JAKE PAUL returns to the ring this week against yet another former UFC star in Tyron Woodley.

The Problem Child’s fourth professional outing will see him lock horns with former UFC welterweight champion.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley will take in Paul’s hometown

The blue touch paper for their fight was lit moments before Paul’s demolition of Woodley’s good friend Ben Askren in April.

The pair were involved in a heated back-and-forth in the dressing room that left Woodley fuming.

And their subsequent slanging match on social media has teed up the interesting grudge match, which, on paper, is the toughest fight of Paul’s young boxing career.

Here’s everything you need to know about the pair’s upcoming bout:

What have they said?

“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.”
