Floyd Mayweather Helping Tyron Woodley Out of Greed and Hidden Agenda, Says Jake Paul

Published 08/15/2021, 11:41 AM EDT


Jake Paul is now all set to face his toughest challenge yet – Tyron Woodley. This bout between the YouTuber-turned-pugilist and the former five-time UFC welterweight champion could be a make-or-break for both. A win over Woodley would elevate his status in the boxing community; however, a loss could be equally detrimental to all the progress Paul has made so far.

The 24-year-old believes that boxing’s undefeated and undisputed ‘Pretty Boy’ is trying to sabotage his achievements in the sport by helping and training Tyron Woodley. Paul thinks that Floyd Mayweather is supporting ‘The Chosen One’ because “he doesn’t want anyone to be more popular or more acclaimed than him“.

Floyd Mayweather agreed to help Woodley soon after Jake Paul‘s infamous ‘Gotcha Hat’ incident. During that encounter, Mayweather and his bodyguards even threw hands at the Ohio native. Since then, the two have been on uneven terms. While Logan Paul made peace with him after their 8-round exhibition fight in June, ‘Money’ is not one to let things slide easily.

For sure, you know, I think he sees what I’m doing in the sport and he wants to put an end to it. You know, he’s a very greedy guy. You know he doesn’t want anyone to be more popular or more acclaimed than him and so I think he wants to see me lose. He wants to see this whole train get stopped,” said Jake Paul in a TMZ interview.

Who’s next on Jake Paul’s ‘hit list’?

As Jake Paul heads into the ring to face Tyron Woodley, it seems he already has his next fight in the works. A heated rivalry that has been brewing over social media for quite some time might actually come to fruition now.

 

It all started with heavyweight champion Tyson Fury calling out Jake Paul to fight his 22-year-old brother. As a pro-boxer, Tommy Fury is currently on a six-fight win streak, remains undefeated, and fights at the light-heavyweight division.

Jake Paul initially shrugged him off by saying that he would consider him once he faces an undefeated pro-boxer and does a pay-per-view event.

Ever since then, Tommy Fury has secured a win over Jordan Grant, who had 2 wins and no losses before the fight. To also tick Jake Paul’s second ask off the checklist, Tommy Fury is now all set to fight Jake Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor on the undercard of the Paul-Woodley fight. If both secure wins against their opponents on August 30, Fury-Paul just might be the next big event.

Tommy Fury dares Jake Paul to try ‘Gotcha Hat’ on him

In a recent interview, the Englishman shared he expects Jake Paul to antagonize him at the event. He plans on purposely wearing a hat during a possible encounter between the two. Tommy Fury has warned and dared Jake Paul to replicate the infamous ‘Gotcha Hat’ stunt on him.

I am wearing a cap, I’m gonna do it on purpose and hope he tries to take it. So I can hit him with a left hook like Floyd Mayweather done and send him crying again. He took a little bit of a shot around the eye and went off with an injury crying with a red face. 

I know exactly what he’s about and his cronies. So this here is a thrill-seeking ride for me. I’m going to get over there, I’m going to enjoy it. I’m going to take it with both hands because I know what I’m messing with at the end of the day,said Tommy Fury.
