Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 Fight Results, Highlights: “The Problem Child” Stuns Woodley Cold


Jake Paul’s fifth foray into professional boxing created nothing but clinch and boos from the crowd in Saturday’s rematch with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. And then the YouTube star and social media influencer delivered the boom.

Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) faked with a blow to the body and came over with a flush right hand to knock out Woodley and sparked a wild celebration inside Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. . The Showtime pay-per-view contest saw Paul, 24, leaving no doubt in a way he didn’t in August when he hung on for a split decision over Woodley in their premiere meeting.

The cruiserweight bout was contested at a 192-pound weight and survived a late opponent change as Woodley, 39, replaced Tommy Fury, the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, on notice of less than two weeks.

” And now ? And now ? And now ? Paul yelled into the camera as his arm was raised by referee Christopher Young, who called off the fight at 2:12 of Round 6.

The arrival could not have come at a better time for Paul as the rematch had exclusively turned into a low-performing outfit contest, very similar to the worst moments of their first meeting. But as soon as Paul landed the final blow, he returned to his brash manners by hopping on top of the angle tensioner and rejoicing wildly with his older brother and fellow influencer turned boxer Logan Paul.

“It’s as real as it gets, just like my right hand,” Paul said. “I told you I was going to fuck him.”

Paul was the busiest boxer throughout and was leading on all three scorecards (49-46, 48-46, 49-46) at the time of the stoppage. Paul and Woodley both landed the same number of total shots, according to CompuBox, at age 43, but Paul managed to land 41% of his powerful shots.

Even with Paul’s exit, he joined Woodley in being far too willing to rely on the clinch, which slowed the action down and forced the crowd to boo regularly. Paul overcame this, as he cut his forehead in Round 4 due to a stray elbow from Woodley, to force the outright victory.
