Five division world champion Floyd Mayweather is willing to train MMA veteran Tyron Woodley for his August pro boxing debut against Youtube star Jake Paul.
This coming Sunday night in Miami, the 44-year-old Mayweather will return to the ring in an exhibition fight with Jake's older brother, 26-year-old Logan Paul, on Showtime pay-per-view.
Paul vs. Woodley will also be carried by Showtime Pay-Per-View.
Back in April, Jake Paul stopped Woodley's close friend, MMA veteran Ben Askren, in a single round.
Woodley, a former five time UFC champion, is viewed as the toughest fight of Paul's career.
Mayweather wants Woodley to come to Las Vegas to get properly prepared at the Mayweather Boxing Club.
“Well, give me Tyron Woodley. I make sure I get in camp and train him for this fight,” Mayweather said. “I want Tyron Woodley to come to Las Vegas and work with us.”
Woodley would later confirm that he was indeed approached by Mayweather and his team - who expressed their interest in helping him get ready for Paul.
“[Mayweather and his team] just texted me, let’s do it,” Woodley said. “I just talked to him today so for sure, why would I not train with the greatest boxer of all time? He’s already my dog and we’ve been talking about training anyway, so for sure. I’m definitely going to take him up on that.”
Last month, Mayweather and Jake Paul were involved in a wild scuffle - when Paul snatched Mayweather's cap off his head and attempted to run away with it. Both teams got involved and some punches were exchanged, with Paul suffering a black eye.
