Jake Paul registered the biggest win of his career against Tyron Woodley a few days back. The YouTuber turned boxer, like most of the times, was a heavy underdog in this fight, and no one really expected him to get past Woodley in this rematch. However, Paul stunned everyone with his sensational one-punch KO win to raise his stature in the sport.

But, with that epic win, there were some vehement reactions coming in from the fans on ‘The Problem Child’s performance. Many thought this fight was rigged and the young gun staged his bout with the ex-UFC elite.

However, Joe Rogan recently came in for Jake Paul’s defense in his latest statement. He said, ”Meanwhile all the casuals are thinking it’s fake.”

“They were saying there’s a tell, because he moves his hand, and he’s like saying here, here comes a big right hand. I’m a hit ya.”

In this rematch, Jake Paul didn’t start off well as the last time. In fact, with his approach, he let Woodley dictate the pace of the fight. ‘The Problem Child’ only kept some movements around the squared circle and he just looked to dodge Woodley’s power-packed blows.

Jake Paul probably knew, in a quest to knock him out, Woodley will commit that one mistake. Finally, in round 6, the former UFC welterweight champ dropped his guard, letting Paul land his best-ever right hand.

With that, Woodley got floored, and Jake Paul raised many eyebrows, including some biggies like Rogan and more.

Teddy Atlas too praised Jake Paul for his performance

A few days back, Teddy Atlas, on his podcast, applauded Jake Paul for his win, thus hitting out at his naysayers simultaneously.

He said, “But to his credit, where he has gotten advanced a little bit, where people probably don’t give him credit, is that he’s gotten to a place where it is six round of an ugly fight he could still be calm enough.”

He further added, “That was a professional move. Lot of the other ones weren’t that great earlier in the night. That was a professional move.”
