Interview with Anthony “Pretty Boy” Taylor above – Check it out
Anthony Taylor (7-5) talks about sparring Jake Paul before his upcoming boxing matchup against Ben Askren on April 17. Anthony also talks about how this came together, flying to Miami next week with coach Antonio McKee and his ambitions of making it to the UFC. Taylor believes Paul’s coach BJ Flores is a man of his word and that the sparring session will take place next week.
“The sparring will take place in Miami, I’ll be flying out hopefully with Antonio (McKee) and Baby Slice. It will most likely happen on Friday (9th) because I fly in on Thursday. It’s typical sparring but a little bit more intense because you’ll be wearing headgear. It will happen, BJ (Flores) seems like a good man of his word. I have to sign a waiver, I don’t know if they’ll have me sign an NDA. I’m going to keep it professional, I’m not here trying to kill the guy. I’m here give him work and see where he’s at. At the end of the day, why would I hurt the man from making his money?”
