Floyd Mayweather Jr. revealed on Twitter that he is training UFC welterweight contender Tyron Woodley to take out internet star Jake Paul. The retired boxer has been hitting the gym hard in preparation for his fight with Manny Pacquiao, but he doesn’t just want to be a boxer. “Floyd, who is training me for the fight against Manny Pacquiao, said he was working on a new move that he calls the ‘Bulldog,’ which involves tackling, taking down, and striking an opponent with an open guard,” Woodley said. “He’s been featuring me in some of his videos and he told me that he’s been training me to take out the most hated person on the internet, Jake Paul.” “
Floyd Mayweather has taken his eye off his undefeated boxing career for a moment, to train his protege. The fighters are reportedly training together in Nevada for the upcoming Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight, but their relationship isn’t limited to the ring. Mayweather has reportedly been training Tyron Woods for his future UFC career, and is looking to make the welterweight champ the face of the company.
Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer ever, right? Just a year ago, many would have said so. But a guy named Tyron Woodley has caught the eye of the world’s most famous fighter, and he’s doing so with a simple, but brilliantly executed tactic.
Tyron Woodley is a professional football player. and Jake Paul will face off on Aug. 29 in one of the year’s most anticipated boxing bouts. Despite the fact that neither of them is a boxer, their bout will be the main event of a Showtime Boxing pay-per-view event. Woodley is being coached by Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his trainer, and he has great expectations for his boxing debut.
Tyron Woodley was contacted by Floyd Mayweather in order to prepare him for his bout with Jake Paul.

Woodley has fought 27 times in his mixed martial arts career and is a former UFC champion. He’s about to enter a boxing ring for the first time, so it’s only logical that he’d want to learn from the greatest.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is regarded as one of boxing’s most accomplished boxers. He openly said that he will work with Woodley to help him prepare for the bout. The decision comes as no surprise, given the 44-year-animosity old’s with the Paul brothers, Jake and Logan.
Woodley discussed his training camp experiences with Mayweather on the All the Smoke podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson.
“Every morning he runs with me, and we work out every day.” Gerald Tucker, the trainer, is contacting him to make sure he’s okay. Woodley’s technique and footwork have been scrutinized by Mayweather and his trainer on a daily basis. He meets with Mayweather once a week to talk about his development in the ring.
This is a battle that the Ferguson, Missouri native is taking very seriously. “I haven’t seen my kids in a long time,” Woodley said. “I miss the s— out of my boys and daughter.” He’s all in, and he’s hopeful that his hard work will pay off on fight night.
“This marks the start of my new reign. For a long time, you will see me at the top.”
A ‘bloodbath’ is promised by Woodley.
In the months building up to the exhibition fight, Woodley and Paul have exchanged insults. Showtime has done an excellent job of marketing and hyping this bout.
The two combatants are 15 years apart in age, and the younger Paul has utilized trolling to promote the bout. On All the Smoke, Woodley took a dig at his opponent, claiming that Paul grew up playing UFC video games like Woodley.
He’ll salute me, and he’d better. As a kid, he probably used to play video games with me. He’ll speak about how wonderful of a champion I was, and how terrific of a striker I was. He’ll relegate himself to the role of Disney YouTuber.
“It will be lights on, then lights off very quickly,” Woodley said of what will happen after the bell sounds. It will be a “bloodbath,” according to him, which may signal problems for the social media star.
Days before the bout, Woodley and Jake Paul’s camps almost came to blows.
Boxing on pay-per-view is about more than simply the fight. Floyd Mayweather is certain to have discussed it with his protégé. The allure is also a major role. The two combatants had heated moments during press conferences. This one was no exception, as Woodley and Paul’s camp mates got into a fight.
Woodley saw someone from the Paul camp conversing with his mother after the press conference ended and the combatants were posing for group pictures. He got angry and confronted the other side. His crew prevented the former MMA fighter from doing anything that might jeopardize his fighting abilities.
He may be heard exchanging foul language with the Paul camp on the video. Things were on the verge of escalating in a way that had nothing to do with boxing. After the news conference, he told ESPN, “One thing I don’t do is disrespect.”
On All the Smoke, Woodley stated, “The entertainment element is going to meet the real athletic aspect.” The entertainment aspect has already been taken care of. It’s now up to the combatants to take care of business in the ring.
Tyron Woodley has said that this will be a “real fight.” It certainly is now, if it wasn’t before.
