Jake Paul Suggests He Has Retired From Boxing

Jake Paul has suggested he's retired from boxing just as he was getting started.

Around 24 hours after defeating former UFC star Tyron Woodley in a boxing match in Ohio, he's posted on Twitter a cryptic message that could point at his fighting future.

The YouTuber-cum-fighter said: "Updated status: retired boxer."


He hasn't made reference to whether he's referring to himself after winning four bouts or if he's referring to Woodley not boxing again.

Paul followed it up with another tweet, saying: "When I put that s**t in my bio I'm not just saying it to say it, do the math - do the debating and when it all comes back you will agree."

That's potentially in reference to people doubting his ability as a boxer.

Many have questioned whether he's as good as he thinks he is, especially considering none of his opponents have been actual boxers.


We've had two former UFC fighters, a former NBA basketballer and a fellow YouTuber.

However, the mixed messaging continued on social media when he asked 'who's next' just after defeating Woodley.

While many have tipped Paul to take on Tommy Fury next after the two have traded social media insults in the past few months, his recent loser wants to come back for seconds.


After the fight was over on Sunday (August 29) night, Woodley called on his opponent to forget the Fury fight and 'run it back'.

Paul responded by saying only if Woodley made good on a bet and got 'I love Jake Paul' tattooed on his body. The former MMA fighter said he would get it on his thigh and agreed to the parameters set out by Paul.

But Jake also didn't dismiss taking on Tommy Fury, who is the younger brother of two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.


Tommy found Paul after their fights in the backstage area and told his rival to 'stop running' so they could get the fight on. Things got heated and the pair was split up by security teams.

Speaking afterwards, the undefeated American claimed it would be an easy fight, saying, "I would run that s*** easy - that's an easier fight than Tyron in my opinion.

"People say he's a real boxer - OK, maybe, let's run it real boxer."

So, it's incredibly confusing whether he's retired or if he's keen to continue cementing his name in the boxing world.
