Jake Paul demolishes Tyron Woodley with fourth straight knock-out

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul extended his perfect record after sending Tyron Woodley face-first into the canvas with a vicious knockout blow in the sixth round at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida, United States on Saturday (December 18).

In a largely uneventful bout, the only significant action of the first five rounds came in the third when Woodley’s elbow accidentally caught Paul on the head opening a deep cut. Two minutes into the sixth round, however, Paul delivered a right-hand blow that knocked Woodley out cold.

“I knew this punch was gonna land, so I put everything into it, everything, and, you know, I might be a lumberjack because he went timber,” said Paul after the fight.

Paul, 24, has beaten former UFC champion Woodley for the second time in four months, after his split-decision victory in August, and improved his professional boxing record to 5-0.

The 39-year-old Woodley replaced Paul’s scheduled opponent Tommy Fury, half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, after the Briton dropped out earlier this month with a broken rib and chest infection.

Paul has now knocked out all four of his opponents, having previously stopped fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA guard Nate Robinson and ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren and is now considering where his boxing career may go.

“It’s scary to try and put a cap on where this could go. The potential is unlimited here and it’s really up to me and my team how hard I want to work,” he said.

“Maybe when the time is right, I’ll go for the world championship belt, whatever belt that is – IBF, WBA, WBO, I don’t know.”
