‘His heartrate is sky high’: Jake Paul says Tyron Woodley underestimates him

YouTube star Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley will fight one another in a boxing match tonight, as the sport’s controversial crossover era continues.

Paul, 24, gained fame and notoriety as a vlogger but has delved into the world of boxing with one amateur fight and three professional bouts. So far, the American has won all of those contests via knockout, with his opponents in his professional fights being fellow Youtuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson and former mixed martial artist Ben Askren.

Now, Askren’s close friend Woodley will step into the ring with the divisive Paul. American Woodley, 39, was recently released by the UFC due to a four-fight losing streak, but what preceded that run was a dominant spell as welterweight champion. This bout with Paul marks the former NCAA Division I wrestler’s first time venturing into boxing.

On the undercard at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio, Tommy Fury will compete against Anthony Taylor – a sparring partner of Paul. Fury, brother of world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson, is a former Love Island contestant and has been involved in a war of words with Paul on social media. The Briton could be next up for Paul, if the pair win their respective contests this evening. Meanwhile, British heavyweight Daniel Dubois is in action against Joe Cusumano.

Jake Paul: We’ll run it back with Tyron if he gets the tattoo.

“I wasn’t very happy with my performance, I felt wary. I don’t know what it was. I got the job done against a five-time UFC champion. It is what it is, I’m known as the KO guy, I didn’t live up to that. We’ll run it back, with Tyron if he gets the tattoo.

“I’ve been boxing for three years and four days. I went in there, I didn’t fight at my best. That’s my first time going more than two rounds. I’m not too happy with my performance, it’s only my fourth fight, nobody has done this on this stage. It’s unprecedented. He caught me with a good shot, one shot out of eight rounds, cool. I took the shot, this isn’t soccer, it’s fighting, I’ve got a chin.

“We’ll see what happens, I’ve been doing this for 18 months straight, I’m tired. My legs were tired. It is what it is, I’ll go back to the drawing board and figure it out. I was built for this but people seem to forget it is my fourth fight. I’m doing things nobody has done before.”

Then Woodley took the microphone and immediately demanded a rematch. He seemed genuinely angry that Paul was awarded the win.
