Social Media sensation Jake Paul and former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley are set for a Showtime pay-per-view on the 18th of December at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The event was initially supposed to be headlined by Jake Paul and Tommy Fury,  the younger brother of Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury but just a weel before the fight, Fury pulled out with an injury which gave an opportunity to Woodley to step in for his rematch which he has been asking since his unanimous decision loss to Paul earlier this year.

Jake Paul as of now is undefeated in his boxing career so far and has doled out some impressive knockouts in his short time in the sport. His first victory came against his fellow Youtuber Deji in which he secured a KO in round five and then followed it up with a first-round TKO win in their rematch. Paul then faced Nate Robinson in which he got the victory via a second-round KO establishing him as a threat in the sport. He then took on Former Bellator champion Ben Askren and knocked him out after just 1:59 of round 1. His most recent fight was against Tyron Woodley, in which he took the former UFC welterweight champion to 10 rounds and won the fight via decision making the most impressive win of his career. With that, his professional record is now 5-0.

As for the UFC legend, his life in combat sports started with being a wrestler who then went on to win UFC gold in the welterweight division and retired from the promotion with an impressive record of 19-7-1. But what hurt him the most in his combat sports career was his loss to a Youtuber. After that fight, Woodley was so desperate for a rematch that he even got inked with a tattoo that said “I LOVE JAKE PAUL” on his middle finger as part of a virtual agreement.

Jake Paul surely has the power to land heavy and much cleaner compared to Woodley but it seems he may not have the power to knock the former UFC Champion out. In their last fight, we saw Paul landing clean straights and uppercuts which never did any damage to Woodley but worked in his favor to take some points off his opponent. 

Paul will also anger Tyron with his quick movement and combos which will get Tyron to charge forward and like in the first fight we should be witnessing Paul simply time his jabs or hooks to stop Woodley’s charge and circle away to avoid any damage. 

On Saturday night, Paul has a chance to renew their rivalry and settle the score….or Woodley could upset him which possibly sets up a third fight in 2022.
