Jake Paul is coming out of retirement just ONE DAY after walking away from the sport following his victory over Tyron Woodley.
Paul announced his retirement on social media after narrowly out-pointing Woodley in the main-event of his card last weekend.
He improved his record to 4-0 after beating the former UFC welterweight champion in his home town of Cleveland.
But the 24-year-old shocked fight fans when he announced that he was quitting the sport a day after recording the biggest win of his budding career.
He tweeted: "Updated status: Retired boxer."

I'm coming out of retirement
'The Problem Child' is taking a page out of Conor McGregor's book by reversing his retirement decision.
The budding boxer appeared to aim a dig at the UFC superstar by declaring himself the new 'face of the fight game'.
He told MMA Junkie: "There's a new face of the fight game. That's it.
"Tonight showed my ability. It got more people interested.
"The biggest names in the sport are tweeting about me, so it's already on a whole other level now."
Paul could return to the ring before the end of the year, with Woodley looking for a rematch after feeling hard done by the judges' scorecards.
There's also Tommy Fury, who clashed with Paul's team following his victory over Anthony Taylor on the undercard.
But one thing's for sure, there are no shortage of opponents.
