Video Of Jake Paul Trying To Intimidate Tyron Woodley Is Making People Cringe

A video of Jake Paul trying to strike fear into his opponent Tyron Woodley failed quite dramatically.

This will be the last stand off before the pair get into the ring and people found the YouTuber's attempt a bit cringey.

One user wrote: "Jake's a Poundland Conor McGregor."

A second user replied: "Was gonna dispute this but then remembered you can get things for 25p in Poundland."

Ouch.

Whilst they were of course referring to Conor McGregor's intimidation tactics that have worked well for him in the past, many were complimentary towards Woodley, who remained to keep his composure throughout.

A final user added: "Hats off to T Woodley throughout the entire build up to this fight. He could of easily slipped to Jakes level and helped by acting the clown for the circus (not that they really need anymore) but instead has kept it cool, controlled and professional and I admire him for that."

The fight will take place in the US tonight (Aug 29) and is set for eight rounds due to the weight limit being set at 190lbs (cruiserweight).

It will be a late one for Brits that want to tune in, as coverage starts at 1 am BST on Monday Aug 30.

The ring walks are set to take place around 4am UK time and the match is said to start around 5am.

Timings are subject to change and depends on the results and duration of the events on the undercard.

The fight is hosted in Cleveland, Ohio at the Rocket Mortgage Field House which is the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team.

Despite his Marmite-like popularity amongst fans, Jake Paul is making a generous gesture to all fighters on the undercard.

Many have praised the YouTube star for earning less in his fight in order for others to earn a bit more.

The Mirror reports that all the other boxers, from Tommy Fury to Tyron Woodley, will all make career-high winnings because of Jake's gesture.

He said: "It's coming out of my pockets for sure.

"Like, directly out of my purse.

"Everyone on the card is getting the biggest pay-day that they've ever had as a fighter and that's just part of my movement.

"Look, these fighters deserve more and I want everyone to be excited and I want everyone to know that we as fighters should take care of each other."
