Jacques Paul says his DMs are bombarded with verbal beating from the Gypsy King himself, telling us Tommythe brother of the heavyweight champion Tyson is already talking before their fight.
The Problem Child joined Babcock on the “TMZ Sports” TV Show (broadcast every evening on FS1) shortly after Tommy posted some workout footage with his big brother … and Jake gave us his first impression of the video.
Long story short… Jake says Tommy should give up junk food and stop trying to fight like Tyson.
Speaking of… Jake says he and Tyson have been going back and forth on social media, privately exchanging a whole lot of trash talk.
In fact, Jake is sharing one of the voicemail messages with TMZ Sports … and it’s hilarious.
“Jakey Boy, he’s going to wipe you out, Jakey !!!!” Tyson is heard telling Jake.
But, don’t get me wrong, Jake is a HUGE Tyson fan, telling us he only has respect for the best heavyweight fighter in the world.
“You can’t hate the guy. Like Tyson, I love … I love Tyson. I love him to be involved. Great artist. Unfortunately, I have to end his brother’s career.”
Of course, this is undoubtedly the most difficult test for Jake to date… against a promising and undefeated fighter (7-0).
4-0 Paul has already beaten YouTuber AnEson Gib, former NBA star Nate robinson, MMA star and Olympian Ben askren, and more recently, future UFC Hall of Fame Tyron woodley.
There’s more … we also talked to Jake about Deron williams potentially fight Franck Gore on his undercard.
We also asked Paul about Canelo Allvarez and Kamaru Usman – 2 guys who won big on Saturday night – who Jake has a history with … and could possibly fight in the future (hey, don’t put him behind the guy).
The the fight falls on December 18 in Tampa, FL … and it’s safe to say the trash talk is only going to get bigger!
