    Is he or is he not a boxer ?

    Has he even fought a boxer yet ?

    "Let see him do this against a real boxer"; is kind of a silly argument considering he is green as **** himself. Line him up against the type of guys blue-chip prospects fight in their fourth fight and you’d see the same thing we saw last night.

    Dude is the real deal, and him building his career in his own lane is fine.

    For a valid comparison, I would pick him to KO Omar Chavez, another rich kid who has been training with all the resources in the world for 20 years, if they were in a similar weight class and fought tomorrow. What does that tell you?

    Why is he a YT ''sensation'' ?

    I've only just heard of him.

Like 5% of boxers of today....Who were the real boxers fighting in their first 3 pro fights?
    How many of us would get paid like he does to do that ?

    Money will inspire anyone.

    It inspired that bum Askren.

    Who's on his resume ?

    He's a sideshow ''attraction'' when nothing else is going on.

    lmao at people even talking top 20

    he would get sparked out by a random journeyman, especially one his size, he is fighting not only completely inexperienced guys, but guys who are like 168 max if they were actually in shape

    If he fights and does ok even if he loses against another pro with about 4 or 5 fights preferably also unbeaten, ok then, he is a pro boxer but now he is just some kind of actor who seems to like boxing.

    Charlie Zelenoff was a pro boxer too. As was Andrew Hartley. They will give a license to anyone who can pass a physical and that is the problem. Eventually someone will get hurt and the government will go after boxing as a sport not just "youtube boxers"

    The "real deal" and "ability to excel at boxing" lmao

    He is 24, he isnt going anywhere. All the guys who "started late" all had an amateur background. The guys who had no amateur background when pro as teenagers and were fighting grown men.

    How much experience does he really gain from fighting mid 30s retired basketball players who are 20 pounds lighter than him.

    Prospects are fighting actual boxers. Hand selected sure but actual boxers. If Jake "could" beat them, then why after 3 years has he yet to fight one?
