JAKE PAUL has been putting himself through some rigorous strength and conditioning training in preparation for his rematch with Tyron Woodley.
The 24-year-old YouTuber was due to face Tommy Fury in Florida this weekend before the Love Islander pulled out through illness and injury.
Former UFC world champion Woodley has now stepped in to rematch Paul as he looks to avenge his split decision defeat back in August.
But the internet sensation is not taking his eye off the ball despite a late opponent change.
And he could be seen putting himself through some intense weight training and workout routines on Showtime’s All Access.
Paul is clearly putting in the work as he looks to move to 5-0 in his professional boxing career.
So far he has beaten fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, basketballer Nate Robinson, MMA star Ben Askren and Woodley.
And he insists his rise in the sport has completely changed his life.
The American told Pitch Boxing: “Yeah 100 per cent [it has changed my life]. When you live in public scrutiny from the time you’re 16-years-old, there’s a lot of resentment built up inside of you.
“A lot of hate towards the world, when you’re a target of media and comments, and all of those things.
“And so, I just felt like I had this aggression I needed to unleash on people’s faces…. I’m loving it. It’s great, and no one can tell me no.
“And that’s the beautiful thing about the sport, is I can do whatever the f*** I want, be whoever I want to be, say whatever I want and that’s liberating.
“You know, we live in a world where you have to be careful about every single thing you do.”
Meanwhile, Paul‘s trainer BJ Flores doesn’t expect the Woodley rematch to go the distance as he believes the YouTuber can find the knockout.
Ex-world title challenger Flores told SunSport: “Jake’s a lot better now than he was on August 29th, he’s a lot better.
“And you’ve got to remember, he just started boxing, so in a short period he gets a lot better very quickly.
“He’s only been boxing two years, so four months is 15 per cent of his entire career, so he’s getting a lot better.
“I know it will be a tough fight, Tyron will be tough in the beginning, but we expect Tyron won’t go the distance this time.
“It will be very tough for Tyron to keep pace with Jake, to handle with the kind of offence that Jake is bringing this time.
“It’s going to be a different fight this time and people will see that. Jake’s pace is going to be very high.”
