Unretires From Boxing!!!
… 1 Day After Retiring

Jake Paul‘s retirement lasted a whopping 25 hours … ’cause the YouTube superstar-turned-boxer says he’s officially back in the fight game again.
“Updated status: I’m coming out of retirement,” Paul tweeted on Tuesday.
Hey, we tried to warn ya — there was a super slim chance Jake was actually retiring for good when he claimed he was walking away from the sport on Monday … especially since he’s poised to get a FAT paycheck from the Tyron Woodley fight.
Just as expected … Paul is back.
Remember, “retiring” really doesn’t mean much in boxing and MMA — a ton of guys have gotten back in the ring after calling it quits.
The legend Muhammad Ali retired a couple times … and George Foreman and Randy Couture are among others who stepped away before changing their mind.
More recently, Conor McGregor has retired at least 3 times in his career … and that may very well be the guy Jake is channeling with this latest publicity stunt.
Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting.
Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!

Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you!

Jake’s quick return now opens the door for a Woodley rematch … which Paul claims could happen as long as Tyron holds his end of the deal and gets the “I Love Jake Paul” tattoo.
Welcome back, Jake.
