Soon after the press conference began, Jake Paul made sure to share his feelings toward his upcoming opponent.

“He’s a flake, he’s not a serious businessman. He’s not a serious fighter and I’m going to prove that,” Jake said. “That’s why this fight’s called ‘The Truth’ because the truth’s going to come out. He’s going to have to pay for all the times he’s pulled out and all the business people he screwed over.

“It’s disrespectful. There are some of the biggest names in boxing, some of the biggest promoters in the world, some of the most influential people in the world… and he doesn’t wanna show up because of a ‘private matter.'”
