And The Chosen One’s clash with Paul will land him the biggest payday of his career

Woodley’s clash with the social media star turned boxer will mark his professional boxing debut, which Showtime chief Stephen Espinoza claims will see The Chosen One take home a ‘career-high’ purse.

He told MMA Fighting: “I think there are some people out there who dismissed Tyron’s claim as something for marketing.

“That wasn’t said, Tyron didn’t make that comment to market the event. That doesn’t sell pay-per-views.

“He made that comment because it’s true. I’ve talked to him about it, I’ve talked to Malki [Kawa] about it and they all confirmed it is a career-high payday.

“He is getting a guarantee that is more than he’s ever made before. That does say something.

“It says something about the business model that Jake has and it says something about sort of the business model of boxing versus MMA where there’s more of a tradition of the fighters taking home the lion’s share of the money.”


Woodley is champing at the bit to get his hands on Paul and has vowed to viciously KO the 24-year-old.

He said: “You will visualize Jake Paul getting his head knocked smooth off his neck.

“Sometimes you talk yourself into a situation that you can’t back yourself out of … my mom used to say, ‘Your mouth wrote a check that your ass can’t cash.’ That’s exactly what happened.

“Now, you got a motherfer that’s going to fight you like you ain’t never been fought before.

“Ain’t no sparring you can do to mothef***ing get ready for it.”

“Ain’t no meditation. Ain’t no kumbaya. Ain’t no mama say, mama sa mama coosa.

“Ain’t s**t you can do. You getting your ass beat. I’m pumped up about it.”

Former Disney star Paul is currently 3-0 as a pro boxer having registered stoppage wins over AnEson Gib, Nate Robinson and Woodley’s good friend Ben Askren.

And The Problem Child has vowed to add Woodley’s name to his victim list in devastating fashion.

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

He said: “Tyron’s a seasoned striker who has fought the best MMA fighters in the world but will be dropped by a Disney teen star in 2 rounds.”

“Maybe this time Dana White will actually be a man of his word and put his money on his former champion instead of trying to undermine my success like a jealous ex.

“Influencer vs MMA….let’s get it on. It’s Showtime.”
