Paul, 24, posted on Instagram: “Today launching my non profit charity foundation @boxingbullies was a surreal moment and truly a dream come true.

“Today we talked about our initiative to fight back against bullying, put the kids through a 50 minute tough boxing workout, sponsored 15 amateur fights, and gave away over 100 pairs of gloves.

“Boxing has helped me learn so much about myself and realize what’s important in life.

“I want to share this beautiful sport with as many kids as possible.

“Our mission is to instill confidence, leadership, and courage in the youth through the sport of Boxing and to get Boxing gloves into to as many kids hands as possible across the world, while fighting back against the ever increasing problem of bullying and cyber bullying in our generation.”

Paul first began boxing in 2018 and beat fellow YouTuber Deji – younger brother to British celebrity KSI – in an exhibition bout.

But since then, he has turned professional and currently has a record of 3-0, all by knockout.

Paul faces ex-UFC champion Woodley, 39, on Sunday, August 29 in his fourth and most challenging fight to date.

But has so far beaten only limited opposition since his January 2020 debut.

That includes against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 36, a renowned grappler.

But he will be tested like never before against Woodley, who reigned the UFC welterweight division from 2016-2018 but is without a win in three years.
