Former UFC champ Tyron Woodley to box Jake Paul

The Athletic’s Mike Coppinger first reported that Paul has agreed to a boxing match with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley for later this year.

MMA Junkie subsequently confirmed the booking with a person with knowledge of the agreement who asked to remain anonymous because the contest has not been formally announced.

Sources: Jake Paul and former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley have agreed to a deal for a boxing match. Jake recently signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime. Friday face-off in Miami planned to promote the event. Paul coming off first-round KO of Ben Askren

Paul (3-0 boxing) made headlines in April with a first-round knockout of former Bellator and ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren in a Triller Fight Club boxing event. Paul’s previous two victories came over NBA veteran Nate Robinson and YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.

The polarizing Paul signed a promotional contract with Showtime Sports earlier this month, and on Monday he took to social media to tease a new matchup.

“This will be the hardest fight I’ve had, the toughest opponent by far, the most known opponent,” Paul wrote on his Instagram. “We will break another boxing PPV record.”

Paul also took to Twitter to promise a formal bout announcement on Tuesday.

Woodley previously expressed his desire for the matchup, openly challenging Paul in an interview with TMZ.

“Come and get this smoke for real,” Woodley said. “I’m in, and I can actually find him. People that keep talking about fighting him, they’re not even in position to fight him. I can actually fight him.”

Woodley (19-7-1 MMA, 9-6-1 UFC) is currently ranked No. 11 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie welterweight rankings. The former UFC champion recently ended his tenure in MMA’s biggest promotion following an eight-year run. “The Chosen One” closed out his octagon career on a four-fight skid, ceding his title to current champ Kamaru Usman before also suffering setbacks against current top contenders Gilbert Burns, Colby Covington and Vicente Luque.
