According to Cleveland 19 two boxing trainers who work for Jake Paul were arrested the day after Paul vs. Woodley in relation to an assault that left one man unconscious outside of the Yard House Restaurant in Crocker Park, located in the outer suburbs of Cleveland.

That outlet reports that one of the suspects told police that a physical altercation was the result of an argument inside the restaurant. The suspect said the man who was knocked unconscious had asked him to go outside and then “bumped him”.

The names of the two suspects have not been released.

Police detectives are investigating the incident to determine who was the aggressor before handing the case over to a prosecutor, who will then decide if charges are to be filed.

On August 29 Jake Paul notched the biggest win of his combat sports career when he took a split decision over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

That win followed his victories over former Bellator and ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren, former NBA player—and two-time slam dunk champion—Nate Robinson, and fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.

What’s next for Paul is anyone’s guess. Shortly after beating Woodley, ‘The Problem Child’ announced that he was retired from boxing. However, he reversed that decision days later.

Woodley is adamant that he wants a rematch with Paul. Though, surprisingly, Paul has been somewhat quiet over what he wants to do next in the boxing ring. Prior to fighting Woodley, Paul had mentioned fighting a number of MMA stars including Jorge Masvidal, Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor.

Paul has also maintained that one day he would like to fight the consensus top boxer on the planet, Canelo Alvarez. Recently Alvarez refused to rule that out, stating only that such a fight would not happen anytime soon.
