Jake Paul plans to announce that his next fight will be against former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley.

The last of these was against former UFC fighter Ben Askren in April, with Paul knocking him out just two minutes into the first round.
Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley agree on a deal for a boxing match
The Problem Child has become public enemy No. 1 in the mixed martial arts world with his comments about the sport and some of its biggest names.
Many UFC stars have proclaimed him, but it seems that Woodley is the man who will get the chance to silence his compatriot.
Mike Coppinger of the Athletic claims the fight has been set for an unknown date.
“Sources: Jake Paul and former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley have agreed a deal for a boxing match,” he tweeted Monday night.
“Jake recently signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime. Friday face-off in Miami scheduled to promote the event. Paul comes out of the first round KO of Ben Askren.’
Both Paul and Woodley had hinted about the fight in their social media stories on Monday, leading many to believe the fight was a foregone conclusion before the message. Paul also revealed that the fight will be made official on Tuesday.
“Fight announcement in the morning. This will be the biggest fight yet x5. This will be the hardest fight I’ve had, by far the hardest opponent, the most famous opponent. We are going to break another boxing PPV record,” Paul wrote on his Instagram stories.
Woodley, who was the 170-pound champion between 2016 and 2019, left the UFC earlier this year after his fourth loss in a row.
