In 2021, callouts are frequently given and received by YouTuber-turned-boxing-star Jake Paul. That’s nothing new.
However, Paul took things to the next level Saturday when he compiled a giant inventory of potential opponents – past, current, and future – he hopes to knock off his “hit list” as time goes on.
His three past opponents were listed, as well as his Aug. 29 opponent, Tyron Woodley. But there was a host of new names, as well, who ranged from UFC fighters to boxing champions to celebrities – and even a family member.
Check out Jake Paul’s full “hit list” below:
