American social media personality and professional boxer Jake Paul knows an opportunity when he sees one.
We know two things to be truthful. First, the Golden State Warriors situation with Draymond Green and Jordan Poole was always going to get uglier before it got prettier. And second, when there’s a big story on the internet, it doesn’t take long for Jake Paul to get involved.
The following the circulation of a viral clip that saw NBA star Draymond Green landing a clean knockout punch of teammate Jordan Poole on friday, Paul tweeted about the incident and not only seemed impressed with Green’s punching power, but went as far as to make a lucrative offer for the former Defensive Player of the Year to box under his Most Valuable Promotions banner.

“Draymond I got $10 million for you to get in the ring on the next Most Valuable Promotions pay per view,” Paul wrote, tagging Green. “Who you want?”
While there’s no chance that the offer amounts to anything, it wouldn’t be the first time that Paul got involved with a Warrior boxing. The YouTube celebrity, who now has five professional boxing matches under his belt (all wins, but all against non-boxers), made his professional debut in 2020 against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. But his second fight? A bout against former Warrior Nate Robinson, which ended in a second-round knockout win for Paul, per Golden State of Mind.
It doesn’t sound like Paul — whose next fight is scheduled for later this month against retired UFC legend Anderson Silva — wants to fight Green, just get him to box under the banner of his promotion, which was founded in 2021.
Green has a reputation as both one of the greatest defensive players in NBA history and one of the sport’s most notorious agitators, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the 32-year-old strap on the gloves especially if Paul’s offer is even remotely serious.
As for “The Problem Child,” he is set to fight UFC legend Anderson Silva in a boxing bout that serves as the headline of a Showtime pay-per-view event on Oct. 29 in Glendale, Ariz.
This is all incredibly silly, of course, but it’s the age of the internet that we’re in. And hopefully it can provide a little levity in light of a very ugly situation. But don’t worry: we won’t be seeing Green in a boxing ring any time soon. And hopefully we won’t be seeing him throwing any more punches any time soon, either.
