Odds as of August 25th

This is a fight pitting someone who is younger and training more specifically to boxing in recent years. But he’s clashing with a man who has well over a decade of combat competition experience to his credit and at a world championship level.

This marks a bit of a full-circle moment for Tyron Woodley as he began carving his MMA name out in Strikeforce which broadcasted on Showtime. As Woodley changes combat disciplines and returns to fighting under the Showtime banner, there’s the chance for a fresh coat of paint to be applied on him.

Jake Paul Gambling Favorite to Win Fourth Pro Fight

Paul has shown some basic mechanics that have served him to be effective so far (ie/well-timed feints, an ability to spear the body to then see up a big head strike through the guard, etc).

Four straight stoppages through his amateur and professional bouts, The Problem Child has been building up his boxing resume. Jake Paul took down Ben Askren with a first-round KO in his most recent fight. He also knocked out Nate Robinson in the second round on the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr undercard.

Woodley has been training with Floyd Mayweather ahead of this prizefight. Working with one of this generation’s best in an effort to make the smoothest transition and most immediate impact into the newer space.

Paul has been getting in time with some hard-working pugilists in his Puerto Rico camps and is sparring high-level pros.

Tyron Woodley’s Pro Boxing Debut

While Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley were Mizzou wrestling teammates years back, do not presume that these men have the same striking acumen.

The Chosen One is demonstrably devastating with the hands, and this is something to still be mindful of despite Woodley’s recent success drought as of late.

Woodley has been scoring KO victories with his hands since those aforementioned Strikeforce days and even captured the UFC world welterweight championship with his punching prowess.

The question marks start popping up in terms of Woodley’s sophistication with stringing together combinations. As he has historically favored pawing out to eventually set up a bazooka of an overhand right. Let’s take a look at Jake Paul and Woodley’s height, reach, and other measurables ahead of fight night.

This contest has a lot of pugilistic parity and is more of a pick-em fight than many give it credit for. This despite the movement in recent months indicating Jake Paul is become more of a mounting favorite.

I see either Jake Paul winning via points/ decision or Tyron Woodley securing some form of a stoppage victory.

Ultimately, I think Woodley gets this one. As much as Paul has the edge in youth, size, and momentum, I still think Woodley has one more in the tank. One more emphatic performance to unleash.

Pick: Tyron Woodley (+155)
