Social media star Jake Paul finally revealed his “big announcement” this week.
The news comes just a week after his multimillion-dollar fight with Hasim Rahman Jr at Madison Square Garden on August 6 was called off due to Rahman’s difficulty reaching the 200-pound weight limit.
Although a back-and-forth between Paul’s former rival KSI sparked the possibility of the long-awaited clash shortly after his canceled bout. Time is running out to find an opponent, however, Jake Paul hasn’t let that stop him from making the money.

In a recent postJake Paul claims he even turned down a $40 million offer from “one of those crypto betting companies,” so he could continue his investment with BETR.
“I wasn’t into sports betting until I was introduced to micro betting,” said Paul.
“Micro betting is the TikTok-ification of sports betting and I’m excited to bring it to the masses through Betr. We’re here for the long haul and focused on doing things the right way.
“We license on a state-by-state basis, adhering to each state’s regulatory framework while advocating for strong consumer protections and responsible gaming.
