Antonio Brown vs. Jake Paul needs to happen

The NFL’s favorite jokester (outside of Urban Meyer) strikes again!

In my opinion, this hypothetical event would have the potential to be one of the biggest fights of all time.

The NFL regular season is now over, and it brought some crazy moments, especially in just the past few weeks. One of the biggest headlines this season was Antonio Brown leaving the field mid-game, taking off his jersey, and being cut from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brown left the field after head coach Bruce Arians told him to go into the game. Brown refused, claiming he had an ankle injury. According to Arians, Brown did not tell him about any kind of injury and simply refused to go into the game.

Although his NFL career seems to be over, at least for now, Brown has not slowed down online since being cut. Right after he left the game, he posted a photo of himself with the caption “Super Gremlin” on Twitter. He then thanked the Buccaneers on social media just a few hours later. The next night, Brown was seen sitting courtside in Brooklyn watching the Nets take on the Grizzlies.

On top of all this, he has also released several songs on YouTube. It seems like AB is not afraid to do anything online. In my opinion, the next thing he could do for publicity is fight against Jake Paul.

Jake Paul has been in five fights in his “professional” career, and has five wins, four of them by KO. Some people online think that Paul has only chosen to fight people that he knows he can beat, but a fight with AB would be an event that would “break the internet”.

There were rumors in 2020 that Brown would fight Jake Paul’s brother, Logan, after a video of him training for the fight went viral. But, Brown claimed that Paul was promoting the fight, though it was not confirmed, and threatened to sue. Despite the rumors and drama between the two, this fight never ended up happening.

Jake Paul has made over $25 million so far from boxing, and is only 24. Of course, he was famous before he started fighting, and this shows that if he fights someone, millions will be watching. That combined with people who follow Antonio Brown, both fans and haters, could be one of the largest fights of the past decade. Not necessarily because these two are the best fighters in the world, but because they are both so unpredictable and crazy.

Of course, there is a possibility that Antonio Brown has CTE (which he likely does), and this would only make it worse. But fans have been speculating that this fight could be coming since he will no longer be making money from the NFL.

As of now, it is unlikely that Brown’s NFL career will continue.

As far as who would win this hypothetical fight, I have no idea. This is one that I think could go either way. Of course, Jake Paul is undefeated in his career so far, but many think that is because he has not fought anyone who is particularly good at boxing. Brown would definitely give Paul some real competition that he has not faced before.
