The eyes of the entertainment world will be squarely on Miami, Florida this weekend as Logan Paul prepares to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an eight-round boxing exhibition. However, once the bout is over, the attention will shift toward a boxing match involving Paul’s brother, Jake.
Earlier this week, Jake Paul and former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley announced that they’d square off in the ring on August 28. Paul enters the bout with three consecutive knockouts against less than stellar competition. Many believe that Woodley will be far Paul’s stiffest test, but this bout will also provide a challenge for the former UFC champion. Woodley has never boxed as a pro and must use the next 10 weeks to prepare for the bout. To help him get ready for the challenge, Woodley has enlisted the help of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
In the lead-up to his bout with Logan Paul, Mayweather Jr. was asked about the upcoming matchup between Paul and Woodley. The undefeated prizefighter used his time to extend an offer to Woodley.
“Give me Tyron Woodley,” Mayweather Jr. said.
“I’m going to make sure I get in camp and I’m going to train him for this fight. I want Tyron Woodley to come to Las Vegas and work with us.”
After the offer was extended, Woodley promptly responded by asking a simple, rhetorical question.
“They just texted me, let’s do it,” Woodley replied.
“I just talked to him today. For sure, why would I not train with the greatest boxer of all-time? He’s already my dog. We’ve been talking about training anyways. I’m definitely going to take him up on that.”
