Watch the highlights and best trash talk from Showtime Boxing’s kick-off press conference for Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley on Thursday.

Thursday’s Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley press conference (watch it here) had a little bit of everything: a Transformers-like robot, personal trash talk and even a friendly wager.

Showtime organized a kick-off press conference for Paul vs. Woodley ahead of the headlining bout at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sun., Aug. 29, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, streaming online via Showtime pay-per-view (PPV).

“I think your career is over,” Paul told Woodley at the press conference in Los Angeles. “I’m going to bounce your brain off your skull — instant concussion. You will be on the mat. You’re just not the same Tyrone anymore.”

“I never was ‘Tyrone’,” Tyron Woodley retorted.

The bad blood did not end there.

“Jake, meet me in sparring tonight — let’s get a warm-up in,” the former UFC Welterweight champion invited. “I guarantee you when you get out of that gym, you will never walk into a ring with me, ever.”
