Youtuber turned professional boxer Jake Paul claims he is now a “retired boxer” after his 8-round, split-decision victory against UFC fighter Tyron Woodley Sunday night.
The 24-year old Paul, now 4-0 in professional fights, made the surprising announcement via Twitter Monday night.
It’s unclear how serious the claim is given Paul’s history of drama and antics, and given the massive paycheck he receives from each fight.
After his victory Sunday, Paul teased a potential future bout with notorious former UFC Champion Conor McGregor who have clashed on social media before.

It did not seem like retirement was on his mind then.
“We’re on the path to a lot bigger fights, I’m salivating too because I’m just getting warmed up,” Paul said, via MMA Junkie.
