Online Sensation Jake Paul Faces Former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley in Future Bout - Reports
The social media influencer-turned-professional boxer Jake Paul gets ready for another brawl in the ring as he takes on UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a boxing match, Mike Coppinger of The Athletic confirmed.
Jake Paul Vs. Tyron Woodley
Although MMA fighting shared the upcoming match between Paul and Woodley, the details regarding the venue and the set of rules are still not announced. But the two brawlers have agreed in principle to a deal.
Meanwhile, Paul has also stopped former NBA point guard and slam dunk champion Nate Robinson and his fellow social media influencer AnEsonGib in his expanding career.
According to CBS Sports, the former UFC champion Tyron Woodley is part of the corner of Ben Askren, the latest victim of Jake Paul. Jake Paul stunned the crowd after he dropped the first-round knockout against the former two-promotion MMA champion Askren. The online sensation-turned-pro boxer now holds a 3-0 record, with all wins coming from a knockout.
Moreover, Woodley was a member of the team of Askren that watched the hand-wrapping of the social media influencer in Paul's locker ahead of the fight. During the hand-wrapping moment, there is a bit of beef that broke out between the former UFC Champion, Woodley, and the trainer of Paul, J'Leon Love.
The 39-year-old former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley will be making his professional debut in boxing after a lengthy MMA career. In his mixed martial arts professional career, Woodley owns a 19-7-1 record and finished his career at the UFC on a four-fight losing streak.
But despite having a losing streak in his final career matches, Woodley held the 170-pound championship for four consecutive fights before he was outgunned by Kamaru Usman in 2019.
The Paul vs. Woodley bout is expected to take place on Showtime PPV after Paul signed a deal with the premium cable company a month ago.
Logan Paul Vs. Floyd 'Money' Mayweather
Logan Paul, the older brother of Jake, is also making waves in the fight world. Logan will be taking the boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout, June 6, which will be aired on Sky Sports pay-per-view, TalkSport reported.
But prior to the match with boxing legend, the Paul brothers shared that the retired pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather should be thankful ahead of his bout against Logan. The brothers said that Mayweather should thank them because if not for them, 'Money' will be never set his foot in the spotlight once again.
Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, who holds a record 50-0, found himself in an interesting spot. The fight against Logan Paul fits his business model of putting on huge events with relatively low risk for giant sums of money.
Despite the 26-year-old Logan Paul, who is now 0-1 in his professional career having huge advantages in terms of size, weight, and youth against Mayweather, he still remains the underdog in the special attraction because of Money's experience.
The retired legend and five-division champion, Mayweather will come out of retirement yet again next weekend in an eight-round exhibition fight via Showtime Pay Per View at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
