Jake Paul Eyes Former NBA Player Glen Davis For Summer Boxing Card

  • His team is reportedly looking for a former heavyweight WWE star to fight against the former NBA player.

Glen “Big Baby” Davis is known for playing professional basketball — but boxing might be next on the list for the former Celtics champion.

Jake Paul wants Davis to fight in a preliminary round for his next fight in August.

Paul and his “Most Valuable Promotions” notably promoted last month’s Katie Taylor-Amanda Serrano fight — a giant box-office success which was the first women’s combat sports main event in the history of Madison Square Garden.

MVP is reportedly looking for a former heavyweight WWE star to fight against the 6-9, 300-pound Davis.

Davis, 36, played nine seasons in the NBA — most recently in 2014-15 with the Los Angeles Clippers. Since then, he’s participated in Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball tournament.

There’s a chance he might not be able to partake, though. Davis violated his bail by watching the Celtics during Game 4 at TD Garden, and the court threatened to send him to a detention center if he commits another violation.
