Woodley has also collaborated with the boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather, in order to prepare for his contest against Jake Paul. However, this left the latter fuming, and he couldn’t sustain himself from taking a dig at both ‘The Chosen One’ and Mayweather.

In this string of stories, Paul mocked Woodley, stating that Mayweather trained his old opponent, Nate Robinson, who couldn’t do any damage to him. The Ohio native even rolled out an Instagram question for his fans, wherein he asked, “What will I turn Tyron Woodley into?”

The YouTube boxing star shares a great rivalry with ‘Pretty Boy’. This is because, a few months back, he engaged in a fierce brawl with ‘TBE’ and since then, he’s never spared a chance to mock the undefeated star.

Also, Mayweather took this rivalry to another level altogether when he decided to train Paul’s upcoming opponent, Tyron Woodley. Now, Jake Paul will look forward to cutting down all of Mayweather‘s tactics when takes up the ring space against the ex-UFC elite.

This will be his sternest test to date, and more than anyone else, Paul will be excited to put on a show.

Tyron Woodley partnering with Floyd Mayweather, is Jake Paul really in trouble?

Jake Paul is just 3 fights old in the pro-boxing mix and he only wants to go big from hereon. However, since ‘Money’ is cornering Tyron Woodley for his fight against the 24-year-old, it seems the latter will have sheer problems on fight night.

This is because Mayweather is one of the most skilled boxers of all time. Furthermore, Woodley already has a legitimate striking prowess that just needs to be honed. However, the truth is that Jake Paul will be the more experienced pure boxer in the ring on August 28. Hence, he may not really be in trouble, but he will face a stern test.
