Alright fight fans and odd man out faithful we are in for something special tonight! Youtube sensation Jake Paul is fighting a world-class former world champion MMA fighter Tyron Woodley. This is one you don’t want to miss!
Jake has the mechanics and the build of a boxer. Coming in with the height and reach advantage. The patient Tyron Woodley may remain that way through much of this bout. I expect some quality exchanges. However, in the later rounds is where Woodley can excel. In the Mayweather fight Paul’s older brother tired late. After a lot of clinching Paul was able to make it to a decision. Don’t be surprised if this fight heads that same route. We have yet to see Jake Paul fight a real boxer. It has been the likes of Nate Robinson and Ben Askren. Two guys who were never known to be heavy handed. Prior to that it was other youtubers he squared up with.
We all can agree on one thing; we want a fun fight! I believe Woodley will look a little green inside the boxing ring at first when he cannot circle the same way an mma cage allowed him to over the years. Jake Paul has been in here and will look comfortable early. That is when Woodley can find himself in trouble.
Overall I see the power being equal. I see the motivations being similar. Both guys wanting to lengthen their careers and add another win to their resumes. This fight should be near a pick’em but we have some skewed lines across the books.
