YouTuber Jake Paul targets NFL after boxing career before breaking into film and TV shows in Hollywood | The Sun

JAKE PAUL fancies having a go at NFL before hitting the red carpet of Hollywood after he finishes his boxing career.

The YouTuber has won all five of his fights so far and is due to take onAnderson Silva next.


But Paul, 25, is already planning out his career after he had hung the gloves up.

And not surprisingly after becoming a social media sensation, the Ohio personality fancies trying his hand at acting.

But not one for shying away, Paul also wants to try out the heavy-hitting sport of NFL while he's in his youth.

Speaking exclusively to SunSport in February 2021: "It's the original reason why I moved to Los Angeles and, you know, we're working on some things hopefully this year that are going to allow me to do a movie or a TV show.

"Right now obviously boxing the focus and it takes up so much time, but I would love to act and I have some ideas for some, some movies and stuff like that.

"I like action comedy. That's always my favourite. And that's like the roles I sort of see myself playing after boxing.

"I'm either gonna go to the NFL or, or become an actor, I'm still deciding, but those are my to do list."

Paul has won all five of his professional boxing bouts by KO.

The second was a brutal battering of former basketball star Nate Robinson, who face-planted straight to the canvas.

Paul then chased Conor McGregor for a boxing scrap offering the Irish star $50illion.

But McGregor lost his UFC rematch against Dustin Poirier which led Paul to reduce the offer to '$10,000 cash'.

And speaking to SunSport last year, that mouthwatering match-up doesn't seem to appeal so much now.

He said: "Conor McGregor was at the top of that list at one point, but due to his recent losses he’s just not as exciting.
