Darrell Taylor Calls Out Jake Paul- Will It Happen?

Jake silenced his critics with a TKO in the first round, when many predicted that he would have a tough night. But Darrell has been left feeling far from impressed. In an interview on the Watch With Us: Challenge Edition podcast, he said: “Don’t get me wrong. This isn’t a hate kind of interview. I love what he’s [Jake is] doing.

“He’s an entertainer. I love that. But he’s pumping himself up as a great fighter and boxer.” And Darrell did not stop there. Many Youtubers have taken to the ring, with the biggest being Logan Paul. He is set to take on one of the greatest names of all time: Floyd Mayweather. And yet, Darrell sees this as an embarrassment to the sport of boxing.

He added: “I just feel like they’re making a mockery out of boxing. Boxing saved my life. When I was younger…I was drinking, smoking weed every day, getting fat, getting out of shape. I was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to go to the boxing gym.”

Whether Jake is mocking the sport does not take away from the fact, he is still taking a risk by walking into the ring. Having said that, if Jake is making more money than other professional fighters have made, then Darrell does have a point. And he is intent on setting the record straight by offering to take on Jake himself.

He continued: “I feel like he’s disrespecting boxing. He’s gassing himself up way too much. So when I see this, and he’s saying, ‘Who should [I] fight next?’ Well, why don’t you fight somebody who knows what it’s like to be in the ring?”

For all the enthusiasm coming Darrell’s way, it seems Jake is preoccupied with other fighters. He recently called out Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury. And with the potential money on the line being so huge, the Youtuber would be foolish not to take it, should it transpire. As for Darrell, the only thing that he can continue to do is call Jake out.
