After challenging Meek Mill to a fight earlier this year, Tekashi 69 has another potential opponent in celebrity boxer, Jake Paul.
During a Q&A on Instagram, Jake Paul was asked if he would consider fighting Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 69. According to Paul he would have no problem going on-one-on with 69, but noted that it wouldn’t be much of a fight. In facT, Paul doesn’t even think Tekashi would show up.
“I want to because he deserves to get his ass beat and I want to do it for all the people he’s disrespected. But honestly, would be too easy. And, a 30 second fight. Plus he wouldn’t show up in the ring on the day of the fight. But yes I would love to knock him out.”
Jake Paul is probably referring to the disrespect Tekahsi 69 has shown King Von since his passing. Most recently Tekashi mocked Lil Reese after the rapper was grazed by a bullet while sitting in stole vehicle. Tekashi would go on Instagram poking fun at Lil Reese and even created a Go Fund Me account with a goal of $2,000 in hopes of buying Lil Reese his own car.
“I think he’s on steroids like his security guard who passed away @jakepaul,” Tekashi wrote in the comments as he responded to Jake Paul’s fighting words. Tekashi is talking about Shamir Bolivar, who was the CEO of Shadow Group Security. Shamir passed away on April 7 at the age of 46 and according to reports Shamir used to provide security for 6ix9ine as well.
Jake a boxer himself, is also the brother of Logan Paul who has an upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather on June 6th at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Earlier this month during the May 6th press conference for the Logan Vs. Mayweather fight, Jake decided to snatch Floyd’s hat and all hell broke lose. In facT Jake was banned from attending the fight, but just the other day on May 18th, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, Leonard Ellerbe, said Jake’s banned was lifted. Jake would also create merch that read “Gotcha Hat” and a tattoo which can be seen below.
For Jake to make those comments, one must believe it’s all for publicity and perhaps an attempt to lure Tekashi 69 to an actual fight which would generate an incredible amount of money. Jake’s brother, Logan, actually interviewed Tekashi 69 back in September of 2020 for the IMPAULSIVE podcast.
