Jake Paul knocks Tyron Woodley out cold in 6th round in anticipated rematch
It was the shot heard around the world when Jake Paul winded up and knocked out former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, winning their rematch in Tampa Florida. Throughout the fight it was sloppy and full of clinches until Paul landed the big shot.
“I told you I was going to (expletive) him up!’’ Paul said. “This guy is going to (expletive) him up!” Paul, the 24-year-old YouTube celebrity, remains undefeated as a pro boxer. He improved to 5-0 while Woodley, the 39-year-old former UFC champion, fell to 0-2. Woodley was a last minute replacement for Tommy Fury. The two Paul and Woodley had unfinished business. On Aug. 29, Paul beat Woodley by split decision in their first fight, setting up the rematch billed as “Leave No Doubt.’’
The knockout was beautiful. Jake faked to the body, forcing Tyron to drop his hands. Then Paul came over the top with a right that landed flush on Woodley’s ear, sending him falling to the canvas. Paul was the busier boxer throughout and led on all three scorecards (49-46, 48-46, 49-46) at the time of the stoppage. Both Paul and Woodley landed the same amount of total punches, according to CompuBox, at 43 but Paul was able to land 41% of his power punches. After the fight Paul was more boisterous than ever calling out UFC legends Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. Both were seated ringside, and urged them to get out of their current fight deals with "Daddy Dana" White, the UFC president. Whether you like or hate Jake Paul he acknowledged his night by saying "This has to be the greatest moment in my life, look at the year I just had," Paul said. "This is unprecedented. Four huge PPVs in 12 months and I knocked out everyone.”
