Former UFC welterweight champion Woodley, 39, faces YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul, 24, in a high-profile boxing bout on August 28.
He will make his boxing debut in just over a month following a successful career as an MMA fighter.
And ahead of his first foray in the squared circle, Woodley has taken up Mayweather's offer.
'Money' extended an offer to 'The Chosen One' to train him ahead of his clash with 'The Problem Child'.
On Thursday, Mayweather took Woodley under his wings and helped him prepare for his showdown.
Woodley posted images of himself training with Mayweather, who can be seen advising him.

While Woodley is a novice in the world of professional boxing, he has an extensive background in MMA having fought under the Strikeforce and UFC banners.
And he's extremely confident of victory, predicting a knockout win when he meets Paul next month.
"At the end of the day, he's gonna get beat up. He's gonna get knocked out," he told the Michael Bisping Podcast.
"Hopefully, it's not too bad because what's happening is, his people are gassing him up that he can win.
"He accepted this fight, and I was very surprised he accepted this fight.
"They're gassing him up, and they're giving him that, 'You've got the power, he's old, he ain't won a fight a million years, you the younger, more hungry, he's taking you lightly, you can beat him.'
"They're lying to this kid, and they're gonna get him f**ked up.
"So, what's gonna happen is, I'm gonna beat him, I'm gonna knock him out, and hopefully it's not too bad where he doesn't want to do it again because I want to take the money again.
"I want to rob the bank twice. So that's the plan. I really don't have smoke with his brother Logan but s**t, after he sees what I do to his brother, he might want to get the hands too."
