What did Jake Paul say to Tyron Woodley mom?

In a video from Sporting News writer Andreas Hale, Woodley became upset when a member of Paul's camp, dressed in an orange shirt with a backwards black cap, said unspecified words to Woodley's mother, who was in attendance. “I'll f—ing sleep you right now.” Sporting News AUTyron Woodley, sister erupt on Jake Paul 'groupie' who trash-talked mother at press conference

Jake Paul is now 1-1 in his attempts to grab the hat off fighters after coming face-to-face with Tyron Woodley and nearly inciting a melee at the Paul vs. Woodley ceremonial weigh-ins on Saturday in Cleveland.

Hours after both fighters made weight without incident, Paul and Woodley engaged in a tense staredown on stage as they stood just over 24 hours away from one of the most highly anticipated boxing matches of the year.

Having tipped the scale at 190 pounds, Paul immediately started snacking on his post weigh-in meal while revealing what he said to Woodley during their faceoff.

“I said you’re dead,” Paul said. “That was it. I tried to grab his cheeks.”

As Paul continued to munch on his chicken fingers, Woodley made his way over to the 24-year-old social influencer. That’s when Paul attempted to grab Woodley’s hat off his head but failed as security and members from both camps swarmed the scene.

While there was some pushing and shoving from members of the two entourages, security was able to intervene to ensure an actual fight didn’t happen. At that point, the shouting continued as the team from Showtime pushed Paul and Woodley to opposite sides of the stage, drawing the weigh-ins to a close with the Cleveland crowd on its feet.

Paul came up with his catchphrase “gotcha hat” after trading trash talk with Floyd Mayweather earlier this year before snatching Mayweather’s hat during a press event for his exhibition bout against Jake’s older brother, Logan Paul.

Paul was nearly tackled by security while Mayweather was enraged by the incident, but the former YouTube celebrity turned undefeated boxer didn’t have as much luck trying to steal Woodley’s hat on Saturday.

Instead, Woodley pulled back and laughed at Paul before eventually yelling “you can have the hat” as the two fighter camps were separated.

Focused and intense as ever after hitting 189.5 pounds for his pro boxing debut, Woodley promised to deliver a vicious finish when he finally gets to trade hands with Paul on Sunday.

“It’s over,” Woodley said. “That’s all I can think about, it’s over. I’m about to go big in every level, every plane, every category. He’s shaking. He’s quivering and this dude he should be ‘cause I’m about to hurt him in a way he never felt before. And that’s on Mama Woodley.”

Is Ferguson, Missouri the "murder capital of the world" like Tyron Woodley suggested to Jake Paul?

Sportskeeda 28 August, 2021 - 05:49am

No, Tyron Woodley's claim in front of Jake Paul regarding the city of Ferguson is not well-founded. Though the city has seen its fair share of violence, Ferguson, Missouri does not figure in the world's most violent cities.

However, the city of St. Louis in Missouri is seen as one of the most violent cities in the world as per worldpopulationreview.com.

The conversation started with Jake Paul addressing Tyron Woodley's rap music in a face-to-face conversation with Ariel Helwani as the moderator. As Woodley responded positively, he fired back at Paul's clear attempt at insinuation by addressing his apparel. 'The Problem Child' wore a black T-Shirt with a gang sign along with five chains around his neck.

Tyron Woodley questioned Jake Paul's authenticity in terms of being able to pull a look like that off. When Paul accused Woodley of pretending to be "from the streets," 'The Chosen One' said:

As well as Tyron Woodley's jibe at Jake Paul in regards to to Ferguson, there were various other allegations thrown by the two opponents during the media event.

During the face-to-face with Ariel Helwani, both Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley constantly attempted to get into each other's heads.

Paul attempted to discredit Woodley's combat sports career. Woodley fired back by saying that Paul's career was nothing but a bucket list, and that he was not a part of the world of combat sports.

The fighters soon began adding allegations of PED use into the mix. In one situation, Jake Paul stated that Tyron Woodley is nothing but a career speed bump that he will slow down for but ultimately overcome. In response, Woodley said:
