Social media stars and traditional fighters often collide in the ever-changing world of combat sports. After his recent win against MMA star Nate Diaz, Jake Paul is all ears for his next challenge. Amidst the challenge hunt, Jake Paul has made a significant callout. Moreover, this callout has sparked immense intrigue and debate among his fans.
How did Muhammad Ali’s grandson react to the wish of Jake Paul?
According to an article by Boxing Scene, Nico Ali Walsh has made his stance on Jake Paul’s fight callout clear. In a recent interview, Nico Walsh said, “That’s funny… I have been asked that a few times. I would say that for me personally, right now, that’s not something I’d be interested in now.”
Furthermore, he eked saying, “I want to make a career for myself, I want to continue my grandfather’s legacy in boxing and carve my own path as well.”
Indeed, his refusal stems from the size difference and the nature of the challenge. Evidently, a fight with Paul doesn’t fit his goals. So, sadly, this fight won’t happen. Additionally, Nico is committed to his craft and wants to preserve his legendary grandfather’s legacy. Moreover, he respects traditional fighting paths. Therefore, he has dismissed the callout. However, Paul’s PFL Deal allows him to go beyond boxing.
