Jake Paul boxing record: All opponents & fight results so far
YouTuber Jake Paul shocked fans when he decided to become a pro boxer, and he’s proven himself with a few wins already. Here’s ‘The Problem Child’s’ boxing record and a list of everyone he’s fought thus far.
Jake Paul is arguably the face of influencer boxing, although he didn’t start the trend — that credit goes to his older brother, Logan Paul, as well as KSI and Joe Weller — he’s taken the proverbial bull by the horns to become one of the craze’s most prolific athletes.
Here’s a comprehensive list of everyone Jake has boxed thus far, including opponents he almost faced off with but didn’t get the chance to meet in the ring, and his comprehensive boxing record.
The two made their boxing debut on the undercard of KSI vs Logan Paul 1 back in 2018. Although Jake Paul got quite the bloody nose from the encounter, he ultimately defeated Deji — and subsequently sparked his current hunger for taking on the biggest and toughest names in combat sports.
Jake Paul won the match by referee stoppage in the fifth round.
Jake Paul would cement his status as an influencer-boxer with his next bout against British YouTube star AnEsonGib in 2020.
This match was an easy one for the Problem Child, who knocked out his opponent cold in the very first round, giving him an ego boost that followed him into his next fight against Nate Robinson.
Nate Robinson, 2020
Jake Paul would make a major leap in his boxing career with his bout against NBA star Nate Robinson. A high-profile match between the basketball pro and the budding YouTuber and boxer, this fight drew interested eyes across the net — partly because it happened on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.
Paul managed to wear Robinson down near the end of the first round, but finally got the knockout in the second round.
Ben Askren, 2021
Paul upped the ante on his next opponent, former Olympic mixed martial artist Ben Askren. This marked Jake’s first foray into a fight with a pro fighter, retired or not — and it set him up for another major win on his record.
Tyron Woodley 1, 2021
Jake’s next biggest challenge would be his bout against former five-time UFC champ Tyron Woodley. This fight had all kinds of trash-talk leading up to clash night — including a hilarious bet between the two opponents that would have Woodley getting ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattooed on himself if he lost.
Although it’s uncertain if Woodley actually kept his promise, Jake ended up taking yet another victory over the seasoned combat sports vet, winning the bout by split decision after going the full eight rounds.
Paul, however, wasn’t pleased with the commission’s ruling and wanted his knockout… which he got in their eventual rematch.
Tyron Woodley 2, 2021
Initially, Jake was scheduled to take his next fight against British boxer and reality TV star Tommy Fury, but a last-minute injury caused the Brit to bow out.
As a last resort, Paul secured a rematch against Fury; and in December 2021, he got his long-awaited KO, knocking Woodley out in the sixth round to finally settle the score.
Anderson Silva, 2022
In October 2022, Jake Paul had the biggest fight of his career thus far — stepping into the ring with Brazilian MMA star Anderson Silva.
While ‘The Problem Child’ predicted he’d finish the fight by stoppage before the end of the fifth round, 47-year-old Silva managed to keep up and take it the distance.
The decision went to the officials after eight intense rounds — with Jake ultimately taking the win by unanimous decision.
Tommy Fury, 2023
After multiple delays and issues, Jake Paul finally stepped into the ring against Tommy Fury in February of 2023. Paul had nearly fought Tommy Fury twice prior to the actual fight. However, when the two did finally step in the ring together, Jake was served his first loss in his boxing career.
Judges awarded Fury victory via scorecards, with a 74-75 for Paul and 2x 76-73 for Fury, resulting in an overall victory for the former Love Island star. After taking the loss against Fury, Paul’s rematch clause has come into effect, meaning the boxers will see a rematch sometime down the line.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on when the two decide to jump back into the ring together for a second brawl.
Nate Diaz, 2023
Jake Paul battled with former UFC contender Nate Diaz on August 5, 2023, in a ten-round pro boxing match in Dallas, Texas. He showcased considerable improvements to his boxing, particularly his left hook.
Paul came out firing and looked as though he could secure a first-round knockout after swarming Diaz with strong punches. However, the crafty MMA veteran survived the onslaught and made it through the opening stages.
In round five, Paul knocked Diaz down with a powerful left hook, delivering the best punch of the night. By this point, Paul was well in front on the scorecards and just needed to last the distance. He did just that — even when Diaz eventually turned it on in the final stages of the fight.
In the end, Paul celebrated a hard-fought victory that helped re-establish his career as a professional boxer following his defeat against Tommy Fury earlier in 2023. He won via unanimous decision (97-92, 98-91, 98-91).
Hasim Rahman Jr.
After Tommy Fury bowed out of their August 2022 bout, Paul was forced to look for another opponent, instead — and settled on pro boxer Hasim Rahman Jr., the son of an established heavyweight champ.
Unfortunately, this fight was also canceled after Hasim allegedly planned to weigh in ten pounds below the 215 lb Cruiserweight class. Paul lashed out at Hasim for not keeping to the terms of their arrangement, while the opponent claimed he could make weight in time and urged Paul to “put on the gloves.”
Jake Paul’s boxing record
All in all, Jake’s boxing record is 7-1, excluding his amateur bout against Deji in 2018, which he also won.
Jake has secured four victories by KO, as well as winning one by split decision and two by unanimous decision.
