Jake Paul admitted earlier this week he was feeling the effects of his boxing matches with four bouts under his belt and a rematch against Tyron Woodley on the docket.

Paul said Tuesday in an interview on “In Depth With Graham Bensinger” he was suffering from memory loss and slurred speech and said boxing is part of the reason.

“The doctor told me there’s a lack of blood flow from the concussions I had when I would play football, into certain areas of my brain, one of them being the frontal lobe, which is partially memory,” he said. “After my first year of boxing, I went back and it was worse.”

Paul will face Woodley for a second time Saturday after Tommy Fury dropped out of the fight for a medical reason. Paul beat Woodley in the summer via split decision.
