This Sunday, YouTube star Jake Paul is set to take on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a boxing match. The two had their press conference today, and as with most public events involving one or more of the Paul brothers, wild things quickly followed.
During the press conference, a member of Jake Paul’s group got into a heated confrontation with Woodley’s mother, Deborah. J’Leon Love, Paul’s boxing trainer allegedly started talking trash to Deborah Woodley.
Chairs were knocked over and the pushing and shoving match soon began. Security and police were needed in order to separate the various groups and proceed with the shoot.
The intense scene didn’t end there. Tyron Woodley had some choice words for Love after the photo shoots were done.
Here’s the fracas between Team Paul and Team Woodley. This could have gone much worse. Thankfully not but it was pretty damn tense for a minute there pic.twitter.com/EnKXkI8abg

Tyron Woodley was seen yelling at J’Leon Love as he was escorted away. Woodley called Love out and demanded he apologize for talking to his mother.
Love denied saying anything to her though.

Tyron Woodley has had Jake Paul squarely in his sights ever since Paul knocked out Ben Askren in a boxing match this past March. Woodley and Love had actually traded verbal barbs before, the night of that fight itself.
Askren is one of Woodley’s long-time training partners. And Woodley didn’t take kindly to seeing Askren get beaten like that.
A fight between the YouTube star and the former UFC champion was quickly put together. And they’ll square off this Sunday.
