Jake Paul is using his large social media following to shine a spotlight on emerging boxing talents.
He's teaming up with Team USA to support and promote fighters gearing up for the Olympics. The internet personality, known as The Problem Child, with millions of followers, will be present at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado and the Paris Games in 2024, sharing their journey on his social media accounts.
Jake has already been hanging out with Olympic boxers such as Joshua Edwards and Morelle McCane, both of whom attended his recent first-round knockout victory over Andre August this past weekend.
The 26-year-old spoke about the decision to work with Team USA ... telling TMZ Sports, "It has always been my goal to shine a spotlight not just on boxing as a sport, but on the people who work so hard to be the best within it."
"The mindset of pursuing greatness is one I both see and personally share with Mo McCane, Joshua Edwards, and the rest of Team USA's boxing talent. The Olympics are the greatest stage in the world, and I'm honored to help bring awareness to USA Boxing and mentor these young, inspiring athletes as they fight for gold. Anyone who works hard enough to receive the honor to represent Team USA at the Olympics deserves a platform, so I'm looking forward to getting down to business in Colorado Springs with Coach [Billy] Walsh and the rest of Team USA."
Certainly, USA Boxing has been the training ground for some big names in the sport, like Oscar De La Hoya, Muhammad Ali, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Evander Holyfield. Besides boosting the fighters' presence on his social media, Jake will offer advice to the athletes on building their personal brands. And, we can expect a few sparring sessions thrown into the mix as well.
