Jake Paul has a penchant for theatrics. The Problem Child pulled the limelight on him again by signaling that he is ready for a war with Nate Diaz, by pulling to the arena in a tank.
With a history of ruling the social media space, YouTube boxing influencer Jake Paul knows what gets the attention of people. Paul has been doing this for quite a while and this time around, he only seems to have upped his game. Ahead of one of his most anticipated bouts with Nate Diaz, the younger Paul brother decided to arrive in a tank.
The 26-year-old appeared calm and collected as he posed on top of a tank ahead of his fight against Nate Diaz. Through his heavily theatrical antics, Paul is probably trying to prove that he is putting maximum effort into the Nate Diaz fight and that he is ready for a war.
With his huge entrance, Paul seems to have gotten the attention of everyone on social media as well. While some believe that Jake cannot lose the fight, arriving in a tank, others feel it is simply a show before he loses to Nate Diaz. “Deluded rich idiots,” commented a fan on Jake Paul’s entrance.
Paul is coming off a decision loss to Tommy Fury in his last fight in February. Jake’s boxing career is at a critical juncture, as he might consider retiring from the sport if he loses this fight. Regardless, Jake’s ability to steal attention remains unmatched.
Jake Paul arrived on a horse for Anderson Silva’s open workout
Before the Nate Diaz bout, Jake Paul had the same theatrical antics but on a much smaller scale while going against Anderson Silva. Paul kicked off his fight week against Silva by entering the open workout in style.
The UFC legend, Anderson Silva, arrived at the open workout with his ensemble and interacted with his fans. However, Jake Paul caught everyone’s attention by arriving at the open workout on a horse. Jake Paul seemed to have embraced the fighting spirit as he rode gladiator style to the venue.
“I’m going to war, feel like a warrior, a gladiator, that’s really what this is on Saturday. This is one of the toughest fighters in the world, a combat sports legend. It’s not going to be an easy fight, so I’ve got to come in on the horse like I’m preparing for battle,” said Jake Paul.
Jake Paul’s war mentality surely helped him secure a win against Anderson Silva in the past. Looks like the Youtuber-turned-boxer is feeling stronger than ever if his mode of transport is taken as a sign of his strength.
Regardless, the warrior mentality appears to be the same as Jake takes on an MMA icon and a certified ‘baddest’ fighter. Will Paul’s big entrance help him avoid a loss against Nate Diaz? The results are only a couple of hours away.
