Evander Kane challenged Jake Paul to a boxing match

Evander Kane is coming for Jake Paul.

The San Jose Sharks’ forward challenged the YouTube star to a boxing match in August after Paul knocked out former NBA guard Nate Robinson on Saturday night. After the knockout, Paul called out MMA legend Conor McGregor.

Kane tweeted out Saturday night following the fight, “Jeeezzzz maybe I should take on @JakePaul next.”

Kane followed up on Sunday with a specific tweet challenging Paul to a boxing match.

“yo @jakepaul I’d wreck ya. Easy to beat up guys with no experience and much smaller. August 31st 2021 Vegas we can see if you really about that action. #YOURMOVE”, Kane tweeted.

Kane is no stranger to throwing hands. He’s racked up 21 fights over his 10-year NHL career with the Atlanta Thrashers, Buffalo Sabres, Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks. One of his most memorable moments was when he got dropped by Boston Bruins’ defenseman Zdeno Chara and went after the 6’9″ blueliner without any fear or hesitation.

Paul has yet to respond to Kane’s challenge, but the Sharks’ player is hardly the only athlete who has challenged Paul following his knockout of Robinson. Many prominent athletes now want a piece of the younger Paul brother, including Minnesota Timberwolves’ forward Evan Turner.

Evander Kane also wasn’t the only hockey player who tweeted at Jake Paul. Vegas Golden Knights’ goaltender Robin Lehner told Paul he would “f**k” him up” following his knockout at the Staples Center on Saturday.

Robin Lehner is certainly one guy you don’t want to mess with.

Paul is now 2-0 in his boxing career after knocking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in the first round of his first official match. He previously took down Deji back in 2018 as the undercard of the Logan Paul vs KSI fight. Jake Paul currently has over 20 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
