The American TV personality also questioned Paul’s decision to call out Canelo Alvarez
Stephen A. Smith has called out Jake Paul in a viral video, claiming “he can’t get away with lying” following his knockout win against Tyron Woodley last weekend.
Paul defeated the former UFC star with a brutal sixth-round knockout victory to extend his unbeaten professional record to 5-0 after Woodley stepped in at the last minute to replace original opponent Tommy Fury, who pulled out of the fight due to illness and injury.

But popular American TV personality Smith hasn’t been convinced by the former YouTuber’s displays in the ring and believes he should be facing more challenging opponents in a video posted to his social media.
In a clip taken from ESPN show, First Take he said: “Jake Paul can’t get away with lying anymore.
“He has been training with boxers and professional boxing trainers for more than four years, from my understanding.
“You knocked out a basketball player, you knocked out a guy in Ben Askren who was a UFC fighter. He was a wrestler.
“Tyron Woodley had the power to knock you out; sure, and he’s knocked people out before. But he’s a wrestler.
