YOUTUBER Jake Paul has been accused of being ‘scared’ after he avoided eye contact with his next opponent Tyron Woodley.
The social media star is set for his fourth professional boxing fight when he takes on former UFC welterweight champ Woodley.
The two went face-to-face in a press conference announcing the scrap – but Paul kept losing his focus.
The 24-year-old appeared edgy and kept looking to his right, as Woodley kept his focus on his opponent.
After the head-to-head Woodley, 39, tweeted: “You’re already scared s***less.
“I don’t have to slap you. But the moment I walk away after I knock you out, the world will rejoice!”
And many people commented on the video that was shared on YouTube by Hopps Plug.
One read: This is the moment Jake knew he had picked the wrong opponent.”
Another added that ‘Tyron is going to melt Jake’, while Donovan Driggers wrote that he ‘feels bad for the kid’ as ‘all he wanted was to be like Conor McGregor’.
‘Tyron got this easy’, ‘the moment reality kicked in’ and ‘I bet Jake is going to cancel this fight’ were some of the other comments on the clip.

Another said: “Kinda feel sorry for Jake, he looked really humble and scared.”
Paul and Woodley will clash on August 28.
The blue touch paper for their fight was lit moments before Paul’s demolition of Woodley’s good friend Ben Askren in April.
The pair were involved in a heated back-and-forth in the dressing room that left Woodley fuming.
And their subsequent slanging match on social media has teed up the interesting grudge match, which, on paper, is the toughest fight of Paul’s young boxing career.
