Now, on August 29th, Logan Paul’s brother, another YouTuber And if you need a bizarre reason to watch, the loser
How did it happen?
The Paul brothers, Logan and Jake, are both YouTubers who turned into boxers, which seems like a strange career path, but it is what it is. For one thing, they’re young. Jake Paul is only 24 and Logan Paul is 26 so they have the youth on their side and their YouTube cash allows them to do whatever they want with their free time. And what they seem to want is to beat up people and get beat up for it.
These fights are not always for the record books, but for the bank books. (Logan Paul’s fight in June with 44-year-old Mayweather was just a show.) While Jake Paul has played three professional fights and won all of them, his opponents weren’t professional boxers in their prime. Paul hit YouTuber AnEsonGib, former professional basketball player Nate Robinson, and retired MMA fighter Ben Askren (the). And all of the Paul brothers’ fights make headlines and gossip, adding to their fame and bank balances.
Woodley was talking about Jake Paul at the Askren fight, and that led to the planned Paul Woodley fight. “The easiest fight of my career and the biggest wallet of my career in one night,” said Woodley of the Paul match. according to ESPN. “Basically, they brought me to take out the trash.”

Second fight? TBA …
Whatever the outcome, Woodley already believes that one fight won’t be enough.
“We’ll probably fight twice to be honest” he said.
Paul isn’t so sure about this second fight.
“I won’t fight Woodley after I beat him,” said Paul. according to the LA Times. “There’s no point, you know. I’m going to beat him down by force so there won’t be a second fight.”
The two fighters have one creepy bet ride on the result. If Paul loses he has to get an “I love Tyron Woodley” tattoo somewhere, and if Woodley loses he has to get an “I love Jake Paul” tattoo. (Both fighters are already tattooed, so another one won’t exactly be a new concept.)
Whoever gets the tattoo, you just know that there will be plenty of publicity for the actual tattooing itself, not to mention photos of the embarrassing final product. (Clever tattooists in the Paul Woodley Circle are probably already thinking about how to cover up or disguise the message at some point.)

“Not many people want to fight me. It’s going to be a great fight,” said Serrano. according to World Boxing News.
Mercado said she started her featherweight career before switching to bantamweight and is looking forward to fighting in her old weight class again.
“We’re going to leave everything in the ring and the ladies are going to steal the show,” she said, according to the World Boxing News report.

In the same interview, Paul also claimed “98% of the messages are fake ”, falsely claiming that“ health professionals ”say that masks do nothing to protect against the virus.
