Jake, Logan, no one will ever beat them. They do not lose at anything in life.

Somone will beat Jake. An out of shape barley motivated Ben Askren was not much of a challenge. That whole card was a sleazy money grab.

Well to be a bit more rational than my original post, I would say it’s more that no one will ever beat him because his “fights” are all carefully curated money grabs against has beens who don’t mind a shot at their reputation in exchange for a pay day. And the marks out there will pay the money. It’s more about celebrity ego boosting.

3 fights in 15 months isn't much of a career to make any future predictions. If he keeps fighting guys with no pro experience perhaps he can remain undefeated for years.

Paul is a boxer, and he calls himself "an elite fighter", but he hasn't ever fought a pro boxer, let alone an active, ranked pro boxer who competes at his weight. If he fought even an active #10 ranked light heavyweight pro boxer, he stands no chance.

Askren is considerably smaller than Paul, and yes, he *was* a pro fighter, but Askren was an MMA fighter, and he was a welterweight (170lb) who was recognized to be weak on striking even for an MMA fighter, before he retired. Paul's opponents have been nothing to justify his self-hype-machine.
