Jake Paul is partnering with USA Boxing as the team gears up for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

On Tuesday, the 26-year-old shared the news on X, stating how he will be training with the Olympians this winter and travelling with them to France come July. 

‘I’m honored to partner with USA Boxing as the 2024 Paris Olympics approach,’ Paul Wrote. ‘I’ll be training with the Olympic squad in Colorado Springs this winter and accompanying them to Paris this July to amplify our country’s best amateur boxers.’

‘My commitment to boxing is much more than my in ring accomplishments,’ he continued. ‘I am determined to make my impact outside the ring bigger than anything I do within it. I believe the United States has the best boxers. Let’s put it to the test.’

USA Boxing Executive Director Mike McAtee also expressed his excitement for the partnership.

‘It has always been my goal to shine a spotlight not just on boxing as a sport, but on the people who work so hard to be the best within it,’ McAtee said in a press release. ‘The mindset of pursuing greatness is one I both see and personally share with Mo McCane, Joshua Edwards, and the rest of Team USA’s boxing talent. 

‘The Olympics are the greatest stage in the world, and I’m honored to help bring awareness to USA Boxing and mentor these young, inspiring athletes as they fight for gold. Anyone who works hard enough to receive the honor to represent Team USA at the Olympics deserves a platform, so I’m looking forward to getting down to business in Colorado Springs with Coach Walsh and the rest of Team USA.’

Paul announced the partnership four days after his first round finish over Andre August, his second bout against a professional boxer.
