Jake Paul challenges Dana White to bet for Anderson Silva fight: ‘Stop being a b*tch’

·2 min read

Jake Paul feels confident heading into his next boxing bout, so much, that he wants to make a hefty bet with Dana White.

Paul, who’s undefeated in his professional boxing run, returns for his sixth fight on Oct 22. Against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The bout is set for eight rounds at a weight of 187 pounds, and takes place Oct. 29 in Pheonix.

Many consider this to be Paul’s toughest challenge yet – and some even thought he wouldn’t take the fight. Now just a month away, Paul wants to up the stakes and challenge the UFC president to a bet.

“No one thought I’d take this fight – even Dana White,” Paul said on Monday’s Paul vs. Silva press conference. “He did not think I would take this fight. And Dana, I know you’re watching, bro. You still owe me a million dollars when you bet against me (versus) Ben Askren.

“I want you to come out of hiding and stop being a b*tch, and make a bet against me and Anderson and actually pay up this time because you didn’t think I’d take this fight. So let’s make a bet. Let’s put one mil, two mil, five mil on it. But I bet you won’t Dana, because you’re a b*tch.”

Paul agrees with the masses and recognizes this is by far his biggest challenge. Paul respects Silva, and won’t take the 47-year-old lightly.

“This is it. This is a make or break moment,” Paul said. “I know that I have someone who just beat a former world champion boxer in front of me. I don’t take him lightly at all. He’s the GOAT of striking, he’s the GOAT of MMA.”
