Paul, in his above tweet, did not mention whether he wishes to face these names inside the ring or he idolizes them. However, since he included the UFC supremo in this list, it’s safe to say Paul definitely has something cooking in his mind.

Last Saturday, Paul performed admirably and made a statement with his win over Woodley. Coming into this fight, some people considered The Problem Child’ an underdog. Many fans even expected the fight to finish early and Woodley to win the fight via a finish.

However, Paul knew what he was supposed to do, and he ended up landing an incredible punch to KO ‘The Chosen One’.

This win put Jake Paul in a tremendous spot and fans’ perception towards him changed unquestionably.

Jake Paul – A highly improved boxer

In his first fight against Woodley, Jake Paul lacked stamina in the later rounds and he had no power left. This time though, he came in with a sustainable approach and he let Woodley dictate the pace of the fight initially.

Paul knew Woodley would commit a mistake and he’ll capitalize on that. As a result, when ‘The Chosen One’ dropped his guard in round 6, Paul immediately unveiled his best punch.

‘The Problem Child’ proved his worth that night by showing off some slick boxing prowess. That said, Paul is on the verge of improvements and he’ll only look to go big from hereon.
