Youtuber turned pro boxer Jake Paul states that he will hunt down Tyron Woodley and KO him to prove to the world that he is the real deal in the ring.
The celebrity boxer Jake Paul will be taking on former UFC welterweight champion by the end of this month. The duo has been engaging on social media the day one they got face to face with each other. Jake Paul is coming off a spectacular KO win over former UFC fighter Ben Askren. While Tyron Woodley was cut from the UFC after losing four back-to-back fights against top UFC welterweights. For this boxing match, Woodley has been taking boxing lessons from arguably the greatest boxer of all time Floyd Mayweather.
Jake Paul on the other hand is not intimidated by Woodley at all. Jake will be boxing with a chip on his shoulder to prove to the world that he is a real fighter. As many people consider that all his three boxing wins are against opponents who are not high-level fighters or specifically boxers. But this time Jake will be facing Woodley who is known for his striking. But Jake says he is sure that he will get the win and not only that but he will KO Woodley to prove a point to the world that he is the real deal.
“I expect him to start slow and to try and feel me out and to take me into the later rounds or at least try to,” Paul said to MMAFighting about his expectations for Woodley. “To be on his back foot, moving away, seeing my game plan. I think you’re going to see a less aggressive guy who is going to try to find my mistakes and take the fight into the later rounds. Because he probably thinks in his head that will help him because of his experience or conditioning or I don’t know. I just see that being how he’s fighting, just sort of backing up.
“I’m a real killer in there. So I’m going to try to hunt him down and get him out of there regardless if he’s coming forward,” Paul continued. “If he’s coming forward, he’s going to get walked into shots. If he’s on his back foot, I’m a hunter and I can go get him. So I can fight both ways, which is great.”
If Jake Paul gets what he desires, he won’t be stopping here as he has a long list of fighters that he wants to fight in the boxing ring. Paul vs. Woodley takes place on Aug. 29 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, airing on Showtime pay-per-view.
