Bomb Threat At Paul Vs. Woodley Fight, Caller Said 17 Devices Planted

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley bomb threat after ‘police told 17 explosives planted in arena’

An hour before Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley took the ring Sunday night, a man contacted police and said he planted 17 bombs around the arena and was going to blow the place up.

According to a police incident report, cops got a call from a person claiming to be from Afghanistan around 10:15 PM … stating he placed pipe bombs underneath the stage, in the bathrooms and under seats at Rocket Mortgage Field House in Cleveland, where the fight went down.

The man — who said the bombs were going to go off in minutes — told cops he was targeting non-believers, who he believed should be killed. He told police Paul was a non-believer.

Police were told the bombs were going to go off within minutes, with the caller claiming they had planted the devices an hour and a half before the event was due to start.

The report adds that the caller told authorities to evacuate the arena, which was held around 16,000 fans, because the bombs were about to be detonated.

A bomb unit was dispatched, with specially-trained dogs brought in to sweep the building.

No bombs were found, suggesting the call was an empty threat.

Thankfully, it seems it was an empty threat or terrible prank … ’cause no explosive devices were located.

A police spokesperson told us no arrests have been made … and the investigation is ongoing.

As for the action in the ring, Paul beat Woodley via split decision. The fighters seemed to agree to a rematch — assuming Woodley gets a tattoo that says “I Love Jake Paul” on his leg.
