JAKE PAUL has laughed off fears about Tyron Woodley training with Floyd Mayweather.

Instead, the YouTuber-turned-boxer, 24, claims it will be a DISADVANTAGE for his ex-UFC opponent, 39.

Paul has won all three of his professional bouts so far

Paul and Woodley meet on Sunday August 29 in Cleveland, Ohio, to settle an ongoing feud dating back to April.

The pair clashed when Paul easily dismantled Woodley’s close friend Ben Askren.

And a heated dressing room encounter, followed by social media taunts, saw the grudge match eventually become official.

Woodley, who won 19 of his 28 professional MMA bouts, has never boxed before.

And with Paul having won all three of his bouts so far, Woodley has drafted in boxing legend Mayweather Jr for training.

Ironically, the veteran has just come off an exhibition draw against Paul’s older brother Logan.

But younger sibling Jake has no fears over Mayweather’s involvement in Woodley’s training camp, insisting it will not result in a positive outcome for the newbie boxer.

Paul told TMZ Sports: “I think it’s a disadvantage, actually.

“Him hopping around with different coaches, trying to learn different styles, that’s not how you progress in this sport.

“Floyd didn’t even have a strategy to go in and beat my brother, so how is he going to tell Tyron what to do?”
