Rap legend Snoop Dogg is in Jake Paul’s corner for his upcoming boxing match this August — and he’s even willing to put some major money on the YouTube star.

Jake Paul is the undisputed face of YouTube boxing. The social media star and former Disney kid has racked up an undefeated 5-0 record… and he’s only just beginning his pro career.

Paul’s next bout is slated for this coming August, although his opponent has yet to be announced less than three months out.
