Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley date: UK start time, undercard, live stream and how to watch as YouTube star takes on former UFC champion

Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul returns to the ring this summer when he faces former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Paul aka ‘The Problem Child’ destroyed ex-UFC star Ben Askren in April as he continued his much-criticised foray into professional boxing.

Paul has won his three pro fights to date with ease but has faced opponents far adrift of his skillset.

Woodley, a talented former UFC champion, has seen his MMA career stall in recent years but is expected to pose an entirely different test for the social media superstar.

The pair have been involved in another heated back-and-forth build-up to the clash and that will only increase as fight week approaches.

Paul v Woodley: What’s been said?

Jake Paul: “Tyron’s a good striker. He’s known for knocking people out. But I think when I beat Tyron, people have to put respect on my name.

“But that’s not what I’m here for, to be honest. I already know how good I am. I know that this is going to be another easy fight.

“That’s why Showtime is in business with me. You’re looking at the future of boxing.”

Tyron Woodley: “Easiest fight of my career and biggest purse of my career all in one night.

“Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can’t wait to shut this b***h up.

“This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
