Herro then went on to speak about Paul's boxing career and even stated that he's a supporter of the YouTuber:
"You know, I'm a fan of him [Jake Paul] and I hope he continues his boxing career and can do his thing."

Jake Paul recently took to Twitter to locate a new opponent for Glen Davis' boxing match.
