JAKE PAUL and Tyron Woodley CLASHED once again as they weighed in ahead of their Las Vegas bout on Sunday.

Paul, 24, attempted to provoke his opponents in several ways, including an attempt to steal his hat.

Then the Youtuber made a grab at his opponent, possibly to steal his hat

The Youtube star did the same to Floyd Mayweather before the boxing icon fought his brother Logan earlier this year.

That hat grab sparked a mass brawl and infuriated Mayweather; on this occasion Paul produced the same outcome but was unsuccessful in grabbing Woodley’s hat.

The pair came face to face at the weigh-in before Paul launched himself at the former UFC star, but quick reflexes from the 39-year-old meant he evaded Paul.

Security and Woodley’s team quickly stepped in to diffuse the situation, with an animated cameraman wagging his finger at Paul in disapproval.

Seconds before the Ohio-born star was eating fried chicken on stage, and reportedly flicked some at Woodley, possibly in an attempt to rile him up.

But Paul denied he was going for Woodley’s hat, claiming he tried to grab his cheeks.

He claimed: “I said you’re dead, that was it. I tried to grab his cheeks.”

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

There has been animosity between the pair throughout the build-up to the fight.

On Thursday one of Paul’s entourage, ‘DCut’, was involved in a heated exchange with Woodley’s mother, sparking a small scuffle during a press conference.

Previously Paul trolled his opponent by offering him a wager – he would double Woodley’s money if he won but if he lost he would have to donate his purse to a charity of Paul’s choosing.

The fighters also have an agreement that whoever loses has to have the winner’s name tattooed on them, preceded by the words ‘I love’.
