Jake Paul and his action

Paul, 3-0, has attained all of his wins via stoppage. He currently holds a 100% KO ratio. Besides, he has already showcased his supremacy amongst fighters of his status, beating a fellow YouTuber, a retired NBA player, and MMA elite inside the squared circle. ‘The Problem Child’ debuted against Ali Eson Gib in 2019, a fight that ended with Paul knocking out Gib in the first round.

Everyone thought the Cleveland native would choose to face social media stars after the win. But Paul had other plans. He appeared next in the undercard of Tyson vs Jones Jr. and took on Nate Robinson. Robinson was a former basketball athlete. Many predicted him to overpower the social media star.

But Paul scored a highlight reel KO in round two and made a massive up-gradation on his career. He battled Ben Askren in a Triller main-event on April 27, 2021 next. Following two losses in the UFC, Askren came with all his stellar achievements in the MMA world.

However, with almost zero striking skills, he fell prey to Paul in the maiden round. ‘Unfortunately, ‘Funky’ had to depart with a KO loss in his pro boxing debut.

Meanwhile, Paul’s next opponent, Tyron Woodley, is a top-tier striker known for his vicious KOs in the UFC. So, beating him will clearly be a massive achievement for Jake Paul. Standing at 2” taller with a 2” reach advantage, Paul also has experience of 3 fights before Woodley, who will debut in the boxing world on Sunday night.
