    Worrying signs

    Jake Paul has revealed he's exhibiting signs of CTE just a few years into his boxing career.

    The Problem Child told Graham Bensinger: "I got my brain scanned right before I started boxing and the doctor told me there's lack of blood flow from the concussions I had playing football to certain areas on my brain.

    "One of them I believe is the frontal lobe which is partial for memory and so on. After my first year of boxing, I went back and it was worse."

    Paul's physician urged him not to continue boxing after seeing the extent of the damage to his brain.

    He continued: "[The doctors] advice is don't do that sport.

    "That's all they can advise as a doctor, I think before it was affecting me at a rapid pace because I never took it easy.

    "I was always thrown in there with people who were way better than me until I started to slowly get to their level."

    Trolling Tommy

    Tommy Fury was forced out of his grudge match with Jake Paul due to illness and injury.

    But that didn't stop The Problem Child from mocking him for his withdrawal from their bout.

    During Friday's ceremonial weigh-ins, Paul donned a t-shirt that had a message for the youngest Fury brother.

    It read: "Tommy, this could have been you."

    Paul pressure

    Former interim UFC lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has taken to Instagram to beg Tyron Woodley put Jake Paul on the canvas tomorrow morning.

    The Highlight said: "The smartest best on the ticket is probably gonna be Paul by decision, because that's just how it works.

    "But I'm begging you, Tyron Woodley, knock this fool down at least once. Please!"

    Knock this fool down at least once. Please!

    Former UFC welterweight king Tyron Woodley has revealed why he didn't rush Jake Paul after nearly dropping him in the fourth round of their first bout.

    He said:“They made the comment that when somebody’s back is against the wall, somebody’s like a wounded dog, you’ve got to be patient. You’ve got to be patient on trying to finish that deal off.

    “Jake has shown in his fights, you watch the Nate Robinson fight, you watch when he knocked out Ben Askren, he wasn’t really looking at them at the time.

    "They walked forward, he looked like he was going to unload on Ben’s body. Then he came over the top. Nate rushed in and ran into a right hand.”

    He added: “You’ve got to respect power."

    Mind games?

    Jake Paul played the role of Mr Nice Guy in his face-off interview with Tyron Woodley earlier this week by giving the former UFC star a Rolex.

    Woodley, like many others, was baffled by the show of generosity days before their showdown.

    Was Paul's gift an attempt to get into Woodley's head? Perhaps.

    We'll soon find out if The Problem Child was successful.

    Woman on a mission

    Unified women's featherweight champion Amanda Serrano is on a mission to ensure she doesn't let a blockbuster showdown with Katie Taylor slip between her fingers.

    She tweeted: "2nite I do my share of securing The mega Fight vs @KatieTaylor. She did her part last week.

    "My team @jakepaul, Nakisa & @EddieHearn have put it together now it’s up to my performance to Lock it In.

    "DONT MISS MY FIGHT TONIGHT on @ShowtimeBoxing PPV Must See *Road To The Garden!"

    Final message

    Jake Paul was brimming with confidence after facing Tyron Woodley down during Friday's ceremonial weigh-ins.

    He roared: “I said it’s fucking Go Mode.

    "A different Jake Paul you’re gonna see this time, we’re f**king bucking in the middle of the ring, no more funny sh*t, no funny sh*t like last time, I’m f**kin’ him up! I’m f**kin’ him up!

    Paul gifts Woodley a ROLEX

    In one of the more bizarre turnouts of the week, Jake Paul gifted Tyron Woodley a ROLEX during their head-to-head for Showtime earlier this week.

    Paul said: He said: "As a gift of respect because it's time for me to knock him out", as he handed Woodley a wrapped present.

    Woodley opened it up and was surprised to see a Rolex waiting for him.

    Woodley responded: "I accept your gift. And all the bonuses, I accept it all. And I'm going to do the same thing on Saturday.

    "This dude is crazy. Do I know about this watch? Yeah I know about this watch.

    "Why wouldn't I accept it? He put a bow on it and wrapped it, I'm not going to be disrespectful.

    "I haven't had an opponent do a lot of s*** that this dude do. Mentally, it's warfare because you never know what to expect out of him."

    Why did Tommy Fury pull out?

    "I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.

    "The beginning of my camp was going so incredibly and I never expected anything to come in my way from a victory on December 18.

    "I can't express now disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year.

    "I want this fight to happen more than anything."

    Woodley has said: “I feel like I won the [first] fight.

    “But when I go back out there and beat his a** and win this fight, win by knockout, then go on to a trilogy and do it again and leave no doubt.

    "That’s the real leave no doubt… This is basically what I should have done the first time. The third time [there] will be no doubt.”

    Good evening!

    Hello there and welcome to SunSport's live coverage of Jake Paul's huge cruiserweight rematch with Tyron Woodley this evening in Tampa, Florida.

    Paul had originally been scheduled to take on influencer-cum-boxer foe Tommy Fury but the Love Island star backed out of the clash with injury.

    So Woodley, who lost via split decision back in August, has stepped in on late notice, and is gunning for revenge.

    Woodley rocked Paul to his boots in the fourth round of their bout four months ago but failed to capitalise and ultimately succumbed to the judges scorecards.

    This time, the former UFC fighter is coming for war – but so is Paul.

    "I'M F***ING HIM UP, I'M F***ING HIM UP!," Paul told Showtime's Ariel Helwani at the weigh-in yesterday.

    Elsewhere on the card, former NBA star Deion Williams is up against ex-NFL start Frank Gore, while female fighter Amanda Serrano is also in action.

    Usual Jake Paul undercard suspects J'Leon Love and Anthony Taylor, who lost to Fury back in August, are on the bill too.

    It should be a cracking night of action, so sit back, relax, set your alarms and don't miss it.

    We've got you covered through the night.
