Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Showtime Boxing

Jake Paul has claimed that he has retired from boxing, despite entertaining the idea of future fights in the aftermath of his latest win.

Paul moved onto a 4-0 record with a tough-fought win over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley. 

While the 24-year-old YouTuber won on a split decision, it was the first fight that saw him  rattled and tested by an opponent, and has led to speculation that he will have to wait for a fight with Tommy Fury.

Speaking after the fight, Paul admitted: “I've been boxing for 18 months now. I haven't been to the dentist, I haven't got my hair cut in two years.

“My teeth are crooked, my nose is crooked.

“I might need to chill out for a second, I'm only 24. I'm changing and growing a lot, I'm making mistakes. I'm going to get back to the gym when I'm ready. I didn't fight my best tonight. I gave myself a C minus.”

He later tweeted that he was ‘retired,’ which may disappoint Fury and Conor McGregor, who are both eyeing a big PPV event. Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has also suggested that a fight between Fury and Paul could be held in the UK, which might see his fighter take part in another US match-up to kill time before Paul is ready to return to the ring.
