ALL ACCESS: PAUL VS WOODLEY takes viewers beyond the ring as boxing’s newest superstar, Jake Paul, prepares to take on the toughest test of his burgeoning career, former UFC champ and striking specialist Tyron Woodley. The cameras take viewers into the fighters’ private lives as Paul, who is undergoing a rigorous camp in Puerto Rico, and Woodley, who is training in Miami with the help of Floyd Mayweather, ready themselves to do battle in front of a global audience.
In this video we go behind-the-scenes of the Paul vs. Woodley press conference, where the fighters make a bet on a tattoo for the loser. We also see Paul getting stretched with acroyoga and launching a charity called Boxing Bullies in his new home of Puerto Rico. With Woodley we see the regular training footage we are used to, but also get a glimpse of him in the recording studio. Woodley also discusses his tough childhood, which included being a family of 13 in a four bedroom house in Ferguson, MO.
On August 29 Woodley will be looking to go 1-0 as a pro boxer after a 12-year long career in MMA which saw him lift the UFC welterweight title. Prior to MMA Woodley’s collegiate wrestling career saw him become a two time NCAA Division I All-American and Big 12 Conference Champion.
Paul is looking to go 4-0 and follow up on wins over Ben Askren, Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.
