American media personality Stephen A. Smith has claimed Jake Paul cannot ‘get away with lying’ in regards to his boxing career.
Paul extended his professional record to 5-0 after knocking out Tyron Woodley last weekend in the sixth round of the bout in Florida.
YouTube star Paul had been due to face Tommy Fury only for him to pull out of the fight due to illness and injury.

Smith though claims that Paul’s list of victories are nothing to be impressed about in his career to date.
In a video taken from ESPN show First Take, he accused Paul of being a boxer who doesn’t fight other boxers.
‘Jake Paul can’t get away with lying anymore,’ he said. ‘He has been training with boxers and professional boxing trainers for more than four years, from my understanding.

‘You knocked out a basketball player, you knocked out a dude in Ben Askren who was a UFC fighter. He was a wrestler.
‘Tyron Woodley had the power to knock you out; sure, and he’s knocked people out before. But he’s a wrestler.
‘You’re not fighting boxers. And somewhere along the way, people gotta stop walking around, laughing and acting like it’s alright for you to be beating up on cats that don’t box, while you’re calling yourself a boxer.’
Paul had called out multiple world champion Canelo Alvarez, who has previously won five world titles over as many weight divisions.

But Smith also hit out at Paul’s words insisting it was an insult and that he was no match to take on someone as skilled as Canelo.
‘That’s a joke,’ Smith said.
‘It’s an insult. Here’s the deal – Canelo’s the best in the world. He’ll knock Jake Paul out in one round. He’ll take him out.
‘But more importantly, Jake Paul hasn’t earned the right to be in the ring with somebody as serious, and as lethal, and as accomplished as Canelo.’
Paul has yet to decide on his next fight, but the experienced Julio Cesar Chavez Jr has been reported.
