Tim Tebow has made a witty response to Jake Paul’s boxing challenge.
Following his talked-about split decision victory over ex-UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, Jake Paul has seemingly set his sights on another former professional athlete in Tim Tebow.
The undefeated YouTuber-turned-professional boxer has put Tebow on the spot Wednesday on social media as he urged the former Denver Broncos tight end to try boxing as well.
“Aye [Tebow] I think it’s time for you to get into boxing,” Paul tweeted.
To everybody’s surprise, it didn’t take long for the 34-year-old to give his take on the subject.
During a recent “SportsCenter” talk with David Lloyd, Tebow pointed out that though he did “pretend to be Rocky” in the past, he doesn’t see himself doing boxing at least at the moment.
“I did pretend to be Rocky in ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ and I won that one, so I don’t know,” Tebow joked. “I don’t think there’s much of a shot for that.”
“I don’t think that’s where I’m probably going to head next,” he concluded.
As it stands between the pair, Paul has yet to announce his concrete future plans, having retired and then unretire from pro boxing shortly after the Woodley fight.
Tebow, on the other hand, is still an NFL free agent but has already landed a job on ESPN, covering college American football. Moreover, he is all set to clash with veteran sports analyst Stephen A. Smith on the network’s famed debate show “First Take” every Friday, per New York Post.
