Watch Jake Paul throw combinations on pads and in sparring for Tyron Woodley fight with YouTuber hailed by Stipe Miocic

JAKE PAUL offered fans a glimpse into his training camp with footage of the YouTuber sparring and hitting the pads.

The social media star faces ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley on Sunday, August 29 in his home of Cleveland.

After a press tour in Los Angeles and then Ohio, Paul returned to Puerto Rico to continue preparations for what will be his fourth professional fight.

And in a video uploaded online, 24-year-old landed some eye-catching combinations on his sparring partner.

In particular, a uppercut and left hook combination won praise from his trainer, former cruiserweight contender BJ Flores.

A separate clip of Paul on the pads with Flores in Miami saw the American celebrity firing off quick combinations.

Paul comes into the fight 3-0, all by knockout, but has so far faced only limited opposition.

He has beaten internet rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and most recently retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Paul knocked out Askren – a training partner of Woodley’s – in the first round in April.

And it left former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic , 38, impressed, as he hailed his fellow Cleveland native.

How Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley compare ahead of their boxing match

Miocic told Paul: “Someone asked me about you in an interview and I said, ‘He’s getting better’ and that was scary.

“He’s new to this sport and he’s getting that good that fast, and when you fought Ben I thought Ben was tough, he’s fought the best and never really got knocked out.

“But it’s a fight and you were getting better, and look what happened.”
