Warning to Jake Paul: Tyron Woodley is in a different league compared to Ben Askren.

Although Woodley has never fought in the boxing ring as a professional, the former UFC welterweight champion and future UFC Hall of Famer demonstrated during a recent media workout that he has solid fundamentals and a good foundation.

Check out the video below, where ‘T-Wood’ shows off his shadowboxing skills to promote the upcoming fight.

Woodley isn’t known for putting combinations together or utilizing angles in the traditional boxing sense, but the UFC veteran packs a serious punch and has some sharp hands — just ask Darren Till or Stephen Thompson.

Paul is 3-0 in the boxing ring with highlight reel stoppage wins over AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren. The YouTuber-turned-boxer has promised to KO Nate Diaz after he takes care of business against Woodley on Aug. 28.

The bout will likely take place in Miami, Florida where Jake’s older brother Logan Paul recently fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an eight-round exhibition at Hard Rock Stadium.
