“Do not wake the f****** animal”

Tony Bellew was responding to a recent Jake Paul comment 

Jake Paul might have made another rival in his short but eventful boxing career. The undefeated YouTuber-turned-boxer was in a conversation with Eddie Hearn and claimed he didn’t know who Tony Bellew was.

Hearn was advocating for a fight between Paul and Bellew. Hearn also explained that Bellew was in the hit movie Creed but Paul was not impressed.

This caught the attention of Bellew and the former WBC cruiserweight champion hit out at Paul.

“Just in case you needed to know what I look like @jakepaul this is me! The other is how ya coach got to know me! Creed was Pretty Ricky Conlan! What this is Tony BELLEW! Do not wake the fucking animal up that’s been dead for years.”

Bellew also shared a photo of him defeating Paul’s boxing coach, BJ Flores. He faced Paul’s coach in 2016 where he defended his WBC cruiserweight title.

What is Jake Paul doing now?

Paul made a lot of noise after going 5-0 in his boxing career. He has picked up knockout wins over former UFC stars Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley and had called out Conor McGregor and many other MMA stars.

However, the Youtuber-turned-boxer seems to have taken a different route. He has become a boxing promoter and has worked relentlessly on the Amanda Serrano vs. Katie Taylor bout.

He is on Serrano’s side and he, along with Eddie Hearn, have helped in creating history. The boxing promoters have ensured that this fight takes place at Madison Square Garden. This would be the first women’s boxing match to headline MSG.

Many are calling this the biggest fight in women’s boxing and it all goes down on 30th April.
