JAKE PAUL insists former UFC star Tyron Woodley won’t be able to handle his ‘natural power’.
The YouTuber turned boxer will throw down with the former MMA champion in the early hours of Monday morning in his home state of Ohio.
Paul. 24, goes into his clash with the Missouri mauler on the back of three brutal knockouts of AnEson Gib, Nate Robinson and former UFC welterweight Ben Askren.
And the social media star is confident of adding Woodley’s name to his victim list, telling Sky Sports: “I’m just built different.
“I have something inside of me that I think is just a natural-born fighter, with natural power.
“You can teach a lot of things, but you can’t teach speed and you can’t teach power.
“I think that’s why my fights have ended so early.
“When those 10oz Grant gloves come on, I just grip them back, and the knuckles are at the front of the gloves.

“There’s no way these people’s heads can deal with this damage.”
Former UFC welterweight king Woodley will be the most skilled opponent Paul has faced in his brief combat sports career.
But The Problem Child doesn’t foresee the 39-year-old giving him too much trouble, adding: “Honestly after this camp, I said three [rounds] and now I’m thinking, max two.
“But to be honest, something in my heart tells me that it’s going to be another one-round fight.

“As crazy as that sounds. I think it’s going to be a very short night for Tyron.”
Paul has yet to have his chin tested by any of his opponents but expects that to change in his next outing.
He said: “My first fight with AnEsonGib, there was like a head butt and his head went straight into my nose in the clinch.
“Ben Askren hit me in the shoulder. But I actually haven’t been hit which is hilarious to me.
“Hopefully Tyron can hit me.
“I like to get hit in sparring and wake up. This is a fight, we’re really doing this.
“We’ll see what’s in store.”
