Muhammad Ali’s grandsons are not interested in fighting Jake Paul
Celebrity boxing has been one of the most talked-about aspects of boxing in recent years. Subsequently, this has brought a lot of attention and interest to boxing. Especially from the fans of celebrities who would not follow the sport before celebrity boxing became a trend.
Within celebrity boxing, Jake Paul has become a well-known and prominent figure who has a record of 7-1. Paul has lost to professional boxer Tommy Fury and will be fighting another pro boxer, André August, next. In addition, Paul has expressed the desire to fight Walsh and his brother Nico Ali Walsh in MMA and boxing, respectively.
However, neither of Ali’s grandsons is interested in fighting Paul, even if it involves a lot of money. Furthermore, they would rather solidify their careers because they already have a hard time proving themselves as legitimate fighters.
