Carl Froch believes Jake Paul is not 'stupid' enough to fight him

‘He’s not that stupid!’ Carl Froch doesn’t believe Jake Paul would accept his offer of a fight… as the former world champion joins Tony Bellew in calling out the YouTube star

  • Former world champion Carl Froch doubts Jake Paul will accept his fight invite
  • Paul will face Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 6 in his sixth professional fight 
  • Froch previously claimed he would not even bother training to face-off with Paul

Carl Froch does not believe Jake Paul is stupid enough to accept his offer of a fight after he called the YouTube sensation out. 

Having turned professional as a boxer, Paul has made shockwaves throughout the sport and not always for the right reasons as has already made enemies of the likes of UFC star Conor McGregor and fellow boxer Tony Bellew.

Paul’s next bout is against Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 16, and he already has five professional fights to his name.

Responding on Twitter to speculation he could fight Paul, Froch said: ‘He’s not that stupid!’

Froch did not dampen speculation that the two could soon face-off, and if anything he stoked the rumours with a jab Paul will surely respond to. 

To suggestions of a fight, Froch said on Twitter: ‘He’s not that stupid!’

Although he is still retired, Froch had previously said: ‘I would [fight Paul] yeah, because I wouldn’t consider that to be a fight.

‘I know he’s doing what he is doing, and he is improving, and he has people that want to watch him box, which is great, fair play to him.

Hasim Rahman Jr is the first man that Paul has faced with a background in professional boxing

‘But somebody like that, how do I put it, if I tried to play football against the top clubs, it’s going to be pointless me being on the bench, or me playing tennis against the top players. 

‘Jake Paul is playing at being a professional boxer, but he is not. He can’t really fight, he knows how to stand up straight and he knows how to swing a punch, but he’s not a professional boxer.

‘So to answer your question, if Jake Paul called me out, then absolutely. I wouldn’t even train for it, I’d take him on, I’d beat him up, and I’d get a good pay day because it’s Jake Paul, then I would go home happy.’ 

Jake Paul took to Instagram to troll his previous opponents for failing to promote their fights

Paul is already caught in a feud with Rahman Jr. ahead of their fight in August, after the YouTube star claimed he was doing all the heavy lifting in the promotion of their fight. 

Paul released a spoof video earlier this week, claiming that he was suffering from a broken back as a result of doing the majority of the promotion from all five of his professional contests so far.

Posted to his Instagram account, Paul appears to be distressed in a hospital bed, with his girlfriend, 27-year-old Julia Rose, appearing as his nurse by his bedside.

in retort, Rahman Jr wrote: ‘@JakePaul Mr ‘Increase Fighters Pay’ Maybe if I wasn’t getting 0% of the PPV you’d have some help. Don’t blame me Dumb***’
