New, comments

Things got pretty wild at the Paul-Woodley press conference today with Tyron Woodley’s mom getting in the mix.

Woah! Things got well and out of hand at today’s press conference for Sunday’s Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley boxing pay-per-view. The two principles, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley, faced off to end their pre-fight press conference on Thursday.

Woodley, the former UFC welterweight champ, will make his professional boxing debut against Paul, who owes his fame to his massively popular YouTube following. Paul has already KO’d UFC veteran Ben Askren, NBA player Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Gib in his previous pro-boxing bouts.

Things got really wild shortly after the face off when members of the fighters’ respective entourages nearly went there.

Ariel Helwani got some footage:

MMA Fighting had another angle:

CBS reporter Brian Campbell asked Woodley’s mom if anyone “put hands on her” and she replied “Well, is he dead?” Presumably the answer to both questions is no.

For his part, Tyron Woodley’s reaction was predictable.

Afterward Tyron Woodley followed up with some of the Team Paul peeps:
