Jake Paul called out by 'world's scariest man' Martyn Ford for fight despite NINE STONE weight difference

JAKE PAUL has been offered a fight by Martyn Ford – despite their massive weight difference.

Movie star Ford – dubbed the 'world's scariest man' – is set to make his boxing debut on April 30 against the 'Iranian Hulk'.


But already the 6ft 8in bodybuilder is being lined up with massive fights in the future.

One of those being YouTuber-turned prizefighting star Paul, who is unbeaten at 5-0 in the ring.

Ford told the Daily Star: "I think Jake Paul is actually so clever in what he's done.

"For me I've no animosity towards him. Would I fight him? 100 per cent I would. It would be a great fight, great experience and great exposure.

"I think I'd be quite confident. He's decent, I don't think he's terrible, I don't think he's a bad fighter.

"You're talking about a guy who takes it seriously, a guy who's put in the hard work and the graft in.

"He's never going to be a pro, I don't agree with necessarily putting him in that category.

"But would I fight him? 100 per cent. And I'd back myself."
