Tyron Woodley Goes To Jake Paul’s Hometown To Promote Crossover Bout

Tyron Woodley is taking Jake Paul seriously and followed him to his hometown of Cleveland to prove it.

Woodley headed to the renowned content creator and undefeated professional boxer Jake “The Problem Child” Paul’s hometown of Cleveland to face off for the second time this week with former UFC champion Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley.

The two faced off on Thursday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, site of their blockbuster boxing event set for Sunday, August 29, live on SHOWTIME PPV.

“This is where it all started for me,” said Paul, who grew up 15 miles from Cleveland in Westlake, Ohio. “This is where I grew up. This is a dream come true. This is surreal.

“I want to show kids in Cleveland their first boxing match. I want to inspire the next maybe Jake Paul that’s sitting in the stands cheering for me and show them that one day that they can be on this stage.”

Woodley said he is not playing games as he prepares for Paul.

“You want to go back and play Fortnite and Atari and Tic-Tac-Toe, as well?” Woodley said. “Or you wanna fight? You want to make bets like a little kid?

“I’m not going to get a tattoo, because I’m knocking him out. If he wants to walk around with my name on him, have at it. I think he wanted to do that anyway.”
