If you’ve been following the social space then you know all about Jake Paul. For those who don’t, Jake is a popular social media personality who’s known for his videos on YouTube. More recently, he’s taken to boxing as his new muse. The star has enjoyed a smooth start to his new career, dishing out two defeats to his opponents on the way to his budding boxing career.
Jake Paul, younger brother to Logan Paul who is also a boxer, is looking to make a name for himself in the boxing world. The YouTuber who was before then a founding member of the Team 10 crew has announced that he’s selling the Team 10 mansion and leaving California all together. For the curious minds who’d like to know why the star wants to sell his house and move away from his career, you’re in the right place.
Why Is Jake Paul Is Moving Out Of California?
In a YouTube video on Wednesday, the star announced his departure from California and the imminent sale of his Team 10 mansion. In the video, Jake is found saying “This was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life”, referring to his departure from the mansion.
Jake revealed he had to sell the mansion to move out of Los Angeles. The star also reiterated the support he’s received from his team, friends, and family on the issue. He said, “but me, my team, my friends, my parents, everyone thinks it’s the right decision.”
Jake has stated that he’s leaving his home in LA to pursue a career where he’s a “legitimate pro fighter”. He revealed that there are so many distractions in Los Angeles that could potentially dampen his ability to go far in his new-found career. “Being in Los Angeles, there’s so many distractions, there’s so much going on, and it doesn’t really allow me to focus on training,” he said.
The star who has amassed over 20 million subscribers on YouTube recently made the shift from online content creation to boxing. In his latest victory, he knocked out NBA star Nate Robinson in a cruise weight match on November 28 last year. It was recently announced that he’ll be facing Ben Askren in a match although the particular date is yet to be revealed.
Where Is He Going To?
Jake has made it known that he has so many goals in life, and unsurprisingly, becoming a big prizefighter was one among them. “I have set many goals for myself throughout my life,” he said, adding that the next one was “to become the biggest prizefighter in the world.” The star however stated that he found it difficult to sell the house even though he thinks it’s the right thing to do.
The star has not revealed where he’s moving to but prefers to take it one day at a time. The star may decide to pitch his tent in Las Vegas or return to Ohio, where he and his older brother Logan are from. Either way, we’ll find out sooner than later.
