It was recently advertised on social media that Tyron Woodley would be fighting Jake Paul. Considering that both of these individuals have a huge fan base, the news of this boxing match is quite the hype.
Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming fight including history of each fighter, date, venue, location and streaming services to tune into.
Jake Paul is an internet celebrity, American Youtuber and now a professional boxer. Up till now, he has faced a Youtuber, a former MMA champion and an NBA player. With his fight with Tyron Woodley, a former MMA champion, he aims to take the next step in his boxing career.
Even though Jake Paul remains undefeated and he did beat Ben Askren by KO in the first round, Woodley might be his most challenging opponent by far. So Jake’s professional boxing career is riding a lot on this fight.
Jake’s confidence might be high but with Woodley, he can’t afford to be complacent. As Woodley is a professional mixed martial artist. In UFC 201 he defeated Robbie Lawler and became the UFC Welterweight Champion. He went on to retain his titles four times, impressive right!
Tyron Woodley has been a professional since 2009. Over the years, he competed at strikeforce, became a two-time Big 12 Conference and two-time All American champion. Plus he was an NCAA Divison I collegiate wrestler for Missouri Tigers. So as you can see, he has got quite the portfolio.
Even though Paul has gone 3-0 with three knockouts in his short boxing career, Woodly is by far the best. During the UFC welterweight career, Woodly had seven of 19 wins from a knockout. I think that would give you a general idea of why this competition is much awaited.

The 24-year-old Jack Paul has demonstrated some solid boxing abilities over his short tenure as a professional fighter. Nevertheless, he has yet to face a foe as skilled as Woodley.
Meanwhile, 39-year-old Woodley has had a super impressive run in MMA, including his undefeated stretch from the year 2014-18. But lately Woodley has fallen on tough times; he has had four straight losses and is no longer associated with UFC.
Both fighters have restored to media time and again to talk trash about the other. So all the heated rivalry will finally come to an end on Aug 28.
