However, ESPN’s Mike Coppinger recently reported that both Paul and Woodley will be tested for PEDs after their fight. The tests couldn’t be conducted earlier by the Ohio Commission because of a lack of kits. But that has been rectified since and the fighters will have to go through the mandatory testing processes.

Paul is looking to extend his unbeaten run to 4-0 with a win tonight. ‘The Problem Child’ knocked out Woodley’s friend and training partner, Ben Askren, in his last fight. He will hope to replicate the same sort of performance against ‘The Chosen One’ too. But, one can expect him to be in for a tougher test as Woodley, unlike Askren, possesses genuine striking skills.

To add to that, Woodley also possesses vicious knockout power in his hands as well. So, he will look to use those traits to his advantage when he squares off against ‘The Problem Child’ tonight. If he can put an end to the new hype train of the boxing world, remains to be seen.
