Jake Paul is clearly impressed with basketball star Draymond Green’s punching process.
The four-time NBA All-Star connected with a crushing right hand to the chin of Golden State Warriors teammate Jordan Poole during practice this week.
TMZ sourced and released the shocking footage Friday, prompting Paul to give Green an offer to cross over into a new sport.
“Gotta get Draymond Green in the boxing ring,” Paul proclaimed on social media. “Draymond, I got $10 million for you to get in the ring on the next Most Valuable Promotions pay-per-view. Who do you want, Draymond?”
The 32-year-old Green is a tenacious and rugged player who is a seven-time All Defensive player and four-time champion.
The Michigan-bred Green is also a big-time boxing fan, as he’s been seen ringside for several notable fights in recent years.
Paul would like to fight Green, too.
“To be clear the JP that Draymond slept is Jordan Poole. This JP would sleep Draymond in one round,” said Paul.
Paul even wondered who would in a fight between Green and former NBA star Deron Williams, who fought and knocked down NFL star Frank Gore last year in an exhibition boxing match.
Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) returns to the ring on Oct. 29 to fight MMA legend Anderson Silva on Showtime pay-per-view.
