Jake Paul has been backed to 'beat the s***' out of Tyron Woodley in a bold 'four-round knockout' prediction from his coach BJ Flores.
The YouTube star faces his fourth professional fight in the boxing ring when he takes on former UFC welterweight champion Woodley in the early hours of Monday morning, as he looks to extend his undefeated record in the early stages of his highly-scrutinised career.
His previous fights have all taken place against 'non-boxers' including YouTube star AnEson Gib, Nate Robinson and former UFC star Ben Askren, but Woodley is considered the toughest examination of Paul's boxing skills yet.
And his coach Flores had predicted that Paul will knock his opponent out 'inside four rounds' and if the fight does go the distance that the YouTube star will 'beat the s***' out of Woodley.
“We are not saying we great because we beat the last three guys, but if we beat Tyron we can start saying we are doing okay," Flores told The W.A.D.E Concept.
“I tell you Tyron better start moving away, because although he is a former world champion, he is so out of his depth.
“I don’t care how much of a boxer he is, there is not a f****** thing that he can do to change the outcome of this fight.
“My prediction is that we go don’t beyond the fifth round with Jake getting the knockout, but if we do we will still beat the s*** out of him”.
Paul has also himself boldly predicted that he will take out Woodley 'in two rounds' despite his previous statement that he would stop Woodley after two stanzas.
But a former sparring partner and current UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal has predicted that Woodley will knock Paul 'the f*** out'.
" I was wrong. I don’t know s*** about fighting, right? But, chances are Woodley‘s gonna knock him the f**k out," Masvidal said on The MMA Hour.
"He’s good enough of an athlete, and he’s good enough of an athlete to make his money with his hands and knock people the f*** out.
"I know Jake’s never been in there with a guy like that – That’s explosive, is a good athlete, and has a ton of experience over. So, (if) Jake wins, f***ing wild. My hat’s off to him.
“We (Jake Paul and I) didn’t spar. I saw him hit the pads. I think I’ve seen him lightly sparring with guys.

"That being said, I’ve also seen Woodley when he’s hitting pads, when he’s sparring at a hundred, and when he’s fighting at a hundred. And I do the math. Woodley wins, man. Woodley just wins, you know.”
Paul has promised to renew his rivalry with British YouTube star KSI later down the line as he threatened 'to pummel his head' after naming his boxing hit-list.
The 24-year-old named his potential opponents that he would like to face during his career which included UFC star Nate Diaz, who has responded by calling him one of 'the Paul sisters'.
