Jake Paul Makes Surprising Decision On His Boxing Future After Tyron Woodley Knockout

Jake Paul will not be returning to the ring anytime soon after his devastating knockout of Tyron Woodley last week, it's been reported.

The 25-year-old has been incredibly active in between the ropes in recent times, fighting four times in 13 months.

His first two bouts in this period didn't go further than the second round as he knocked out both Nate Robinson and Ben Askren early on.

He then went the distance with Woodley in August before stopping him in brutal fashion in the rematch but still going six rounds.

Paul hasn't shied away from calling out other potential opponents but according to The Mirror, the 'Problem Child' is set for a seven-month break from the squared circle.

He will enjoy his first holiday in six years and instead turn his hand to promoting the rumoured bout between Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor.

The fight, which would be for the undisputed lightweight title, is being talked about as potentially the biggest in the history of women's boxing.

Serrano, who holds the WBC, WBO, and IBO female featherweight titles, signed with Paul's Most Valuable Promotions and fought on his last two undercards.

Paul, who is in partnership with manager and former UFC Chief Financial Officer Nakisa Bidarian would co-promote the bout alongside Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn, who he crossed paths with when he got involved with brother Logan's second meeting with KSI.


Paul is looking at a date in April or May at New York's iconic Madison Square Garden for his first event, though he will not be competing.

The main candidate for his next opponent is former world champion Julio César Chávez Jr, who claims Paul's team have already been in touch.

The 35-year-old wants a 50-50 split of the purse but has said he would forfeit his earnings if he failed to beat the YouTube star.

"I hope I can get a few million with Jake Paul. If he beats me, I’ll retire, I don’t get paid. I don’t want money if I don’t beat him,” he told TV Boxeo. 

“Retirement – not interested in his money if I do not win.

"[The Pauls] generate a lot of expectations and money, a match with me would be good. They haven’t learned how to fight well and I can take advantage of that. Jake Paul can punch, but he’s not a boxer."
