"He's beat up three guys that really don't have any skill set in the ring," Gill says.
KENDALL GILL: Jake Paul, the way that he acts, he's thinking he's the heavyweight champion of the world. And he's beat up 3 guys that really don't have any skill set in the ring. When he knocked out Nate Robinson, I actually called him out and wanted to fight him April 17th, on this past Saturday.
But he and his team decided to ignore the call out. And I talked to his trainer. And I DMed his trainer all of my posts about boxing and things like that. And they gave me an excuse of well, you don't have enough following. I was like, OK, wait. So I called Shaq. I said, Shaq, give us a deal. I want you to go on and challenge Jake Paul for me. That's what Shaq did. OK. And they saw it.
MATT SPEIGEL: How many followers does Shaq have, Kendall? That's a good one.
KENDALL GILL: Shaq has 19 million followers. 4 or 5 million more than Jake Paul.
MATT SPEIGEL: I wonder if that's enough of a following for Jake Paul's manager.
KENDALL GILL: Yeah, I wonder. And also Shaq is the biggest pitchman in America. You can-- and you go to see a commercial of Shaq, right?
MATT SPEIGEL: Yeah.
KENDALL GILL: So when Shaq talks everybody listens. But they decided to ignore it. The reason why they ignored it is this, they want to keep this circus going for as long as they can, fight guys that are smaller than him, fight guys that are less experienced than him, and get the pay-per view numbers that they got. And like I said, they've done a wonderful job of pulling the wool over people's eyes and getting rich at the same time.
DANNY PARKINS: What would happen if you stepped into a ring with Jake Paul?
KENDALL GILL: Jake would be over. Look, first of all, what Jake Paul-- this is his formula. He wants to fight guys that are smaller than him. He's naturally about 210 pounds. They say he's 6' 1", but he's really not. You look at him at all of his press conferences, he's timberland's which put two inches on your height. So he's really about maybe 5' 11". So they want to fight guys like that. They don't want to fight guys with experience in the ring. If I was Jake Paul, I wouldn't want to face somebody like me with experience either.
