"If you want to get some legitimacy in the game, fight somebody with a name!" said former boxing superstar Antonio Tarver calling out Jake Paul for a sanctioned fight!
"I want to fight him, because I want to show him there are levels to this,"
Tarver who is now 52 hasn't fought in 5 years and Jake is 23 and just recently knocked out Nate Robinson a former NBA player.
Antonio is the former Unified World Light Heavyweight Champion and says he was impressed with Jake's performance. He thinks a fight with Paul would be entertaining and a lot closer than most people think.
"When you look at Jake Paul's ability, you would be crazy not to believe he's much better than his 2-0 record indicates," Tarver says.
Paul has been calling for fights with guys like Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis, but in Tarver's mind if he's serious about a career in boxing, he needs to fight a BOXER.
"Get in the game and make a move, make a serious move. I can baptize you to the top level."
