YouTube personality turned boxer Jake Paul has been on top of the world since defeating Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club on April 17th. Paul had called out the likes of Daniel Cormier and even declared he would knock out Nate Diaz in just three rounds.
After a lot of teases and speculation, it was finally revealed that Jake Paul is set to square off against Tyron Woodley in a boxing match for Showtime Boxing on August 28th.
The upcoming fight between the two will no doubt be a big-money affair as is the case for all of Jake Paul’s fights. While speaking to MMA Fighting, Tyron Woodley’s manager Malki Kawa revealed that Woodley will be walking out with a multi-million dollar payday.
“Yeah, he’s getting paid really well. It’s one of the best deals I’ve ever done. It’s a tremendous deal. He’s getting a large base number, he’s getting a cut of the pay-per-view globally. He should walk away with a multi-million dollar payday. His base guarantee is in the millions already, but add on all the other extra stuff, it’s a really nice payday.”
The upcoming fight between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley is a personal one as Woodley certainly has had enough of Jake Paul’s endless taunts at his expense. We will have to see if Jake Paul will improve his record to a 4-0 in his match against Woodley.
