Dana White, the prominent figure in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and UFC, recently shared his candid thoughts on the controversial YouTuber-turned-boxer, Jake Paul. In a conversation that also touched upon legendary boxer Mike Tyson, White did not hold back his opinions.

Jake Paul, who has managed to generate significant buzz in the boxing world, has been the subject of much debate. When asked about Mike Tyson's thoughts on Jake Paul, White pointed out that Tyson, who is now 58 years old, seemed skeptical about Paul's ambitions. According to White, Jake Paul recently fought a boxer of his own age and lost, which raises questions about his future in the sport.

Intriguingly, Jake Paul has expressed a desire to fight Canelo Alvarez, one of the most formidable boxers of this generation. White did not mince words, suggesting that such a match would result in a quick payday for Canelo, predicting that it would last no more than 30 seconds. White believes that the audience tuning into such a fight would be more interested in seeing if Mike Tyson could knock Paul out rather than watching Paul's skill in the ring.

The discourse underscores the skepticism that surrounds Jake Paul's boxing career, despite his efforts to transition from social media stardom to professional boxing. Dana White's insights provide a compelling narrative about the challenges and perceptions Jake Paul faces within the boxing community.
