Youtuber turned boxer Jake Paul stunned the world when he defeated former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, twice in the same year. Paul has been working hard to earn a name for himself in the world of boxing. And he recently moved closer to his goal by defeating another UFC legend, Anderson Silva. However, recently Woodley spilled some beans about fighting Paul for the third time. But, not inside the squared circle.

Tyron Woodley has fallen short in front of Jake Paul twice in the past. Maybe it was because Woodley is an MMA fighter, and a boxing ring is a new setting for him. Given this, Woodley wants to take on Paul again, but in an MMA fight. The former UFC champ stated, “What we really should do is fight in MMA. Because a lot of people want to see what happens when we fight in MMA.”

As the host of the ‘geto boys reloaded’ podcast mentioned, Paul is very smart about giving himself a winning chance. Therefore, it seems absurd to challenge Paul to an MMA match. The YouTuber wants to be one of the finest boxers in the world, so that is what he will likely focus on more than preparing for an MMA bout.

“The Problem Child” quickly rose to become the face of influencer boxing. He has undoubtedly shown himself to be fortunate in the sport of boxing and has attracted new followers. However, the man is on a quest for glory. He posted a video of himself face-to-face with controversial online personality and former kickboxer Andrew Tate shortly after his spectacular victory against Anderson Silva. It caused a stir online and made it very evident that the two will be seen brawling with one another inside the boxing ring.

Furthermore, it has been twice that a clash between Paul and Tommy Fury has been canceled. But recently Paul shared in a Tweet that he is ready to face Fury in the UK in 2023. He even mentioned that he will sign the contract just in a week if all things go well.
