Antonio Tarver: ‘I Really Want To Kick Jake Paul’s Ass’
Antonio Tarver isn’t a fan of YouTube personality Jake Paul.
On November 28, Paul went one-on-one with former NBA star Nate Robinson. The bout served as the co-main event for the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card. Paul knocked out Robinson cold in the second round. This is Paul’s second pro boxing victory.
Tarver was well aware of Paul vs. Robinson and he took to his Twitter account to respond. It’s clear that “The Magic Man” wants a piece of Paul.

“I really want to kick Jake Paul’s ass for what he did to Nate Robinson last night and rid boxing of these clowns once and for all. He fought a complete novice so fighting me shouldn’t be a problem… Mike Tyson, make this fight.”
Tarver is a former light-heavyweight champion. He holds victories over the likes of Roy Jones Jr., Glen Johnson, and Clinton Woods. At the age of 52, however, he’s itching to get back inside the boxing ring against Paul. Tarver has had a fight since August 14, 2015.
Paul has helped lead the way when it comes to the YouTube boxing craze. Things got kickstarted by Jake’s brother Logan with his 2018 exhibition match with KSI. The two ended up having a pro bout under Matchroom Boxing in 2019, which KSI won via split decision.
