Butterbean has had 58 wins by KO in his career and is ready to return to the ring

He finished his boxing career with a record of 77-10-4 and has been without a win in the ring since 2007.

Butterbean has never competed in a world championship during his two decades in boxing. However, he switched to kickboxing and MMA, competing in fights against Brazilian legend Zuluzinho and five-time World’s Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski.

Now, after spending time living and training with the WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page and joining their DDP Yoga program, Butterfabo is ready to fight again.

“I feel in the best shape I’ve ever had,” he said.

“I’m at war. You’ll have to listen to my upcoming podcast to find out exactly how much weight I’ve lost, but I haven’t weighed this in over 20 years, so that will give you an idea.

“The big announcement is that I will fight one last battle. It will be in a year. Jake Paul, if you’re ready, I’m here for you, my friend.

“Let’s get it, you and Jake Paul. I bet it would be a wonderful fight. After you have said what you said about me in the magazine, I am ready to fight you. Are you ready? I don’t think so. ”

Paul might not like to face a man who stood at 5 ft1 in and weighed a massive 378 lbs. at its peak, but he plans to return to action on August 13th.

Although his opponent has not yet been announced, Paul has not reacted well to comparisons with Butterbean after his brutal knockout of Nate Robinson on the Mike Tyson sub-card against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020.

“They can leave. I stole the show, “Paul said.

“I understand why people still don’t want to respect me. I work. I’ve dedicated my whole life to this, I’ve lost so many opportunities for this sport, all because I want to box. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’ve already made a lot of money. Now I want to die a legend. “

Butterbean would be a dangerous enemy but certainly beyond his first moment

Paul gradually gains respect in the fighting game with names like Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones respectful of the impact they had on boxing and the fans they brought to the sport.

His 5-0 record with four knockouts features a number of top names from different sports in boxing, now the real test is to see how Paul is doing against career boxers.

The Problem Child, 25, told talkSPORT in April that his goal is to win a world title in the coming years and then face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
