Jake Paul fight Tyron Woodley on August 29

He is so far 3-0 in his career, all by knockout but has yet to face a real step up in competition.

But that will change next month in his hometown of Cleveland when he welcomes ex-UFC champion Woodley, 39, into the boxing ring.

Paul, 24, told DAZN: “For sure, this is my make-or-break fight. This is my hardest challenge.

“Tyron Woodley has been boxing way longer than I have. He’s been knocking people out while I was in high school in science class.

“This is definitely a tough challenge, and it’s the perfect narrative.”

“It’s high risk, right? My team and I know that going into this, that this guy is dangerous. He’s not light work. He’s not someone to just mess around with.

“But that’s what we wanted. I don’t want to take easy fights. I don’t want to pad my record. At each try, you will see my level of competition increase.

“So Tyron Woodley is the perfect man, and that’s why August 29, it’s going to be entertaining as hell.”

How Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley compare ahead of their boxing match

Paul has beaten online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 36, as a boxer.

But Woodley, who reigned as the UFC’s welterweight king from 2016-2018, will provide a whole new test.

The American did, however, leave the UFC this year after four straight losses and without a win in three years.
