His ascension to the top of the boxing world has been quick and something that has taken many people by surprise. Paul takes on his biggest test to date in former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley next week. However, ‘The Problem Child’ has his eyes set on targets bigger than Woodley.

Tyron Woodley is winless in his last four fights. His last win in the UFC was in September 2018. However, Woodley still remains a threat and has serious one-punch knockout power that he has displayed time and time again.
