Jake Paul, like the last time, did not begin this fight well. In fact, he only remained on the defensive mode, barely trading any punches with the former UFC elite.

Woodley began dictating the pace of the fight, citing ‘The Problem Child’s approach. He clashed heads with Paul, which later opened a cut on the latter’s head. In the later rounds, ‘The Chosen One’ got some success, as he could land his overhand right on the Ohio native.

With the momentum Woodley was in, it seemed as if he’d sweep off a win if the fight went to the judges. However, Paul stunned everyone in round 6 with a fierce KO shot.

The 24-year-old waited for Woodley to drop his guard, and he came on top with an overhand right. This garnered reactions from Ryan Garcia and many other notable pro boxers.

Ryan Garcia couldn’t resist praising Jake Paul

Garcia and Paul are the best of friends, and the two seem close to each other of late. ‘King Ry’ even trained the YouTuber once, and he put a video of the same on his channel.

That said, on his special win, the young gun praised the Ohio native on Twitter after his recent tweet.
