Jake Paul thinks it’s time for NFL veteran and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow to transition to boxing.

In the aftermath of Paul’s latest boxing bout, questions have been swirling about who he will fight next. Paul (4-0 in boxing) defeated Woodley (19-7-1 in MMA, 0-1 in boxing) via a split decision (watch highlights here) in Showtime Boxing’s pay-per-view (PPV) headliner last night (Sun., Aug. 29, 2021). The event took place inside Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.

While Paul goes back-and-forth in the media with the likes of former two-division Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, one name on his mind appears to be National Football League (NFL) star Tebow.

“Aye, @TimTebow. I think it’s time for you to get into boxing?!” Paul wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

aye @TimTebow I think it’s time for you to get into boxing ?!

The callout comes one day after Paul teased his retirement. If Paul were to step away at the tender age of 24, he would conclude his professional boxing career with an undefeated (4-0) record. He earned consecutive (technical) knockouts against fellow Internet personality AnEsonGib, former NBA player Nate Robinson and former UFC fighter Ben Askren (watch here). His most recent bout was the split decision against Woodley.

Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley fight purse, salaries: How much money each fighter earned in Sunday boxing match

CBS Sports 01 September, 2021 - 09:10pm

Sunday's fight between social media star Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley drew a serious amount of attention. Fights that big tend to make loads of money for the fighters involved, and Paul vs. Woodley was no different.

The Ohio State Athletic Commission released the official fight purses for the event, with Woodley and Paul both earning $2 million for the fight, which was won by Paul via split decision. Paul improved his career record to 4-0 with the victory while Woodley was making his professional boxing debut. 

This was an increase for Paul, who earned a reported $690,000 for his third bout against Ben Askren, which he won by devastating first-round knockout. 

Amanda Serrano defended her WBC, WBO, and IBO female featherweight titles in the night's featured undercard bout, taking a decision over Yamileth Mercado. Serrano made $75,000 for her title defense, with Mercado earning $45,000 in her losing effort.

Here are the complete reported payouts from the event, which do not include any money given to the fighters by Paul, who had vowed to distribute part of his earnings to ensure career-best paydays for those on the card. The numbers also do not reflect any earnings via financial cuts of pay-per-view sales.

Jake Paul says he’s ‘coming out of retirement’ 24 hours after making announcement

Bloody Elbow 01 September, 2021 - 04:00am

Jake Paul may hold the record of the shortest “retirement” stint in all of prizefighting.

It didn’t take long for “The Problem Child” to retract this announcement. A little over 24 hours after creating some buzz for himself online, the 24-year-old internet sensation posted this tweet on Tuesday night.

It’s easy to dismiss this as his usual brand of trolling, or he could also be making a mockery of the retirement trends in prizefighting. But he does have a list of options for his next ring appearance, one of them a potential match against Tommy Fury.

Oddsmakers already have Fury as the -175 favorite, a first time in Paul’s boxing stint where he’s the underdog (+120).

Paul currently holds a 4-0 professional record after defeating former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley via split decision.
