JAKE PAUL offered fans a glimpse into his training camp with footage of the YouTuber sparring and hitting the pads.
The social media star faces ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley on Sunday, August 29 in his home of Cleveland.
After a press tour in Los Angeles and then Ohio, Paul returned to Puerto Rico to continue preparations for what will be his fourth professional fight.
And in a video uploaded online, 24-year-old landed some eye-catching combinations on his sparring partner.
In particular, a uppercut and left hook combination won praise from his trainer, former cruiserweight contender BJ Flores.
A separate clip of Paul on the pads with Flores in Miami saw the American celebrity firing off quick combinations.
Paul comes into the fight 3-0, all by knockout, but has so far faced only limited opposition.
He has beaten internet rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and most recently retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.
Paul knocked out Askren – a training partner of Woodley’s – in the first round in April.
And it left former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic , 38, impressed, as he hailed his fellow Cleveland native.

Miocic told Paul: “Someone asked me about you in an interview and I said, ‘He’s getting better’ and that was scary.
“He’s new to this sport and he’s getting that good that fast, and when you fought Ben I thought Ben was tough, he’s fought the best and never really got knocked out.
“But it’s a fight and you were getting better, and look what happened.”
