Jake Paul will finally make his return on 15th December, with a totally different agenda. Paul has shifted his focus from securing high Pay-Per-View generating events to building a boxing legacy. Jake Paul made an official announcement, where he revealed his next opponent – Paul will face the professional boxer Andre August.
Social media interestingly has an issue with this match up, too, as they are highlighting Andre August’s inactivity. August has only fought 1 opponent in the span of 4 years, and fans also criticized the 9 year age gap between him and Jake Paul.
This boxing match is scheduled for 8 rounds and will happen in the cruiserweight division. Andre August has a professional record of 10-1 (5 knockouts). He claims to be hungrier than Paul, and it will be fascinating to see if he can be the second professional boxer to claim a victory against Paul.
The press conference details shall soon be announced.
