Jake Paul already back training after gruelling sparring session with WBO cruiserweight world champion Lawrence Okolie | The Sun
JAKE PAUL is already back in training just a week after beating Anderson Silva.
That’s after being put through his paces in a gruelling sparring session with cruiserweight king Lawrence Okolie.
