Also, nobody ever expected Woodley to turn into a professional boxer and take on someone like Jake Paul. However, he’s grabbed this opportunity with open arms and is ready to land his dynamite-like right hands onto ‘The Problem Child’. Recently, ‘The Chosen One’ interacted with Fight Hub TV and compared Jake Paul to his brother, Logan Paul.

He said, “You know, to be honest, Jake Paul was kind of a shadow of Logan Paul, you know his bigger brother. I knew Logan, we talked a lot, we chatted about MMA and I always gave him props about them being athletes and I’ve always known they’re athletes.”

Though Woodley holds vast experience in the fight world, he still isn’t underestimating his adversary, Paul, who is a three-fight boxing veteran.

The former UFC elite has already kicked off his training camp for this fight. On August 29, he will look to snap a combat sport losing streak that began at UFC 235.

Moving further, this boxing event will be one of the biggest and most entertaining events of 2021. Until now, both Paul and Woodley have mocked each other verbally. But once they touch gloves with each other, everything will boil down to the hard work they’ve put in for this fight.
