“The main reason for this is I’m stepping into a new chapter in my life where I am a legitimate pro fighter,” Paul shared. “And being in Los Angeles there’s so many distractions. There is so much going on.” (RELATED: Jake Paul Challenges Conor McGregor To A Boxing Match, Offers Him $50 Million)

He said that if he stays in L.A. he won’t be able to “focus on training,” while noting that he spent “4 months” in Las Vegas ahead of his fight with Nate Robinson.

Jake talked about “all the madness” and “partying” where he lives and how if he wants to be one of the “biggest prizefighters in the world” he has to make the move.

At one point, the social media star said he was ready to live where he can do his YouTube shoots and film content without angering his neighbors. Paul said he planned to live somewhere where he can do whatever he wants.

Sources shared with the outlet that social media star is currently in Miami and is eyeing a place to live there.
