Michael Bisping slams Jake Paul for ‘being a bully,’ disrespecting sport of boxing with latest fight

Michael Bisping has had enough of Jake Paul.

Paul (9-1, 6 KOs) knocked out Ryan Bourland in the first round of their 200-pound bout Saturday in San Juan, Puerto Rico. On paper, Bourland’s 19 professional fights made him Paul’s most experienced opponent to date. However, once the bell rang, it was clear Bourland was overmatched.

“Jake Paul was always destined to win this fight, and you are the suckers if you paid for this fight, and I know most people didn’t,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “Unfortunately, the opponent was utter dog sh*t and couldn’t make it through one round. How was he able to get it done? Because he’s just so good.

“He expected a second round, but my God, the guy did it in Round 1. I mean, this guy’s the future. He was swinging punches like an absolute maniac, leaving openings to get countered all day long against a decent boxer. But he doesn’t have that threat because he wasn’t going up against a trained pro.”

Paul, who now holds wins over the likes of former UFC champions Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva, continued to call out undisputed 168-pound champion Canelo Alvarez after the fight, which Bisping thinks is ridiculous.

“He’s calling out Canelo because he knows damn well that fight is not going to happen,” Bisping said. “Canelo Alvarez would not wipe his ass with a Jake Paul payday. He doesn’t want a circus sideshow, freakshow fights, OK? He is disrespecting the sport of boxing.

“He’s disrespecting all the people that worked their way up but more importantly, he’s conning the fans. If Ryan Bourland is your next Uber driver, give him five stars and give him a good tip. Beating people that you know you can beat, that’s called being a bully.”
