Jake Paul Vs. Daniel Cormier Boxing Betting Odds
The best USA sportsbooks would favor Daniel Cormier in a hypothetical boxing match with Jake Paul. Jake Paul would be a heavy underdog at the best online sportsbooks were he to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in a boxing match.
BetOnline Betting Odds:
Paul is undefeated at 3-0 in his pro boxing career. All three wins via KO. He has been the betting fave at the best USA sportsbooks in all of those matches.
He would not be against the retired Cormier. Following Cormier’s confrontation with Paul (what they call in wrestling a ‘worked shoot’) at UFC 261 last weekend, the YouTuber/novelty boxer is a +350 dog.
Betting Daniel Cormier
Daniel Cormier opened as a 500 odds on fave. This is not surprising because Paul would finally be fighting someone his own size as well as someone who has actual striking skills. In his last two fights,
Paul faced former NBA slam dunk champ Nate Robinson. Robinson was 5-9.
Paul then fought retired Mixed Martial Artist Ben Askren. Askren fought as a welterweight and is known for his grappling skills.
Cormier is different because he is the bigger of the two, and has legitimate striking skills.
Cormier had previously dismissed Jake Paul, saying he would kill him if they threw down. The idea of the two tangling up was obviously by Paul. He is looking for his next opponent after a sensational KO of Ben Askren earlier this month.
DC got himself mixed up in all this nonsense when he commented on boxer J’Leon Love. Love challenged former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley to a match. Woodley had in turn called out Paul after the Askren bout.
Betting Jake Paul
Jake Paul immediately went to work fat-shaming DC. He threatened to beat Cormier’s “fat A$$ just like Stipe did”. Paul was not in fact referring to REM’s lead singer Michael Stipe, but to UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. Miocic KOd Cormier at UFC 241 and dominated him again at UFC 252.
When DC heard that Paul was present at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville last Saturday night, he left the announcers’ booth. He then threatened to sock Paul in the face. He did not sock him though, because like Sam Jackson said in The Great White Hype, why give away what we can sell?
As if there weren’t too many douchebags already involved in this tomfoolery, UFC President Dana White of course had to butt in. Uncle Dana called Paul and Triller a “freakshow”. He also disputed Paul’s claims that his match against Askren did 1.5M PPV buys.
But if that turns out to be true, the YouTube entity has produced the 10th best-selling boxing PPV event of all-time. And fighting a retired MMA fighter with no striking skills to boot.
Whether you hate Paul or merely dislike him, and regardless of the fact that his celebrity boxing matches make a mockery of a sport that hasn’t done itself any favors, the fact remains but he knows how to sell himself.
1.5 PPV buys or not aside, there’s no denying that Jake Paul’s latest boxing freakshow was successful.
Imagine the event being searched on google seven more times than Wrestlemania 37. That can’t be right, can it?
It has yet to be seen if Daniel Cormier bites the Jake Paul bait. But for someone who stated that Paul has no business being in the same ring with him, DC looked rather emotionally invested last Saturday when he confronted Paul. Thereof course the distinct possibility that both men have already come to an agreement, and their little tete-a-tete was nothing but hype.
