Yesterday’s pre-fight press conference for Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley took off to a smooth start, only to end with a scuffle that could have gone terribly wrong. Jake Paul, however, sees the entire debacle as an unfortunate event and is choosing to keep his focus on the task at hand.

Both fighters took the day to put on their open workouts for the media and fans down in Cleveland. After the press conference events, Tyron and Paul had a face-off, which went well enough. However, things began to escalate when a member of Paul’s team got into a heated argument with Tyron Woodley’s mother, fondly known as ‘mamma Woodley’.  

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Paul gave his take on the scuffle that went down, making the following statement.

“I didn’t like it. You know it’s just unprofessionalism on both sides. Everyone was in the wrong, family members talking to people on my team. Of course everything escalates, its fight week, lots of emotions and you know if it was anything else other than that I’d be like, okay this is cool, this is the fight business. But on women’s equality day, with his mom and my team members and my mom’s sitting next to her. My mom and her were completely cordial. I don’t know how things got out of control, it’s just a bad look, and I don’t like it. But it is what it is and I’m moving on. I’m not too worried about it.”  


Luckily, security present at the venue was able to handle the situation before it got out of hand. Nevertheless, Woodley was understandably furious, promising he’d get his revenge in the ring.

A former MMA champion with knockout power, Woodley might be smaller than Paul but is certainly the more experienced and technical striker. If Paul can manage a win over Woodley, there will be little doubt about his skills as a fighter.

Paul has already mentioned wanting to fight elite fighters such as Canelo Alvarez, Jorge Masvidal, and even Conor McGregor.
