Tyron Woodley's trainer has made an eye-opening revelation regarding one of the most talked about issues involving the knockout loss to Jake Paul.
The rematch between YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley is one of the biggest fights that happened in the past year. The fight ended with Paul clearly knocking out Woodley with a hard right hook that landed straight to the former MMA champ's chin.
However, rumors soon began swirling around claiming it was fixed as Paul apparently performed a “secret hand signal” to inform Woodley that he's about to throw the knockout punch.
Lifting the lid on the subject, Woodley's trainer Din Thomas confessed that his fighter was not even aware that he just got knocked out cold the moment he regain consciousness.
“I think [Woodley] he went through a series of different emotions. I remember standing inside the ring as soon as it happened and he was like ‘no, no, when do I go back out?’ He didn’t even know, right when it happened, he thought it was in between rounds and I’m sure he was probably wondering why everybody was standing inside the ring. He didn’t even know at that moment. When I got out of the ring, I really just sat there, just in disbelief. That is really what the beginning was disbelief, you couldn’t believe that just happened,” Thomas revealed via Boxing Scene.
“Then when we got to the back everyone on the team was disappointed like I can’t just believe that happened,” he continued.
Thomas went on to admit that the entire team was truly “disappointed” but Woodley's “demeanor” changed after he saw the little girl who is daughter of “the guy that runs High Rollerz.”
