Jake Paul has ruffled plenty of feathers in the combat sports world over the last 18 months

What have they said?

Paul said of the former UFC star: “He’s a good striker. He’s known for knocking people out. But I think when I beat Tyron, people have to put respect on my name.

“But that’s not what I’m here for, to be honest. I already know how good I am. I know that this is going to be another easy fight.

“That’s why Showtime is in business with me. You’re looking at the future of boxing.”

Woodley said of his clash with the social media star: “Easiest fight of my career and biggest purse of my career all in one night.

“Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can’t wait to shut this b***h up.

“This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
