Jake Paul has announced that his next fight will take place April 17 and that hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg will provide the commentary for it. Paul has recently challenged fighters like Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, who have downplayed the bouts, but maybe they’d be better off accepting the fights?
No denying this kid knows how to market for PPV numbers.

Remember when everyone said Jake Paul was an irrelevant YouTube star who was just trolling for money? He then obliterated former NBA guard Nate Robinson with an uppercut and is now promising “huge musical performances and massive people people in the undercard” for his upcoming fights.
He’s delivered on every promise so far, and it’s paying off in a big way.
And yes, Jake Paul is absolutely trying to get under the skin of his prospective opponents, and he can do so because he has backed it up in the ring. So far.
Could he beat Conor McGregor in the octagon? Not a chance in hell. But the fact that he can get the Irish star to even consider the fight illustrates the influence Paul has these days.
And whether you want to admit it or not–you’re going to watch it.

middle school and high school kids seem to love this guy. One day, out of curiosity, I checked out a few of Jake’s youtube videos. Jake appeared to me to be one of the biggest fools I’d ever seen and even more than that, he appeared to epitomize everything that is wrong with our narcissistic social media obsessed society……Imagine my surprise then, when I watched Jake fight. It shocked the hell out me to see that Jake actually does know how to fight! Haha! I still can’t get over that surprise. And yeah, I am very interested in seeing him fight again. At the very least, even though he is still a youtubing fool, I respect his ability to fight.
There’s no denying the amount of money he has made with this schtick, whatever works man, go for it. I can’t hate on his hustle.
