Jake Paul stuns Tyron Woodley with split decision win to stay undefeated

Jake Paul, Tyron Woodley, Boxing

Jake Paul continues his impressive pro boxing streak with another incredible win over former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. The 24-year-old social media star-turned-professional boxer went all eight rounds with Woodley and was awarded a split-decision win in front of his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.

Jake Paul is now 5-0, ladies and gentlemen (via DAZN Boxing):

At the end of the eight-round contest, the official decision was 2-1 in favor of Paul (77-75,75-55, 78-74). Although a lot of experts were sating saying that it could’ve been a draw, Paul’s dominance over the former UFC fighter was quite evident. Paul was the more active boxer and, even though he didn’t land a ton of haymakers, was the deserving winner at the end of the much-awaited fight.

“He’s a tough opponent,” Paul said after the win (via Sporting News). “All respect to Tyron. There was a lot of sh-t talk back and forth but I respect him,”

The amount of smack talk between the two to hype up the match was quite intense. It went as far as having a crazy tattoo wager on the line between the two wherein they both agreed that the loser will have ‘I Love (winner’s name)’ tattooed after the match. Now, we’ll have to wait and see if Woodley is a man of his word and actually gets Jake’s name inked somewhere on his body.

As much as people thought that the fighting experience of Woodley would help him prevail, it clearly didn’t. Woodley was entering the match with zero professional boxing experience and Paul took advantage. Jake Paul’s length was too much for the 39-year-old as he constantly jabbed and hooked Woodley en route to another impressive victory.

There’s no other way to say it but Paul dominated Woodley in this one and him not getting the unanimous victory was quite surprising. Who’s up next for Jake Paul?
