Tyron Woodley will be looking forward to ending Jake Paul’s unbeaten spree for the most anticipated bout scheduled for August 28th. Speaking to ESPN’s journalist, Ariel Helwani, both fighters have affirmed that the date is already set, and the contracts are all signed.
Jake Paul, who has just gone into the ring three times, boasts a winning spree without any defeats so far. His last first-round knockout win against Ben Askren come on April 17th this year at the Mercedes Benz stadium in Atalanta to mark his third sensational win.
On the other hand, Tyron Woodley, who isn’t a boxer per se, but more of a wrestler, has also won the UFC welterweight title and will be challenging the Youtube sensation as the former UFC welterweight champion. Woodley, 39, describes this fight against Jake Paul as one of the easiest fight schedules in his career and portrays a lot of confidence to break Paul’s jaw within the first round.
“Easiest fight of my career and biggest purse of my career all in one night,”
“Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can’t wait to shut this b—h up. This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.” Woodley told Helwani.
Despite being portrayed as the underdog by many betting sites, Woodley feels confident about knocking out Jake Paul in what will seem like his biggest sport paycheck in his career following the massive anticipated payout of the pay-per-view regarding the weight of this match.
