Jake Paul's trainer BJ Flores shot and rushed to hospital after he is robbed at gunpoint | The Sun

JAKE PAUL'S trainer was shot and rushed to hospital in a "crazy" armed mugging.

BJ Flores was on holiday in Colombia when the shocking incident took place.

The bloodied American trainer, 44, took to Instagram today to reveal the shocking ordeal.

The videos showed the x-ray of the bullet in his leg and the marks where the gun was pressed against his temple just before he went into surgery.

Flores wrote: "Tonight I was attacked by two armed motorcycle drivers as a passenger at a RED LIGHT.

“They pulled up, stuck a gun to my head, tried to steal my wallet and my watch.

“They shot me one time in the leg and I defended myself the best way I could.

“I am still in the emergency room waiting to have the bullet removed at 5:18am.

“Thank you for the well wishes. I will learn from this.

“Be safe out there please. Life is precious.”

Earlier on, he had posted numerous videos after touching down in Medellin to enjoy some down time and explore real estate properties.

Flores is a former boxer himself, famously fighting Brit Tony Bellew in 2016 but was knocked out in round three.

He had 39 pro fights in the ring, winning 34 and losing four.

Flores has been working with YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul since 2021 and was in his corner for February's defeat to former Love Islander Tommy Fury.

The Californian was hospitalised in February last year with a "penis injury" after being bitten by a dog.

He shared a video on Instagram of him in a hospital bed, with a diagnosis sheet reading "dog bite, initial encounter" as well as "penile laceration, initial encounter".

He then posted a message that read: "Talk about terrified, I am fine thank God!

"So whenever you think you're having a bad day… Just remember that story about the guy that was in the ER until 4am with a 'penile laceration' from a dog bite."

He was discharged after recovering from the surgery.
