Jake Paul furiously tells critics to 'shut the f** up' as YouTube star defends next fight against pro boxer Andre August | The Sun
JAKE PAUL launched an expletive-ridden blast at his critics after announcing his next opponent will be Andre August.
The ‘Problem Child’ will return to the boxing ring for the first time since fighting MMA star Nate Diaz in Orlando, Florida on December 15.
The American 26-year-old is 7-1 in his fighting career after his last outing and is adamant that he is still aiming to become a world champion.
August, 35, has a record of 10 wins and one loss on his CV and will collide with his countryman in a cruiserweight bout over eight rounds.
However, many fans were left underwhelmed when the Texan was announced as Paul’s opponent following his big-name battles with Diaz, Tommy Fury and Anderson Silva.
But the much-maligned and controversial YouTube sensation hit back on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, in X-rated fashion at his doubters.

Paul wrote: “Shut the f*** up if you still hating.”
Then, with each next to green tick emojis, he listed four reasons why August was a good choice, writing: “Boxer true and true. Better record than me. More wins by KO than me. Same weight.”
August’s only defeat came against Eric Abraham in 2018 and his most recent victory came against the until then undefeated 7-0 Brandon Martin which he won unanimously on points.
During the official fight announcement, Paul outlined his desire to move away from fighting fellow influencers.

He said: “I want to build my experience in the ring against seasoned fighters.”
However, August issued a warning, saying: “I don't talk very much. I'm all about that action.
“Jake Paul has the money, the fame, the team and the resources, but he doesn't have my hunger.
“When that bell rings, I am going to go straight to Jake Paul and ring his bell and send him back to YouTube for good.”
Paul initially began by fighting fellow YouTubers but has more recently moved towards fighting former stars of the UFC.
He defeated Ben Askren before beating Tyron Woodley twice and then enjoyed victories over octagon legends Anderson Silva and Nate Diaz.
His win over Diaz arrived via unanimous decision in August.
That was on the back of him suffering his first loss in February to Fury in Saudi Arabia via a controversial split decision.
