Jake Paul calls out Tim Tebow for boxing match
Jake Paul has boxed a fellow YouTuber (AnEsonGib), a former NBA player (Nate Robinson) and a pair of MMA fighters (Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley), and he’s defeated them all. So, who’s next?
How about Tim Tebow?
That’s right. Paul is never shy about calling out potential opponents on social media, and on Wednesday, he tweeted at the former Florida quarterback and current SEC Network analyst possibly trying to set up a match for the future:
aye @TimTebow I think it’s time for you to get into boxing ?!

Paul is fresh off his most recent win over Woodley, as he defeated the former UFC welterweight champion by split decision on Sunday night in Cleveland. It was the first time in Paul’s brief professional boxing career that he didn’t win by KO or TKO.
As for Tebow, he has a bit more free time than he did last month. Nearly 5 years after becoming a minor-league baseball player, he attempted an NFL comeback as a tight end, signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are now led by former Gators head coach Urban Meyer.
However, Tebow couldn’t earn a spot on the team, and now, his playing days may be over. Especially considering he just landed an expanded role at ESPN that will include appearances on “First Take.”
Even though Tebow couldn’t make it to the major leagues in baseball or successfully return to the NFL, he’s still in great athletic shape. How would that translate to the boxing ring? Well, that may depend on how much fighting experience he has, which may not be much.
Still, Paul vs. Tebow would likely attract plenty of viewers. And considering both Paul and Tebow are always unpredictable with their next moves, who knows? Maybe this will actually happen, as unlikely as it seems.
