The phrase “Jake Paul Boxing retirement” is trending all over the internet.
The Problem Child took to his personal Twitter to initially drop this news himself.

The authenticity of this gesture to hang up the gloves remains to be seen. As it could be another yet another permutation of Paul emulating the many times retired Conor McGregor.
The Youtuber/ Disney star bested Tyron Woodley via split decision in a cruiserweight affair that went the full eight rounds. This transpired on Sunday, August 29th from Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
Jake Paul overcame some rough spots in the bout. He was held up by the ropes shortly after being cracked by The Chosen One in the fourth frame of their fight.
That was Paul’s only pro bout to go the distance and snapped a four-fight streak of finishes. A stretch that dated back to Paul’s lone amateur boxing bout.
He is now 4-0 as a pro in the sweet science following his victory over the former UFC welterweight champion. Woodley is now 0-1 as a professional boxer but earned some moral victories outside of the ring following the fistic fireworks.

Jake Paul Boxing retirement
The polarizing pugilist addressed Woodley in the post-fight speech. With the two seemingly agreeing to a rematch pending Tyron Woodley getting an “I Love Jake Paul” tattoo on his body.
The 24-year-old secured the hometown victory and called out a myriad of combatants in the post-fight press conference like Tommy Fury, Conor McGregor, and Nate Diaz.
Showtime pay per view buys seem to indicate that this late-Summer show was a massive success. A well-rounded card beyond the ballyhooed main event with names like Daniel Dubois, the aforementioned Tomm Fury, and Amanda Serrano also commanding the attention of the viewers.
Do you think Jake Paul retires now or does he fight again in the Boxing ring?
