Jake Paul last fought the former UFC welterweight, Ben Askren. ‘The Problem Child’ slept ‘Funky’ inside the very first round and went 3-0 in his career. However, fans raised questions about his credentials as he boxed against a grappler. Hence, to respond to these doubters, Jake Paul finally set himself up for a fight against the ex-UFC welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley.

The latter’s concluding years in the promotion weren’t good by any means (lost to Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, Vicente Luque, and Gilbert Burns). However, in his prime, ‘The Chosen One’ outclassed many opponents with his clean and powerful striking.

Hence, Jake Paul ‘The Problem Child’ couldn’t have asked for a better opponent, as Woodley is himself hungry to make some statements by winning against the 24-year-old.

The Ohio native will walk in with an unprecedented advantage in this fight, as he has 3 solid wins (AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren) inside the ring.

Woodley, on the other hand, has no pro-boxing experience. Hence, this might put him in a vulnerable spot against his rival, who will have the edge.
