Paul vs Woodley 2 — Main Event Preview

Jake “The Problem Child” Paul (4-0) is a YouTube creator and social media celebrity turned professional boxer, but his record of impressive wins over increasingly tough opponents show he’s ready to be taken seriously. Paul has scored knockouts in three of his four fights, with Woodley being the lone exception. Paul was all set to fight pro boxer Tommy Fury this December, but an illness sidelined Fury. The show must go on, so now Jake has a rematch against the only fighter to take him the distance.

Paul performed well in his first fight against Woodley and most believe he did enough to earn the judges decision. But it was a split decision, with Woodley winning on one judges card 77-75. Paul certainly looked like he was getting all he could handle in the fourth round, taking clean shots to the head. Credit him for having the solid chin to shake it off and strike back with clean head shots of his own especially in round seven. After the fight, Woodley was pushing for a rematch and Paul said he would agree on one condition: Woodley would need to get a tattoo reading “I love Jake Paul” done first.

Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley (0-1) is a former UFC World Champion with a 19-7-1 record, and he now also has a tattoo on his middle finger professing his love for Jake Paul. This silly stuff is a far cry from the serious business of Woodley’s MMA career. He was the UFC Welterweight champ from July 2016 to March 2019, when he lost the belt to current champion Kamaru Usman. Woodley has an amazing fight resume, but he lost his last four fights.

After that career, fans might wonder why Woodley would turn to boxing against a social media star. The answer to all of your questions is money. His lifetime earnings in MMA fights is reportedly a combined $4.8 million, but CBS Sports reported that Woodley earned at least $2 million for his first fight against Jake Paul. This rematch could put his boxing earnings in two fights up near his pay for 27 MMA bouts. That’s something worth fighting for.

Jake Paul is only a small favorite to win this eight round cruiserweight fight at -260 odds.
