Youtuber turned professional boxer Jake Paul picked up a split decision victory against Tyron Woodley last night. Although Woodley landed the more powerful shots, the former UFC champion wasn’t active enough. Paul was able to outland Woodley 71-54 in total punches, as Woodley looked for the right moment to counter.

This is also the first time Jake Paul has gone past the four-minute mark in a fight. The 24-year-old showed signs of fatigue but was able to keep Woodley at bay with his jab, for the most part. In the end, two judges scored the fight 77-75 and 78-74 for Paul, while the third judge scored it 77-75 in favor of Tyron Woodley.

In the post-fight interview, Tyron Woodley called for an immediate rematch, as he felt he’d done enough to earn the victory.
However, ‘The Problem Child’ has stated he’d only consider the rematch if Woodley honors their pre-fight bet. Which involved the loser of the fight getting a tattoo with the winner’s name. And now it seems like Woodley is ready to step up and pay the price for a rematch with Paul.

“Thanks for all the support. Really appreciate the love, lets talk. Ropes can keep you up and NO Drug test? TF they take my pee for, in the back. Run it back! Dave Chappelle said so! Shit seem fishy in Cleveland. Let’s run it back in St’Louis. 

Furthermore, Woodley has shared a statement on Instagram bringing up the lack of stringent drug testing before the fight, referring to the entire event as ‘fishy’. And the 39-year-old would prefer to have the rematch in his hometown instead. It seems like Woodley is adamant for another opportunity to box the former Disney star. But with this win granting Jake Paul access to bigger names, there is a strong chance of Woodley getting sidelined.

What’s next for Tyron Woodley?

A former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley made the move to boxing after a four-fight skid in the UFC. Following his split decision loss to Jake Paul, the former champion is looking for the rematch as of now. If the two fighters cannot come to an agreement for the rematch, Woodley will have to begin his search for a potential dance partner.   

At 39-years-old time is of the essence for Woodley. Apart from looking for potential opponents, Woodley will also need to work on his volume as puncher. Often, the veteran finds it tough to let his hands go, even when he has his opponents badly hurt. Perhaps a little more work with Floyd Mayweather will make that possible.
