'Sky is the limit' – Jake Paul's trainer says YouTuber is 'without question' the 'biggest up and coming star in boxing'

JAKE PAUL has been dubbed 'without question' the 'biggest up and coming star in boxing' by his trainer.

Former cruiserweight contender and now retired boxer BJ Flores has guided the YouTube star to five wins, with four knockouts.

And having most recently KO'd ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a rematch, Flores insisted the 'sky is the limit' for unbeaten Paul.

He said: “Jake is a superstar. He has exciting one punch power, speed and has an incredible work ethic.

"He has that X factor. He is can’t miss entertainment. Remember, he is only 5-0. Jake is without question the biggest up and coming star in boxing.

"He has massive potential. The sky is the limit. We have an excellent team in place. There is much more to come in 2022.”

Paul has knocked out every opponent he has faced, having sparked Woodley, 39, in December, four months after initially winning on points.

It added to KO's over YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

But he pulled out with a broken rib and bacterial chest infection, so on less than a fortnights notice, Woodley filled in as replacement.

Fury has insisted his team are in talks to reschedule the bout, meanwhile Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, 35, has also received an offer from Paul.

Chavez Jr is a former WBC middleweight champion, and son of the legendary Mexican Julio Cesar Sr.
