How to watch Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley boxing live online in Australia
Things are getting ugly in the build-up to the fight between YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
Things are certainly heating up between Jake Paul and opponent Tyron Woodley.
An ugly and somewhat scary scuffle broke out after the official press conference for the fight which was filled with the usual threats of knockout and damnation. Things then turned ugly after Woodley, leaving the press conference, clashed angrily with Paul's entourage after one of them allegedly said something to his mother, who clashed with a man sitting in the audience.
Woodley, the 39-year-old former UFC welterweight champion making his boxing debut against Paul, swore repeatedly and made threats against Paul's team for several minutes in a clash which appeared to be much more serious than the usual showmanship we've come to expect.
Things eventually settled down but Woodley was certainly upset with the disrespect he believes his mother was shown. The question now is, will Paul pay for his team's disrespect come fight time? Here's how to watch.

Who will win Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley?
Paul holds a 3-0 career record so far and while he's not the next all-time great to enter the ring, he looks no slouch. Woodley is the second consecutive former UFC fighter Paul will face, after he knocked out former Woodley training partner Ben Askren in the first round of their bout in April.
Unlike Paul's previous opponents, Woodley has the capacity to throw knockout blows, something Paul will need to use his height and reach advantages to avoid.
This is Woodley's first professional fight but he enters the win with a proud combat record. Woodley retired from the Octagon earlier this year with a record of 19 wins, 7 losses and 1 draw, after 4 straight losses at the end of his career.
Paul is tipped to win the fight.
Paul, who has more than 20 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, is set to earn upwards of US$2 million for the fight, while Woodley is expected to pocket around $1 million.
