In a recent edition of the BS Podcast, popular social media influencer and boxer Jake Paul made an offer to Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg for a USD100 million fight that would take place in the Middle East. Paul further stated that the proceeds would go to a charity and said he could guarantee the astronomical sum would be raised if the billionaires agreed to fight.
The potential Zuckerberg-Musk bout has been a topic of discussion for a while now. The beef, which originated on Twitter, seems to be closer and closer to reality as established figures like the UFC President Dana White and, now, Jake Paul have thrown their hat into the octagon to try and make this fight happen. Both White and Paul agreed that this fight is potentially the biggest fight in the history of the sport and would draw eyes from across the world and across demographics given the reach and power of either businessman.
The Musk-Zuckerberg feud dates back to at least 2016 when a Facebook satellite was destroyed in a SpaceX accident. More recently the pair have butt heads on Twitter over Musk’s handling of the social media platform and Meta’s new Twitter rival Threads. Musk threatened to sue Meta and challenged Zuckerberg to a fight. Both billionaires seem to be taking it seriously, as Dana White reiterated recently, and it seems like a fight might well be on the horizon.
Elon will handily win bout: Jake P aul
Jake Paul has his money on Elon Musk to win a potential fight against Zuckerberg. The YouTuber-turned-boxer said that it is because Musk is taller and weighs more. In fighting, reach and height are significant factors which cannot be overlooked. Having a bigger reach than your opponent allows you to space their attacks and hit them so they can’t hit back. Paul believes Musk’s height and weight advantage is overwhelming for the relatively shorter Zuckerberg.
The 26-year-old also called out Dana White during the show, highlighting White’s hypocrisy about previously stating he doesn’t do ‘gimmick’ fights in reference to influencer boxing and then trying to get the UFC involved in a potential Zuckerberg-Musk fight.
