TimTheTatman gives honest opinion on Jake Paul’s boxing career
YouTube streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar brought up this phenomenon during a live broadcast after Paul’s latest victory.
While he doesn’t necessarily believe Jake is on par with legends like Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, Tim does argue that the youngest Paul bro is certainly bringing life back into the ‘sweet science’ thanks to his audience.
“Do I think Jake Paul is on any level like Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson, or any of these legends, right, that I know from boxing?” he asked. “Obviously not.”
“Obviously, those guys are in their own ballpark, in my opinion,” he continued. “But, at the end of the day, Jake is getting eyes on boxing. Regardless of whether you hate him or you love him. That is something you can’t deny. You can’t deny it.”
“I really don’t care about boxing that much, but I’ve been watching his journey along this boxing transition. … I’m sure a lot of people are like, ‘Aw dude, they’re just casuals.’ All I’m saying is man, that’s a lot of casuals that are watching now. Myself included.”

Tim isn’t alone in his thinking; several other high-profile names have expressed similar sentiments in the past, including Mike Tyson himself, who was rumored to be facing off against Logan Paul sometime in the future (although this proposed bout has yet to be confirmed).
It’s unclear who Jake Paul’s next opponent will be, but one thing is certain; the Problem Child is just getting started.
