in his footsteps, it’s only time will tell man.
Only time will tell yeah.
I can see the wheels spinning there.
Graham won’t tell anybody out there all right mike or thank you very much.
Yeah man we’ll see you tomorrow,
