Tim Tebow addresses Jake Paul’s challenge, rumors about move to boxing

Tim Tebow was a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at Florida. Then, he briefly played the position in the NFL for the Broncos. Then, he tried to pursue a baseball career with the Mets. Most recently, he attempted an NFL comeback as a tight end with the Jaguars. If nothing else, the guy deserves credit for chasing his dreams.

Unfortunately for the 34-year-old, being cut by Jacksonville brought an end to his time as a professional athlete. Wait a second — is that Jake Paul’s music?

Paul, 24, improved to 3-0 with three knockouts.

Just as the COVID-19 pandemic forced classes to go online in March, the University decided to remove the club-status from both the Michigan Boxing and Taekwondo teams due to the possible risk of student-athletes incurring head injuries in both sports.
