Youtube star Jake Paul will not spend too much time away from the boxing ring, according his head trainer and retired fighter, BJ Flores.

Paul returned to the ring last month, when he headlined a Showtime Pay-Per-View event in his hometown of Cleveland.

He picked up his biggest win to date, with eight round split decision over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.

Back in April, Paul blasted out MMA veteran Ben Askren in a single round.

The victory raised Paul's unbeaten pro record to 4 wins with 3 of them by knockout. 

Flores expects him to return to the ring sooner than later.

"He won't take that much time off," Flores assured to The Mirror. "The guy is obsessed, he loves boxing.

"He won't take much time off at all, he'll want to be back sooner than [next year], and we really need to. We've got a lot of momentum right now, a lot of things we can improve on and work on, we just need to get back to the drawing board.

"It's obviously a work in progress, so we need to keep working and stay focused, that's kind of our mentality in our camp. We're always getting better, we're always improving, and we don't feel like we can afford to take months off and sit around."

At the moment, Paul's next opponent is unknown.

Flores indicates that it won't be a rematch with Woodley, who believes that he performed well enough to deserve a second crack at Paul.

"Nobody wants to see it," Flores said. "It was a good fight, six rounds to two, it wasn't really that close but Tyron was tough.

"I give him credit for that, he got his payday and now he's trying to say all kind of stuff but it's just excuses. I always said before the fight that there better be no excuses after the fight, I don't want to hear about it. Floyd Mayweather was training with him, Gerald Tucker, Pedro Diaz all those great people in his corner, all the work, all the sacrifices. That's cool but no excuses after the fight though, because I knew Jake was going to beat him."
