Jake Paul is keen to show that he is serious about the sport, hoping to uphold his current record which saw him win all three of his bouts by TKO. However, some have said that his matchups against Nate Robinson and Ben Askren were not exactly the best contenders for the amateur fighter, with his upcoming fight against Tyron Woodley, expected to be his toughest match to date.
Paul and Woodley were supposed to collide on August 28, however, the match has officially been delayed to August 29. The exact reason for the 24-hour push has not been revealed. Reporter Dan Rafael was amongst the first to break the news on Twitter. He has also confirmed that the fight will take place on Showtime PPV with further details expected to be revealed in the following week.
Per source, the Jake Paul-Tyron Woodley @ShowtimeBoxing PPV fight will take place on Aug. 29 (a Sunday night). A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday in Los Angeles to formally announce the date and other aspects of the event. #boxing #PaulWoodley
