Jake Paul had an exceptional 2021.

“The Problem Child” logged three in-ring appearances last year and scored two knockout victories en route to maintaining his undefeated pro boxing record.

In 2022, Paul is wasting no time leveling up on his clout and continuing to set the fight world on fire.

The Jake Paul Effect

While the world drooled over Paul on a boat with Drake for New Year’s Eve, Paul was also busy coming for his nemesis Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his company Mayweather Promotions.

Paul took to social media to lay out his plans for 2022, and it staggered right into the antagonizing zone of “TBE.”

“Some people are asking about my 2022 goals

Here they are

1. Buy Mayweather Promotions and save them from bankruptcy
2. Hire stylist for Floyd Mayweather
3. Take selfie with Oprah
4 Go 2 chiropractor 2 heal back from carrying the sport of boxing.”

Poking The Bear

Paul first began poking the bear with Mayweather back in the lead-up to his brother Logan Paul’s exhibition match against him back in June. Paul grabbed Mayweather’s hat off his head during a press conference and created the catchphrase “gotcha hat,” which became a cult sensation.

Pul even tattooed the phrase on his body and filmed the real-life trolling. Since then, Mayweather and his protegè Gervonta “Tank” Davis have taken potshots at Paul throughout the year.

According to reports, before Mayweather fought Logan, he challenged Jake Paul to a real boxing match.

No Flex Zone

“If it’s a real fight, then I’ll go down to my real fighting weight class, which is 147 pounds or 154 pounds,” said Mayweather. “If Jake Paul can come down to 154 pounds, then we can see his skills.”

However, after the Logan Paul fight, Mayweather emphatically insists he will not fight again. That has not stopped the younger Paul from dreaming out loud.

On the heels of Jake Paul knocking out Tyron Woodley in highlight-reel style in the sixth round last month, Paul took to social media to announce his following five targets.

Making A List. Checking It Twice.

My boxing bucket list:

1) Canelo Alvarez
2) Floyd Mayweather
3) Mike Tyson
4) Tyson Furry
5) Dana White

Paul clearly understands the power of manifestation, and he is trying relentlessly to light a fire under Mayweather and potentially spur him to come out of retirement.

But Paul also has targeted Mayweather Promotions and is now floating the idea that the company is on the verge of bankruptcy. Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, and boxing advisor Al Haymon have built a powerhouse company on the back of its namesake.

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Now that Mayweather is retired, the team has built up Gervonta “Tank” Davis. The Baltimore native is selling out arenas across the country, selling pay-per-views, and creeping up the pound-for-pound lists.

Mayweather is a fighter-first advocate, like Jake Paul, who is currently coming at UFC President Dana White for his questionable fighter pay scale.

Although Paul is a troll looking to create fight hype, his focus on Mayweather Promotions business seems as misguided as it is fascinating. Still, Paul sets the tone for his 2022 and rise in the sports entertainment business.
