Jake Paul knows an opportunity when he sees one.
On Friday, following the circulation of a viral clip that saw NBA star Draymond Green landing a clean knockout punch of teammate Jordan Poole, Paul tweeted about the incident and not only seemed impressed with Green’s punching power, but went as far as to make a lucrative offer for the former Defensive Player of the Year to box under his Most Valuable Promotions banner.
Watch the viral clip above, courtesy of TMZ.
“Draymond I got $10 million for you to get in the ring on the next Most Valuable Promotions pay per view,” Paul wrote, tagging Green. “Who you want?”
Green has a reputation as both one of the greatest defensive players in NBA history and one of the sport’s most notorious agitators, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the 32-year-old strap on the gloves especially if Paul’s offer is even remotely serious.
As for “The Problem Child,” he is set to fight UFC legend Anderson Silva in a boxing bout that serves as the headline of a Showtime pay-per-view event on Oct. 29 in Glendale, Ariz.
