Jake Paul mocks Conor McGregor after Irishman quits v Poirier

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will square off in one of the, surprisingly, most anticipated boxing matches of the year this weekend.

YouTube star Paul is 3-0 since turning to boxing, and he will face his toughest test in the ring to date in his career when he faces former UFC welterweight champion Woodley.

The ex-UFC champ is making his pro boxing debut, but he has far and away the best fighting CV of Paul’s previous opponents such as NBA star Nate Robinson and his friend and teammate Ben Askren.

Paul has handily defeated his three pro opponents; YouTuber AnEsonGib, basketball player Nate Robinson and former Bellator champion and Oympic wrestler Ben Askren.

But Woodley is the first fighter he has faced who is known for his stand-up abilities, knocking out top MMA strikers like Robbie Lawlor during his run at the top of MMA.

He was a feared puncher during his three-year run as welterweight champion, and picked up wins over top fighters like Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson and Darren Till.

Paul is the slight favourite heading into the bout, although many fans believe that he will finally suffer his first loss in his initial bout with Showtime Boxing in the US.

Here is everything you need to know…

When is Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley?

The Paul v Woodley bout will take place on Sunday August 29, at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio which is Paul’s home town.

It will likely take place at around 5am UK time on the Monday, with the undercard beginning late on the Sunday night due to Ohio being five hours behind the UK in Eastern time.

Luckily, Monday August 30 is a bank holiday, so fans won’t have work or school after staying up all night for the bout.

    Quotes corner

    Jake Paul: “I told him I’ll pay you double your purse if you beat me. But if you lose, you have to pay your purse to my charity. He lacks confidence.

    “He’s a good striker. He’s known for knocking people out. But I think when I beat Tyron, people have to put respect on my name. But that’s not what I’m here for, to be honest.”

    Tyron Woodley: “I’ve always wanted to box my whole life but never did it.

    “This is my opportunity, this is a kid that’s a power-puncher, he’s got a lot of strength behind him.

    “This is going to be a big platform to showcase what I can do in a boxing ring and he’s a fighter; he can fight.

    “At the end of the day, you can watch him, and the timing, the rhythm, and the footwork are there.
