Jake Paul may make a moved to mixed martial arts soon, as the YouTuber-turned-novice boxer said he’s got an announcement coming and it involves a deal with a “big organization.”
On his “BS w/Jake Paul” show, the 25-year-old said, “I’ve got an an announcement coming soon, I can just tease that. I’m working with a big organization right now on a while thing in MMA that also has to do with me fighting, and we’re going to have an announcement soon.”
Paul said that he will be training with Javier Mendez, and that he would “probably need a year, year-and-a-half to get the kicks down. I already know jiu-jitsu. I want to be able to do everything in there — at least checking kicks. I know how to wrestle already.”
Paul is set to face Anderson Silva, a legitimate MMA legend with some actual boxing ability, in an Oct. 29 boxing bout on Showtime PPV.
