Jake Paul Claims Tyron Woodley Wore Special Soles In His Shoes To Appear Taller At Pre-Fight Photoshoot

Jake Paul has accused Tyron Woodley of wearing special soles in his shoes to appear taller at a pre-fight photoshoot.

The pair traded some verbals at Fifth Street Gym in Miami to promote their upcoming clash on 28th August with some fans claiming YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul looked rather uncomfortable and avoided eye contact.

After the head-to-head Woodley, 39, tweeted: "You're already scared s***less.

"I don't have to slap you. But the moment I walk away after I knock you out, the world will rejoice!"

However, the duo later had a much more sombre studio meeting where Paul claims he saw the real Woodley.

He told his brother Logan's Impaulsive podcast: "I saw a different Tyron than I saw in the public face-off.

"I saw a Tyron who looked me in my eyes and saw with my shirt off and he just looked at me and he knew his destiny, he knew the big right hand was going to crack him in the skull and knock him out.

"I saw it in his eyes, I saw it deep down in his soul.

"I think he was wearing lifts in his shoes for the public face-off.

"Because when we faced off for the second time he's a much, much shorter guy.

"We're about the same weight, he's thick, beefy, we're both going to be cutting down to 190lbs."

The bout - Paul's fourth professional fight - takes place on Showtime Sport in the United States. No venue has been confirmed.

Paul has an undefeated record so far having beaten fellow streaming star AnEsonGib, former professional NBA player Nate Robinson and ex-UFC ace Ben Askren.

However, ex-UFC welterweight champ Woodley will surely be the biggest test of his credentials so far.
