Former UFC star Tyron Woodley is aiming to be the first person to beat social media star Jake Paul in the boxing ring when they clash in Cleveland, Ohio.
Jake Paul v Tyron Woodley Boxing Predictions & Tips
Jake Paul is not everyone’s cup of tea – mine included – but he is bringing a new audience to the world of boxing.
‘The Problem Child’ is a YouTube sensation with millions of followers, oh yes and he has a big mouth, a very big mouth. He will step into the ring for his fourth fight with an unbeaten record of 3-0.
His first two contests saw him beat another internet celebrity in AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson – and to be honest, no one was really impressed.
When he announced he was going to fight an actual fighter in Ben Askren, the whole boxing community finally believed he would get his big mouth closed. That didn’t happen as Paul knocked out the former UFC fighter in the first round.
Askren is not known for throwing bombs, so that win was not that much of a surprise. He will have his work cut out on Sunday when Tyron Woodley stands across the ring from him.
Woodley is known for his time in the UFC, where he was the UFC Welterweight Champion after beating Robbie Lawler in 2016. He went on to defend his belt on four occasions before losing the title Kamaru Usman in 2019.
‘The Chosen One’ will step in the boxing ring for the first time, and although he has strong wrestling skills, he can also throw some heavy punches. Since turning professional, Woodley has won seven MMA fights by knockout.
A lot of people want Paul to finally get his mouth shut, and although I never want to see a fighter injured in the ring, I feel he could be in trouble here.
I am backing Woodley to take the fight to Paul and not let him settle. Woodley’s aggressive style will be too much for Paul, and I am predicting a second-round knockout for the former UFC champion.
Jake Paul v Tyron Woodley: Fighter Predictions
Tyron Woodley: “I’m smart too. He’s not the only smart one. When you see [my video blog] ‘Champ Camp’ drop Saturday, when it’s too late after the weigh-ins, you’re going to see what I’ve really been doing. What you guys have seeing has been sprinkles, it’s been salt baes. When you see the destruction and the f*cking training and the mentality and the coaching and the running every single day, all different terrains, hills, speeds, adjustments, altitudes, it’s going to be too late for him to back out of this fight. And that’s why in the beginning I said I wanted a ‘no bitch out’ clause. Because I knew if he saw how hard I really punch, and how great my mind really is for this sport — any combat sport — my IQ and just the coaches, [that he might back out]. I let him think I was bouncing around. I just walked my daughter to school for her first day of first grade. I haven’t seen them in three months. I’ve been in Miami the whole time. I let him think I was in LA, Vegas, but [my team] were with me. They trained me in Miami. So, I was super focused, super locked in, and now cat’s out of the hat and this kid’s going to get his cap knocked off. And as the young kids say, no cap.”
Jake Paul: “Honestly after this camp, I said three [rounds] and now I’m thinking max two. But to be honest, something in my heart tells me that it’s going to be another one-round fight. As crazy as that sounds, I think it’s going to be a very short night for Tyron. I’m just built differently. I have something inside of me that I think is just a natural-born fighter, with natural power, you can teach a lot of things, but you can’t teach speed and you can’t teach power. I think that’s why my fights have ended so early. When those 10oz Grant gloves come on, I just grip them back, and the knuckles are at the front of the gloves. There’s no way these people’s heads can deal with this damage.”
