“The Problem Child” teases that his boxing days are over after beating former UFC champion at Showtime’s pay-per-view (PPV) event.

Jake Paul is now teasing that his boxing days are over following his big headlining fight against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight titleholder, Tyron Woodley.

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.

Conversations about Paul’s next opponent were taking place even before the Woodley fight and it only ramped up in its aftermath. The YouTuber-turned professional boxer had a backstage altercation with Tommy Fury, and considered a rematch against Woodley. Other names circulated before (and after) the fight include Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. But, if Paul is to be believed, his professional boxing days may be over.

“Updated status: Retired boxer,” he tweeted on Monday.

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.
