And former UFC welterweight champion Woodley, who has lost his last four fights inside the octagon, is confident of inflicting a first defeat on Paul.

He has vowed to knock out his American compatriot inside three rounds, despite the former Disney actor winning all three of his bouts inside the distance.

Woodley has even been training with boxing legend Mayweather having accepted the 44-year-old’s offer of helping him out.

Ahead of Mayweather’s exhibition bout against Jake’s brother Logan, he remarked: “Give me Tyron Woodley. I make sure I get in camp and train him for this fight.

“I want Tyron Woodley to come to Las Vegas and work with us.”

To which Woodley responded by stating: “They just texted me, let’s do it. I just talked to him today so for sure, why would I not train with the greatest boxer of all time?

“He’s already my dog and we’ve been talking about training anyway, so for sure. I’m definitely going to take him up on that.”

And the Chosen One has taken to social media to share pictures of him receiving a boxing masterclass lesson from the 15-time world champion.

Captioning the post, he said: “Bank Robbery in progress. Y’all f***** up! It’s stuck now!!”

His ‘bank robbery’ jibe is in reference to Mayweather’s comments about his exhibition against Paul where he claimed he could earn as much as £70million.

Woodley’s supporters were loving his get together with Mayweather, as one user commented: “Honestly seeing this made me feel much better about Tyron beating Paul.”

Another quipped: “Floyd just wants to see Jake get smashed up.”

A third added: “Jake’s team better have an ambulance on speed dial.”

Meanwhile one simply stated: “Get that money.”
