When is Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley? 

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will meet each other for the second time in 2021. The pair will square off this weekend at the Amalie Arena in Tampa. Earlier, ‘The Problem Child’ was all set to face pro-boxer Tommy Fury on this date and location.

This fight will be an 8-round affair, wherein the YouTuber will look to vanquish Woodley for the second time. On the flip side, ‘The Chosen One’ will look to avenge his loss, thus giving Jake Paul his very first professional loss.

This contest already has become a talk of the town and many fans and boxing enthusiasts are excited about the same.

Citing this tweet, Paul opened up about it in his post-fight presser. He said, “I’m salivating too because I’m just getting warmed up. Conor McGregor has a lot more to focus on besides me right now,”

“I’m five wins in a row, he’s one in three in the past four years so he needs to get off his vodka or whatever his brand is, sober up and get back in the gym then we can f***ing fight.” he added.
