‘I’m back,’ says Jake Paul as he teases return to boxing on August 13 with potential fight against touted Tommy Fury

Jake Paul made a simple and concise announcement amid talk of his return to the boxing ring: “I’m back.”

The YouTuber, who is building a high-profile career in the sport, boasts a 5-0 professional record – his last fight against a devastating knockout of former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.

It’s unclear who Paul will fight next, but it looks like it’s happening on August 13

It’s unclear who his next opponent is, however, former UFC champion Anderson Silva and Tommy Fury are said to be in contention.

Paul made his boxing debut in 2020 when he stopped fellow social media star AnEsonGib before knocking out former basketball player Nate Robinson.

The 25-year-old then took over with retired MMA star Ben Askren.

Paul was taken eight rounds by Woodley before being forced to face him again after Fury was forced to pull out of their fight due to illness.

The second fight ended in stunning fashion as a vicious right hook from Paul sent Woodley to the canvas.

Since that fight, Paul had been focused on promoting teammate Amanda Serrano’s undisputed clash with Katie Taylor, securing the Puerto Rican a seven-figure purse.
