Jake Paul has dismissed claims that he has contractual clauses which prevented past opponents from knocking him out.
The 4-0 (3 KOs) YouTuber turned boxer has beaten fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, NBA star Nate Robinson, and former UFC fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
Jake has frequently called out Conor McGregor and was once in talks for a bout with McGregor’s training partner Dillion Danis, though a deal never materialised and bad blood still exists between the camps.
“I swear on anything he was against the ropes, I swear, that’s why when Jake Paul was against the ropes, Tyron Woodley didn’t hit him.
“I’m telling you right now. It was in his contract where it said you’re not allowed to knock him out.”
Claressa Shields also referenced this claim from Danis when exchanging trash talk with Jake last week.
When asked about the comments, Jake told reporters: “Look, it’s a bunch of losers trying to make s*** up to get in the headlines.
“And to get reporters like yourself to ask about that exact question and put their name into the mix so they can get a little bit of clout.
“Having a ‘no knockout clause’ in a contract – I’ve never heard of that.
“It’s highly illegal, I would be in jail. That’s like rigging a fight. I would be in prison if that was a real thing.
“It’s all nonsense, it’s all bulls*** and they got exactly what they wanted out of it, which was for people to mention their name.”
Regarding McGregor, Jake added: “It’s very real, I think that fight happens in the next 36/48 months for sure.
“It makes financial sense.
“I don’t have a message for Conor. At this point, he needs me more than I need him.
“He’s a f***ing loser, drunk motherf***er running around with his bulls***, doing all this crazy s***.
“The guy’s a mess, so like I said – he needs me more than I need him.”
