Jake Paul will step into the ring on Aug. 29 against UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
Paul is a 24-year-old YouTube sensation who looks to build on his unbeaten record. His fourth professional boxing match will be against a 39-year-old MMA veteran, which may prove to be his toughest competition yet.
It has been an eventful year for Jake and his brother. Back in June, Logan Paul fought boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Will Woodley be the one to end Paul’s unbeaten run as a boxer, or will he be the fourth one to be knocked out by Paul in the last big fight of the summer for combat sports?

What happened during the Paul-Woodley press conference?
Paul and Woodley faced off Thursday evening in a press conference that ended in a battle of words between camps. The two have exchanged words leading up to the conference but it became personal at the post presser. The altercation apparently stemmed from someone from Paul’s team getting into an argument with Woodley’s mother Deborah (affectionately known as “Mama Woodley”).
