Jake Paul already has a win over 5x UFC champion Tyron Woodley under his name. However, the social media celeb-turned boxer needs to repeat it on December 18 before finally leaping towards his other plans. The re-match between Paul and Woodley became relevant after Tommy Fury walked away from his scheduled scrap against Paul.

Woodley roped in as an immediate replacement and looks confident about vanquishing ‘The Problem Child’. But that will not be an easy task. Following a failed pro-boxing debut, Tyron Woodley will re-enter the ring in just 4 months. Meanwhile, Paul had been preparing to battle a pro-boxer in Tommy Fury for the first time in his career.

Having beaten Woodley in August, Jake Paul knows what he needs to fix in his game. The same goes for Tyron Woodley. But several factors cite Jake Paul to be a favorable fighter. His youth, skill, and blueprint of success from the first fight can benefit ‘The Problem Child’. That said, a second win over Woodley can see a serious surge in Paul’s boxing career.

Jake Paul has a decision to make on his boxing career

Per Paul, he envisions himself becoming a world champion boxer someday. His plans on the sport reflect the same. Well, Paul is already a prizefighter and spinning more money than several professionals. He has also called out several A-listed combatants like Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez. While most of them have ignored him, Paul can enrich his legacy even better before going through the toughest challenges.

Jake Paul is at the early stage of his career. His 4 wins have also come against a social media star, a retired NBA player, and two former MMA champions. Therefore, there is still a long way before ‘The Problem Child’ can put himself in the top-tier conversation.

Who is Jake Paul fighting next after Tyron Woodley?

Jake Paul has a lot to prove against Woodley and cannot take him lightly. The former UFC champion almost stopped Jake Paul  with a thunderous shot in round four of their first fight. A similar danger is knocking on the doors of Paul on December 18. But let’s believe, ‘The Problem Child’ surpasses Woodley in-ring. He can immediately work on securing the Tommy Fury fight.

Per reports, ‘TNT’ is interested in the fight and is looking to return after recovering from his rib injury. That is the fight that makes sense when Paul becomes 5-0 as a professional. Besides, Jake Paul has also claimed that his manager is working to secure the Conor McGregor fight at any cost. Although it can take years to happen, it’s still a valid fight on Paul’s radar. Now everything depends on how he performs against Woodley.
