We have a surprising new entry in the draw for Jake Paul, the UFC light heavyweight legend, “The Iceman” Chuck Liddell.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to Jake Paul, there’s always another surprise lurking around the corner. This time, that surprise is Chuck Liddell.
Chuck Liddell has joined the ever-growing list of MMA fighters around the world who want to box with Paul. That’s right, at 51, Liddell still wants to ditch, as long as it’s a chance for him to pigeonhole “clown” Jake Paul. Or at least that’s what he told a fan when asked about the YouTuber over the weekend.
“I’m ready any minute for that clown,” Liddell stated on Twitter.
This may sound crazy, but Liddell competed in a fight against Tito Ortiz when he was 49 years old and had not fought in eight years. Fans shouldn’t forget either that Paul is looking to capitalize on the Chuck Liddell name. Because a “Jake Paul vs. Chuck Liddell” boxing match may be a circus for legions of people in 2021, it’s hard to argue that it wouldn’t bring in much money given the reported success of Paul vs.
However, realistically, the chances of this happening are slim or nil. Liddell is now in his 50s, officially retiring once again in 2020. So surely this readiness statement from Liddell was just made into some good social media fun and nothing will ever come of it … right ?
The truth now, would you buy a pay-per-view with a boxing match between Jake Paul and Chuck Liddell?
