Jake Paul gifted a reporter with a Rolex watch after a strange encounter at his post-fight press conference on Saturday night.
Paul infamously presented Tyron Woodley with the luxury watch during a face off before their rematch as a thank you for saving their fight card when Tommy Fury retired.
And after brutally stopping the former UFC champion in their hastily arranged rematch over the weekend, he was asked if he would make it a tradition to give away gifts to his opponents.
The reporter who asked the question, Peter Blake, was stunned when Paul responded by offering to give him one of the watches, which can sell for tens of thousands.
“I feel like I have to give them gifts for the trauma I put them through,” Paul told Blake at the press conference when asked what he would give his next opponent.
“Maybe I have other tricks up my sleeve and I don’t know, do you want a Rolex? I can get you one!”
Paul then insisted that manager Nakisa Bidarian get his email address and contact details, even though many believed the gift would never arrive.
But during a live broadcast of his The Sports Web radio show on NSPN, Blake received a call from Paul’s assistant, Marcos Guerrero, who was looking to give the broadcaster a mailing address.
Guerrero expected to speak to Blake on a private number, but the contact details had been given for his talk show, so confirmation of the gift being sent was done live on the radio show.
Paul was in a generous mood after his win over Woodley, and raised over $1 million for his Boxing Bullies charity with an auction at his Florida after-party.
The 24-year-old celebrated his victory in style by hosting an after party at the El Tucan restaurant in Miami on behalf of his anti-boxing charity.
The foundation aims to use boxing to instill “self-confidence, leadership and courage” in young people to fight bullying – was founded by Paul this year.
