Jake Paul has already called out Ricky ‘FaZe Banks’ Banks over a Boxing match and despite Jake already showing the world what he can do in the ring, some FaZe members aren’t impressed.
FaZe Sensei, Isiah Ocasio, helped Jake’s last boxing opponent – Deji ‘Deji’ Olatunji – with some training and pitched his own strategy at the British YouTuber. Despite the defeat, Sensei stated that he wasn’t impressed by Paul and saw weaknesses in his game.
The MMA-trainer and YouTuber stated in a recent video that he believed his fellow FaZe member would benefit from the fight by improving mentally, emotionally and physically – whilst also having a chance to squash his major beef.
“I spent a lot of time studying Jake because I was helping Deji. Now, I was helping Deji from a distance,” said Sensei. “Obviously, I wasn’t his trainer but we did train and I did give him feedback, and I did help with strategy – I told him my strategy, at least.
“And I had an expectation of Jake like right here,” added Sensei, pointing upwards. “And then when Jake showed up, I was surprisingly disappointed in his ability – his natural punching power. His footwork was good but for someone who had been training for a while, I just thought he would have a little bit more pop in his punches, I thought he’d be a little stronger.”
Despite Jake’s win and impressive showing, Sensei believes his friend and fellow FaZe Clan member would have a chance in the ring along as he knuckled down and worked hard for it.
“I’m 100% confident that Ricky, if he had trained and he committed to it, could revise a game plan to definitely beat Jake.”
