Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley: UK fight time, prediction, purse and odds


Controversial YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul made light work of his previous opponent hailing from the world of mixed martial arts (MMA), with former Bellator and ONE welterweight champion and ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren knocked out inside two minutes of the first round of their short-lived contest on a frankly bizarre night in Atlanta back in April.

That emphatic victory saw ‘The Problem Child’ improve his boxing record to 3-0, following similar destructions of ex-NBA player Nate Robinson and fellow YouTube personality AnEsonGib.

While not facing a professional boxer yet amid plenty of the usual war of words with the likes of Tommy Fury, Paul faces a clear step up against Woodley.

‘The Chosen One’ is a former UFC welterweight champion who successfully defended that title four times between 2016-19, beating the likes of Robbie Lawler, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson, Demian Maia and Darren Till.

However, Woodley, now 39, was later dethroned by the dominant Kamaru Usman and also lost each of his next three UFC bouts against Gilbert Burns, Colby Covington and Vincente Luque.
