Anthony Taylor (7-5) recaps his sparring session with Jake Paul before his upcoming boxing matchup against Ben Askren this Saturday. Anthony also talks about what surprised him about Jake, if Jake would do well in MMA and his overall thoughts on the Youtube star.

“Jake surprised me, he’s done good. He’s really decent for a guy whos’ just picked up boxing from being off the streets. After a year and a half, two years of boxing he’s done pretty good for himself. You can see the hard work and dedication that he’s putting in to it. Can he be a professional boxer at cruiserweight? No. Can he go to Mexico and win a couple of smokers? Yeah, absolutely. He’s a cub at the moment but he’ll soon be a lion.”
