Island Boys Get Drinks Thrown At Them At Jake Paul Fight

By Jake Massey

The Island Boys were not warmly welcomed at the Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley fight, with crowds booing and throwing drinks at the pair. Watch here:


The twins - who went viral on TikTok after posting a song about being 'island boys' - turned up to the fight in Tampa, Florida, and received a very frosty reception.

Footage shows the island chaps - real names Franky and Alex Venegas - getting roundly booed, before drinks were thrown in their direction.


The 20-year-olds, who have millions of followers on TikTok, nearly ended up getting in a brawl, with journalist Karisa Maxwell reporting that police told the brothers to sit down and 'chill out' or they'd be asked to leave.

Inside the ring, things didn't liven up until the sixth round, when Paul delivered a devastating knockout.

YouTuber Paul was originally supposed to be fighting Tommy Fury, but he had to pull out due to illness and injury.


Former UFC champion Woodley, 39, stepped up to fill his place after losing to 24-year-old Paul on points in August, but this time around the outcome was much more clear-cut.

The first five rounds were uneventful, with boos echoing around the crowd until an explosive moment of action in the sixth, when Paul caught Woodley with a crashing right hook which sent him face-planting on to the canvas.

Paul has now knocked out every opponent he has faced, and this was his most impressive yet.


The win did not come easily for Paul though, as he sustained a cut in the third round caused by an accidental elbow from Woodley, prompting blood to pour down his face.

For a moment, he seemed more troubled than he ever has by a string of shots from Woodley, but the bout was well and truly put to bed when he landed his crushing hook in the sixth.

Speaking after the fight, he said: "This guy [Woodley] is a legend and respect to him for taking the fight with two weeks' notice.

"It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had the job done.


"I was setting the punch up the whole fight. He didn't see it coming. Like a lumberjack, timber. It's got to be the moment of my life."
