AEW Star Challenges Jake Paul To A Boxing Match

AEW Star Challenges Jake Paul To A Boxing Match AEW, WWE

An AEW star has jumped at the chance to challenge famous YouTuber and professional boxer Jake Paul to a boxing match.

Following Paul’s most recent boxing win against former UFC fighter Nate Diaz, the 26-year-old sits with an impressive professional record of 7-1.

Although Paul has showed potential inside the ring, only one of his opponents have actually been professional boxers with Tommy Fury the only outlier.

Considering Fury was also Paul’s only loss inside the ring thus far, many have questioned how he would fare if he stepped up against another ‘real’ boxer.

Thankfully that’s exactly the type of challenge recently presented to him by AEW star and former professional boxer Anthony Ogogo.

Taking to Twitter to lay out the challenge Ogogo said:

.@jakepaul if you want to fight a REAL BOXER!! I’m right here! 🥊

Ogogo, who has an 11-1 record and an Olympic bronze medal to his name, stepped away from the ring in 2019 following an eye injury, which resulted in him pursuing professional wrestling instead.

Despite the challenge being made for his potential boxing return, when it comes to Ogogo’s AEW in-ring career things have been very quiet, last competing for the company in July 2022.

However, Ogogo is still signed to the company and did appear during the AEW All In: London pre-show in a segment alongside Paul Wight, Grado and Jeff Jarrett.

Paul has yet to respond to Ogogo’s challenge but stay tuned to WrestleTalk for any updates if they come.
