Youtuber turned skilled boxer Jake Paul claims he’s now a “retired boxer” after his 8-round, split-decision victory towards UFC fighter Tyron Woodley Sunday night time.
The 24-year previous Paul, now 4-0 in skilled fights, made the stunning announcement through Twitter Monday night time.

After his victory Sunday, Paul teased a possible future bout with infamous former UFC Champion Conor McGregor who’ve clashed on social media earlier than.
It didn’t look like retirement was on his thoughts then.
“We’re on the trail to quite a bit greater fights, I’m salivating too as a result of I’m simply getting warmed up,” Paul stated, through MMA Junkie.
Paul’s retirement tweet might be a jab at McGregor, who introduced his retirement in 2016 earlier than returning to the ring, since when he’s had considerably much less success.
Paul and Woodley wagered that the winner of Sunday’s battle would tattoo his title on the loser’s physique.
On Monday, Paul tweeted his circumstances for Woodley’s tattoo, which is able to say “I really like Jake Paul.”
Paul stated the tattoo have to be 3″x2″ in dimension, can’t be lined, have to be there completely, have to be posted on social media and have to be seen with shorts and shirt on.
