Former YouTuber Jake Paul challenged 6ix9ine to a fight as an act of service for all the people the polarizing rapper has allegedly wronged. As Paul was fielding Instagram questions on Tuesday (May 18), he revealed he’d love the opportunity to hop in the ring with 6ix9ine.

“I want to because he deserves to get his ass beat and I want to do it for all the people he’s disrespected,” he said. “But honestly would be too easy and a 30 second fight + he wouldn’t show up in the ring on the day of the fight but yes I would love to knock him out.”

Jake Paul quickly became one of those people when 6ix9ine responded to the challenge on Akamdemiks’ Instagram page with a low blow aimed at Paul’s late security guard Shamir “Shadow” Bolivar, writing, “I think he’s on steroids like his security guard who passed away @jakepaul.”

Shamir Bolivar, who was the CEO of Shadow Group Security, passed away on April 7 at the age of 46. Interestingly enough, Bolivar used to provide security for 6ix9ine as well, according to the SportsKeeda website.

Alphalion Professional Protection Services L.L.C, a security service based out of Maryland, broke the news of Bolivar’s death with a Facebook post, writing at the time, “It’s with a heavy heart and deepest condolences that we at AlphaLion must say farewell to A Friend, A Brother, A Mentor and all around a great human being; Shamir Bolivar @the_shadow_group .

“You have been the key of inspiration to so many who strive to become one of the elite amongst the Shadows and keep watch over those under our care. We pray peace for you, your wife & children and family as you transition into your eternal resting place to forever keep watch from the shadows. Your spirit and vision will forever live on in our hearts and actions!! We love you brother..Rest In Peace. SHADOW FOREVER.”

The Game Challenges Jake & Logan Paul To 2-On-2 Fight: 'No Gloves, No Money'

Jake Paul and his brother Logan are attempting to reinvent themselves as professional boxers. Last week, The Game challenged them to a 2-on-2 fight with his brother Big Fase 100.

“@jakepaul, @LoganPaul…. meet me & my little brother downtown LA in front of staples center and let’s just fight head up fades,” he tweeted on Sunday (May 16). “no gloves, no money needed…. just on some me & my brother will fuck you & your brother up shit !!!!”

Jake Paul responded with, “I don’t assault grandpa’s like [Conor] McGregor.”

As for 6ix9ine, this is nothing new. He routinely takes digs at those who’ve passed or been shot in an effort to get a rise out of people. Most recently, 6ix9ine came out of hibernation to clown Lil Reese following another Chicago shooting.
