Jake Paul was also set to face off against Tommy Fury on December 18th after months of build up, but then Tomy Fury had to pull out of the match at the last minute, which led to a lot of frustration and disbelief. Thankfully, Tyron Woodley accepted a rematch on short notice and will now take Tommy Fury’s place in the boxing match later on this month.
Jake Paul recently spoke in an interview, where he admitted he had dark thoughts about Logan Paul’s suicide forest incident in Japan, which brought him a lot of notoriety.
There was a point where everything went downhill for the Paul brothers. It was after my brother’s Japan incident, where no-one wanted to work with us. Every brand I was affiliated with dropped me, I wasn’t even the one who filmed the video. It was just by way of association because my brother filmed in the suicide forest.
My life was pretty much ruined. YouTube demonetized me, every brand dropped me,” Paul continued. “I had a $10 million deal with Target that was going to live, they dropped me. I’m sitting there at 21, I lose basically all my income because of something my brother did, I’m blacklisted. Everything in my life was falling apart. Dark thoughts come into your head of like ‘I don’t wanna be here on earth anymore.’

“At the time, I was just looking for hope, so I started going to church. Start talking to adults who would have any sort of advice,” Paul explained. “The media wants to see me fail, and I’m not gonna give them what they want. I made the decision to wake up every day and change my attitude. I started telling myself every single day when I woke up in my bed I’m happy and I’m gonna be happier next week than I am this week. I would just tell myself these things, and it helped. I just made that decision to not give up.”
