Youtube sensation Jake Paul’s next fight is none other than former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley. The question is Jake Paul be able to handle a prolific champion like Woodley in his 4th pro boxing fight? As for Woodley, he may have fought numerous times in the sport of MMA but it will be his boxing debut. The fight is scheduled to happen on August 29, 2020.
Jake Paul has had three pro boxing fights against AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren, all ended in a stoppage knockout. There is no question that Woodley might be his most dangerous fighter to ever face since he has been a knockout puncher throughout his career and is actually a combat athlete. Yes, Askren is also an MMA fighter but striking was not really his strong suit, he was known as a world-class wrestler.
Tyron Woodley has been knocking out guys in his MMA run. What is interesting is unlike Askren, Woodley certainly possesses the power to knock Paul with one punch. Woodley also has experience with ring control and going to the later rounds. He is considered as one of the great welterweights in UFC history and just went on the decline.
Although there is a reason why Paul chose Woodley to be his next opponent, mainly because he is beatable. Woodley is already past his prime and was on a 4 fight losing streak prior to getting cut from the UFC. Many would also agree that MMA striking and Boxing are completely different in terms of rules and which technique works.
