Dillon Danis Reveals Stunning Details on Why Tyron Woodley Was Not Allowed to Knockout Jake Paul at the Boxing Event

Published 10/19/2021, 11:10 PM EDT


Jake Paul further cemented his status as a legitimate fighter with a win over Tyron Woodley in August this year. ‘The Problem Child’ secured a unanimous decision against a man who many considered to be his toughest test to date. Paul had to overcome adversity in round four, where he was almost knocked down by ‘The Chosen One’. He used the ropes to maintain a vertical base.

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Dillon Danis made a rather bold claim as to why Tyron Woodley did not knockout Jake Paul. He said, “He is so bad. Tyron Woodley, from what I heard, had it in the contract that he is not allowed to knock out Jake Paul. I swear. That is why when he was against the ropes, he didn’t hit him. I am telling you right now it was in his contract you’re not allowed to knock him out.”

‘The Problem Child’ made his professional debut in a fight against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. Paul secured a quick knockout win and then moved on to former NBA player Nate Robinson. Robinson also did not last long as Jake Paul steamrolled yet another opponent. The win over Robinson set up a fight against former ONE Championship welterweight champion Ben Askren.

 

Paul made quick work of ‘Funky’ who was also knocked out inside the very first round. ‘The Problem Child’ received a lot of criticism for cherry-picking his opponents and only facing fighters who had little to no experience in boxing. Hence, the former Disney star decided to shut down that narrative by taking on a knockout artist in Tyron Woodley

This time around, it was not a quick one-punch knockout win for Paul. He had to dig deep and go the entire duration of the fight to secure a decision win. After the fight, although the two men agreed to get a rematch if Woodley got an ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattoo, all signs suggest that Tommy Fury will be next in line to solve the puzzle that is ‘The Problem Child’ Jake Paul.
