Netflix is all set to release its highly anticipated documentary, “Untold: Jake Paul the Problem Child,” on 1st August, offering an unfiltered look into the life of pro boxing sensation and internet sensation Jake Paul. 


The show promises an in-depth exploration of how a young prankster from Ohio catapulted himself into the realm of professional boxing while simultaneously becoming one of the most polarizing figures in sports.


The documentary delves into the dichotomy surrounding the 26-year-old Jake Paul, is he a boxing world saviour, or is his success merely a result of his marketing prowess rather than genuine fighting skills? The question divides opinions across the sports community.


Born on January 17, 1997, in Cleveland, Ohio, Jake Paul gained initial fame on the now-defunct platform Vine, where he showcased his comedic talents through prank videos. As the platform shut down, Paul transitioned to YouTube, where he, along with his brother Logan Paul, rose to fame with their vlogs, challenges, and comedic content. Their controversial and often brash approach to content creation attracted both devoted fans and harsh critics.


In recent years, Jake Paul has reinvented himself as a professional boxer, taking on high-profile opponents in the ring. His boxing journey began in January 2020, with a knockout victory against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. Subsequently, he scored a brutal knockout against former NBA player Nate Robinson and defeated mixed martial artist Ben Askren.


While some dismiss his boxing endeavours as mere spectacles designed to capitalize on his internet fame, others commend Jake Paul’s dedication and training commitment, recognizing him as a genuine competitor in the sport. His bouts have garnered significant attention, with millions of viewers tuning in to watch him fight.


“Untold: Jake Paul the Problem Child” promises an exclusive look behind the scenes, with gripping interviews featuring Jake Paul and his brother Logan Paul, along with their parents, close friends, fans, and fellow boxers. The documentary also captures reactions from the sceptical old guard in the boxing world who have questioned his credibility as a legitimate fighter.


One of his most vocal critics, UFC president Dana White, has been openly dismissive of Paul’s boxing pursuits. On the other hand, former professional boxer Mike Tyson has shown support for Jake Paul’s endeavours in the squared circle, adding to the divided opinions surrounding the controversial figure.


The documentary culminates with a nail-biting, high-stakes match that could define Jake Paul’s legacy in the sport. As he steps into the ring against a formidable opponent, the world watches to see if the “Problem Child” can silence his doubters and continue his ascent in the boxing world.
