Jake Paul says he’s showing early signs of CTE after taking up boxing

Paul says he is showing early signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) after starting his boxing career.

The Youtuber-turned-boxer spoke during a media conference in front of his fight against former UFC star Ben Askron, in which he said he had brain scans, but that he loves the sport and has no regrets about becoming a boxer.

So if people question my commitment because of this, it’s like I show every day.

“I put my psychic health at stake, my brain is at stake. But I love this sport and I wouldn’t perform for anything else.”

“I am a fighter and people will see if it is after Saturday night, or if it is a year from now that it will be seen that I am a fighter.

He added: “There’s a chance he’s really good. If he’s really good, he’ll really beat me. But I don’t think he’s really good, that’s what he is.”

CTE is a brain degeneration that is presumed to be caused by repeated trauma.

According to the NHS, typical symptoms of the disease include a loss of short-term memory, mood swings and comparisons.

Since Paul’s statements, industry experts have suggested that next time it might be a little more difficult if he has a license to fight.
