How Paul vs. Woodley got booked

Jake Paul technically comes into this fight with a professional boxing record of 3-0. However, his three fights have been against first-time boxers.

He started in January 2020, with a second-round TKO of fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib. Paul followed that up with a highlight-reel KO of former NBA star Nate Robinson in November 2020.

Paul’s most recent outing was a first-round KO of former MMA star and Olympic wrestler Ben Askren in April.

Following the win over Askren, Woodley got into the mix. He’s one of Askren’s teammates in MMA.

And, like Paul’s other opponents, Woodley has never competed in a professional boxing match.

These two will be competing at 190 pounds, and the fight is scheduled for eight rounds.

Other oddsmakers also siding with Paul

Even though Woodley is Paul’s most legitimate opponent to date, oddsmakers are still siding with Paul in Saturday’s fight.

FoxBet also was offering draw odds at +2200.

Breaking down the Paul vs. Woodley fight

Although he isn’t well-liked, Paul has legitimate boxing skills at the level and competition against which he is competing. He clearly has knockout power.

The real question for this fight: How will he fair against someone with similar power?

Paul has booked fights that have largely been in his favor. Robinson was much smaller in height, and Askren was an MMA star for his long-term wrestling career. He was chided for having little striking ability.

Woodley, however, is a former UFC welterweight champion. He was 19-7 in his MMA career, with seven wins coming by KO.

Like Askren, Woodley was a collegiate wrestler. But he developed a strong standup game in the UFC. He isn’t the most technically sound, but has the punching power.

Paul will have a size advantage again at 6-foot-1, compared with Woodley’s 5-9. Paul also sports a 2-inch edge in reach.
