Why is the fight taking place?
Brothers Paul, Logan and Jake are both YouTubers turned boxers, which seems like an odd career path, but it is. On the one hand, they are young. Jake Paul is 24 and Logan Paul is 26. So they have young people on their side, and their YouTube money gives them the opportunity to do whatever they want in their free time. And what they apparently want is to beat people up and get beaten back. These fights are not always for the record books, but for the bank books. (Logan Paul’s June fight with Mayweather, 44, was just an exhibition.) While Jake Paul fought three pro fights and won them all, his opponents weren’t professional boxers in their prime. Paul beat YouTuber AnEsonGib, former professional basketball player Nate Robinson and retired MMA fighter Ben Askren. (This.) And all the fights of the Paul brothers make the headlines and the gossip, and add to their fame and their bank balances.
Woodley spoke about Jake Paul during Askren’s fight, which led to the planned fight between Paul and Woodley.
“Easiest fight of my career and biggest bag of my career in one night,” Woodley said of Paul’s game,. “Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash.”
The fighters will weigh 190 pounds, which Paul weighed when he shot Ben Askren in April in a massiveWoodley fought in the UFC at 170 pounds.
Paul is 6 feet 1 inch and Woodley 5 feet 9 inches. Paul is listed with a 76 inch reach to Woodley’s 74 inch reach.
The fighters will wear 10-ounce gloves and fight in a 20×20 ring, ESPN reports. The fight is scheduled in eight rounds.
Both fighters have ariding on the result. If Paul loses he has to get an “I love Tyron Woodley” tattoo somewhere, and if Woodley loses, he has to get an “I love Jake Paul” tattoo. (Both fighters are already tattooed, so one more won’t exactly be a new concept.)
Anyone who gets a tattoo, you just know that there will be a lot of publicity about the tattoo itself, not to mention the photos of the embarrassing end product. (The smart tattoo artists in the Paul-Woodley circle are probably already thinking about how to cover up or disguise the message.)
Second fight? To be determined…
Whatever the outcome, Woodley already believes a fight won’t be enough.
“We’re probably going to fight twice, to be honest”, he said.
Paul is not so sure about this second fight.
“I’m not going to fight Woodley after I beat him,” said Paul, according to the LA Times. “It’s no use, you know. I’m going to finish him off violently, so there won’t be a two-man fight.”

In that same interview, Paul also claimed “98% of the news is false “and falsely claimed that” medical professionals “say the masks do nothing to protect against the virus.
He doesn’t just grab the headlines at his own events. Jake Paul’s brother Logan fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in June, and in May, at a promotional event for the fight, Jake Paul spoke to the fighter and started selling black baseball caps with the words “gotcha hat” printed on it.. Then he
Who is Tyron Woodley?
