JAKE PAUL says boxing has freed him from years of pent-up media and public anger.
The American admits he built a lot of resentment and hatred towards the world after being targeted at an early age.
But boxing offers him a way to unleash his ‘aggression’ without being told ‘no’.
When asked if boxing has changed his life, Paul said Boxing on the field: “100% correct.
“When you’ve lived under the scrutiny of the public since you were 16, there’s a lot of resentment that builds up in you.
“A lot of hate for the world, when you’re the target of media and commentary, and all that.
“And so I just felt like I had that aggression that I needed to unleash on people’s faces…. I loved it.
“It’s great, and no one can tell me no.

“And that’s the great thing about the sport, that I can do whatever I want, be whoever I want, say whatever I want and that’s liberating.
“You know, we live in a world where you have to be careful about what you do.”
Tyron Woodley will be the next person to whom Paul unleashes his aggression, on Saturday.
Paul beat the former UFC star by breaking up in August.
The 24-year-old has to face Tommy Fury, but Brit went out at the last minute after an infection and broken ribs.
Woodley received short notice of the rematch and could receive a lucrative $500,000 bonus if he knocks out the YouTube star.
Paul’s coach BJ Flores doesn’t expect the fight to go very far.
I said SunSport: “Jake is so much better now than he was on August 29, he’s so much better.
“And you have to remember, he just started boxing, so in a short time he has improved a lot very quickly.
“He’s only been boxing for two years, so four months is 15% of his entire career, so he’s gotten a lot better.
“I know it’s going to be a tough fight, Tyron will be tough in the beginning, but we hope Tyron doesn’t go too far this time.
“It will be very difficult for Tyron to keep up with Jake, to deal with the kind of offense Jake is committing this time.
“This time it will be a different fight and everyone will see that. Jake’s speed will be very high. ”
