But the YouTube star has been training for the fight just under 2,000 miles away in the boxing nation of Puerto Rico.

And video shared by BT Sport captured Paul drilling padwork with his trainer BJ Flores and hitting heavy bags.

Paul is 3-0, all by knockout with wins over YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

And he returns to the ring against Woodley, 39, in his fourth and most challenging fight to date.

It will mark the ex-UFC champion’s boxing debut, and he has been training with American legend Floyd Mayweather, 44, to prepare.

And Mayweather’s current coach Gerald Tucker has been one of Woodley’s main trainers during their camp.

The two were filmed hitting the pads together working on speed and combinations.

Paul previously criticised Woodley for choosing to train with Mayweather and claimed it would work in his favour.

He told TMZ Sports: “I think it’s a disadvantage, actually.

“Him hopping around with different coaches, trying to learn different styles, that’s not how you progress in this sport.

“Floyd didn’t even have a strategy to go in and beat my brother, so how is he going to tell Tyron what to do?”
