He tweeted: “Big news. Tickets on sale next week. #PaulPutin brought to you by @TimJDillon promotions.”

The post has garnered a whopping 25.5k likes and hundreds have taken to the comments and shared their thoughts.
One commented: “He needs to put Putin in his place.”
Another added: “First time liking a Jake Paul tweet. Cheers for the lil smirk that gave me Jake.”
“I’d pay serious money to see that. Probably the only fight on earth where is actually cheer for @jakepaul!” a third said.
However, others didn’t see the funny side of Paul’s post and said it was ‘insensitive’ to make the crisis into a meme.

Slamming the social media personality, one wrote: “Jake, I know that you’re a successful boxer but posting a fake boxing poster at this moment in time is not appropriate. Millions of people are fighting for their lives in a war.”
In agreement, a second remarked: “Yeah, this ain’t it. I get ‘memeing’ on the situation but clout chasing and self-promo on top of lost lives ain’t it. But then it’s a Paul brother so no surprises there.”
Previously, Paul has taken to Twitter and said his ‘thoughts’ are with those involved in the crisis.
The 25-year-old penned: “My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and Russia who are both going to suffer greatly from all of this mayhem.”
