However, none of Paul’s opponents had ever boxed earlier than preventing Paul and so they all got here from completely different athletic backgrounds.
Woodley is essentially the most harmful opponent so far, regardless of his current file. He’s misplaced his final three UFC video games and he is did not win a single spherical within the course of.
Still, he was a dominant welterweight champion in his heyday and he proved he had knockout energy in his fists.
talkSPORT 2 spoke to UFC commentator Jon Anik this week and we took a deep dive into Woodley’s odds against the YouTuber turned skilled boxer.

“He’s not fighting a professional boxer,” Anik informed Fight Night Extra. “Woodley will not be knowledgeable boxer.
“We had Din Thomas, Tyron’s longtime chief nook, on our podcast yesterday and he said he thought this was going to be nice as a result of all Tyron ever wished to do within the combat camp is definitely placed on 10-ounce gloves.
“So in the event you go together with that line of considering, I do know Tyron goes to do the trick and he’s going to do the best job. But he is not knowledgeable boxer.
“Say what you need about Jake Paul and Logan Paul, they’re conditioned athletes with reliable boxing aspirations.
Tyron Woodley is likely one of the finest welterweight champions of all time
“I really like that Jake Paul is definitely enjoying against somebody who has reliable boxing chops. But the explanation T-Wood is the -150 favourite and never -300 as a 3/1 favourite is as a result of Tyron Woodley is 0-0 as knowledgeable boxer.
“I believe there are lots of layers on this combat, there are lots of questions when it comes to the respective cardiovascular techniques.
“If you’re asking me for a prediction right now, and I know you’re not, I’d go for Tyron Woodley.”
“But I would say those who reject or dishonor the chances of Jake Paul, I don’t think they paid attention to what he did.”
Jake’s brother Logan simply did eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather and the couple are making some huge cash internet hosting these crossover occasions.
One of the nice sights of preventing is that somebody knocks out one of many Paul brothers; Will Woodley be the primary?
