Internet star turned professional boxer Jake Paul takes on his latest challenge when he faces ex UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in the coming days.
The YouTube sensation has enjoyed a promising start to his pro career, with a first round knock out of MMA fighter Ben Askren in April meaning he has chalked up a record of 3-0 since his move into the sport.
The 24-year-old has shown the watching public exactly what he is made of despite much derision following confirmation he would be swapping likes for fights.
And despite his fighting career still being in its relevant infancy, Paul has shown he can compete with the best of them when it comes to the customary trash talk, after a war of words with Woodley ultimately lead to this upcoming showdown between the pair.
However, looking to bring Paul down a notch will be 39-year-old Woodley.
The St. Louis native – also known as The Chosen One – began his professional MMA career back in 2009, and currently holds a UFC record of 19-7-1. It was actually Woodley who originally called out Paul following a backstage confrontation where Paul mocked him due to his inexperience in boxing.
The clash with YouTuber Paul will be his first professional boxing bout.
