Floyd Mayweather says he wants to train Tyron Woodley for his upcoming fight against YouTuber Jake Paul this summer – and the former UFC star has been quick to take up his offer.
Woodley will try to end Paul’s run of three wins since he began his professional career on August 28, and it looks like he will have the help of the undefeated Hall of Famer as he plots his demise.
Mayweather, who is preparing to meet YouTuber’s brother Logan on Sunday night, was left furious by Paul last month when he stole his hat after the pair argued during a press conference, with “Money” chasing him and leaving him with a black eye. .

Paul expanded his record to 3-0 after stopping former UFC fighter Ben Askren in April – contributing to knockout wins over former basketball star Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.
And Mayweather, who is widely expected to overwhelm Logan in Miami, is already planning to take his brother down by inviting Woodley to spar and promising to get him in shape in Las Vegas.
“Well, give me Tyron Woodley,” Mayweather told the media. “I’ll make sure to get into the camp and train him for this fight.
“I want Tyron Woodley to come to Las Vegas and work with us.”

Woodley quickly accepted his offer, admitting that he would seize the opportunity to work with “the greatest boxer of all time” and had already planned to train with him in the past.
“They just texted me, let’s do it,” Woodley said. “I just spoke to him today, so why not train with the greatest boxer of all time?
“He’s already my dog and we talked about training anyway, so be sure. I’m definitely going to talk to him about that.’
Woodley was then asked if his fight with Jake would last more than three rounds.
“I’ll knock him out – bad. I don’t care what happens. I am ready [round] one through eight. The sooner the better.’

Woodley gave his prediction about Mayweather’s fight against Logan, saying: ‘It depends on what he wants to do. He can do it fast, he can keep it up, he can do whatever he wants. That fight is up to Floyd Mayweather.”
The 44-year-old’s practice fight against Logan is scheduled to last eight rounds – with the pair able to knock each other out, and the veteran fighter had previously emphasized that he has “no strategy” for the bout.
This week, he claimed he could bring his ‘Z game’ and still emerge victorious after the pair once again came face to face at a pre-fight media event.
“I don’t have to use my A-game, my B-game, my C-game. I can use my Z game,” Mayweather said at the Miami event. “You don’t even have to hit him hard. The result will be the same.’
