CLEVELAND — The talking looked to be about over for Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley heading into their cruiserweight battle on Sunday night as both guys saw each other one more time on Saturday at the weigh-ins from the KeyBank State Theater. 

Woodley  came out to a chorus of boos. He stepped on the scales first and came in at 189.5 pounds. Next, Paul made his way to the scale to a shockingly mixed reaction from his home state. The 24-year-old weighed 190 pounds. An intense staredown ensued, but no physicality occurred, unlike on Thursday when both fight camps pushed, shoved, and hurled obscene language .

Paul did an interview while eating chicken fingers and let everyone know what he said to the former UFC welterweight champion when they were face-to-face.

“I said you’re dead,” Paul said. “That was it. I tried to grab his cheeks.”

Everything looked like it would go off without a hitch until Woodley made his way over towards Paul. As Woodley inched closer, Paul tried to have another "gotcha hat" moment like he did with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May but could not secure it off of the 39-year-old's head. It didn't stop there as Paul stuck his finger in Woodley's throat. Chaos nearly went down again like two days. But immediately, police and security intervened. After a bit of pushing, screaming, and shoving, law enforcement separated the teams to opposite sides to exit off the stage. 

Woodley, who is making his professional debut, made it abundantly clear that the Jake Paul hype train is getting derailed on Sunday night.

“It’s over,” Woodley said. “That’s all I can think about. It’s over. I’m about to go big in every level, every plane, every category. He’s shaking. He’s quivering, and this dude he should be ‘cause I’m about to hurt him in a way he never felt before. And that’s on Mama Woodley.”

Here is what happened at the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley weigh-ins.




Paul and Woodley almost get into another confrontation

Jake Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) and Tyron Woodley (0-0) are on the scale for the main event. 

Woodley, to a chorus of boos, is on the scale first and weighs 189.5 pounds.

Paul, to a surprisingly mixed reaction, is up next and is 190 pounds.

They had a seated staredown but it appeared it would be without incident. 

Woodley gave his interview without a problem. Paul did his and was eating chicken wings. Woodley walked over to try and hand Paul something. Paul tossed and then attempted to grab his hat, like he did to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May. 

Both teams along with police immediately jumped into the fracas. Cooler heads prevailed and each camp went their separate ways.


Co-main event is set

Up next is the co-main event as Amanda Serrano (40-1-1, 30 KOs) puts her WBC and WBO featherweight titles on the line against Yamileth Mercado (18-2, 5 KOs), Chihuahua, Mexico, 124 pounds

Mercado is first and weighs 124 pounds. Serrano, to a loud ovation, like Mercado is 124 pounds. 

A huge moment for Serrano on Sunday night.

Daniel Dubois U.S. debut is official

Heavyweights Daniel Dubois (16-1, 15 KOs), London, 238 pounds and Joe Cusumano (19-3, 17 KOs) are on the scale.

Cusumano is first and tips the scales at 235.5. Up next is Dubois, who makes his U.S. debut is 238 pounds. 

Montana Love and Ivan Baranchyk nearly comes to blows

Junior welterweights Ivan Baranchyk (20-2, 13 KOs) and Montana Love (15-0-1, 7 KOs) are on the scale. 141 pounds,

Love, a native of Cleveland, comes onto the scale to a good reception, weighs 140 pounds. Baranchyk, a former IBF 140-pound champion is 141 pounds.

It got heated between Love and Baranchyk. A lot of trash talk, body on body with neither guy willing to give an inch. 

Tommy Fury and Anthony Taylor with an intense staredown

Cruiserweights Tommy Fury (6-0, 4 KOs) and Anthony Taylor (0-1) are making their way to the scales.

Fury, the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, is 179 pounds. The bombastic Taylor who has endeared himself all week long is 175. 

An intense staredown as neither guy wanted to budge. Really looking forward to the four-round affair. 

Cleveland native Charles Conwell on the scale

Junior middleweights Charles Conwell (15-0, 11 KOs) and Juan Carlos Rubio (18-0, 9 KOs) get on the scale first. 

Rubio goes first and comes in at 153.5 pounds. The Olympian is next at 153 pounds.
