One of YouTube’s biggest stars, and now one of boxing’s most controversial personalities, Jake Paul has cemented himself as one of the sport’s biggest draws.
Just like his brother Logan Paul, Jake first rose to fame on Vine before shifting to YouTube where he predominantly posted prank videos and his hip-hop music. The Paul brothers have found themselves mired in various scandals due to their wild antics. The two eventually decided to give up their eye-catching shenanigans that landed them in trouble and took up professional careers as fighters.
After being fired from the role of Dirk Mann in the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark, Paul made the switch to boxing in Aug. 2018 after winning an amateur match against British YouTuber Deji Olatunji by TKO. The 26-year-old most recently defeated the 38-year-old Nate Diaz by unanimous decision in Aug. 2023, and is going strong with just one defeat in three years of his professional boxing career.
In preparation for his MMA debut, Paul has now also signed a multi-year contract with the Professional Fighters League and started practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu with Mo Jassim, the ADCC’s chief organizer, and Michael Perez, an ATOS BJJ black belt. But what qualifies this brazenly outspoken YouTube star with spiky blond hair as a fighter? Check out Jake Paul’s height and weight below!
