Boxing fans love to hate Jake Paul, but one thing is for certain: he appears to be a man of his word.
Paul used his large following on YouTube to become one of the most talked-about boxers in the sport. He’s coming off of a year that featured back-to-back wins over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley and a win over former Bellator champion Ben Askren.
One element of Paul’s career as a social media influencer and professional boxer is his generosity, which he showcased recently on his Twitter page. Despite being recently named to the Forbes highest-paid athletes list, he is willing to help his fanbase financially.
In a recent tweet, Paul announced a giveaway to a few lucky fans.
“SPORTS BETTING MAKES SPORTS SO MUCH MORE FUN,” Paul tweeted. “I’m bored so imma send a couple people $1000 dollars to sports bet who retweet this and follow me. Reply with your payment method GO!”
A couple of days after the giveaway, one Paul fan, Eric Powell, posted to Twitter to prove that the giveaway was legitimate and not a scam.
“Lots of bots and fake shit on Twitter, 1 true thing on here is [Jake Paul] saying he’s gonna send out money,” Powell tweeted. “Dude keeps his word that’s for sure. Thank you Jake. Very much appreciated man. Still in shock.”
