YouTube star and professional attention seeker Jake Paul is looking for a share of the spotlight once again, this time calling out Soulja Boy in a celebrity boxing match. Not only does Paul say he is willing to box the rap star, he is also willing to throw down a hefty sum of money.
According to Paul, he’s willing to drop a whopping $20 million on a potential fight.
Paul put his offer on the table during a recent interview with TMZ.
“I’m trying to fight him. I know it will blow up,” Paul said. “I don’t like some of the stuff he’s recently done, but it’s more business. There’s just a lot of controversy around him, and I think people would like to see him get knocked out.
“I’m sure people want to see me get knocked out so that’s why it will be a big fight.”
If you don’t recall, Paul tested his hands last year in a “celebrity” boxing match when he took on fellow YouTuber Deji. Paul won the fight which aired on pay-per-view.
As for whether we will actually get to see the YouTuber enter the ring against Soulja Boy, we will just have to wait and see. But we can’t lie, there is some sort of bizarre intrigue in what would surely be an absolute trainwreck.
