Jake Paul reveals fight talks with Francis Ngannou as he wants the Ex-heavyweight champion to sign with his Most Valuable Promotion Team
YouTuber-turned-Boxer Jake Paul has confirmed he is currently having talks with Francis Ngannou for the free agent to sign for his Most Valuable Promotion team.
Jake Paul already has many fighters in his company that include featherweight champion Amanda Serrano who is arguably one of the best female boxers around, top teen prospect Ashton Sylve and female boxer Katie Taylor.
The 26 year old recently joined forces with PFL for a pay-per-view MMA offering as well as his boxing promotion. If they get to work together Jake Paul is not only planning to represent Ngannou as he goes into boxing but also do something MMA-related in the future and why not not a possible promotional fight between the two

“We have talked,” Paul told TMZ Sports. “The Most Valuable Promotions team, we talked to Francis. We think we can do a great job for him. We share the same vision on a lot of things. Hopefully Francis sees that as well, but regardless, we’re always going to be there to support him.
“On the MMA side of things, we’re working on something too. Francis is a great guy, and I think there’s a lot of opportunities for us together.”
Paul is a major advocate for fighter pay, as well as pushing for a union for athletes in boxing and MMA. Ngannou has similar goals, and made demands that would have impacted fighters permanently had he been able to reach a deal with the UFC to stay in the promotion.
