Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley weigh in ahead of rematch

Jake Paul knocked out Tyron Woodley in spectacular fashion on Saturday night, beating the former UFC champion for the second time in four months.

The knockout came in the sixth round of the pair’s boxing rematch in Tampa, Florida, as YouTube star Paul outdid his split-decision victory over Woodley from August, remaining undefeated in the process. Woodley, 39, was immediately more active than he was in the pair’s first fight, but Paul took the centre of the ring, worked his jab well and threw smart hooks to the body. Paul’s best moments came via double-jab set-ups, but the 24-year-old faced some adversity as he was cut on his forehead by an accidental elbow and Woodley landed two heavy right hands in quick succession – to the excitement of the Tampa crowd.

Woodley received a warning in the fourth round for throwing Paul to the canvas to break a clinch, perhaps out of frustration as the internet sensation neutralised more and more entries by grabbing hold of the wrestling specialist. Indeed, there was less and less boxing and increasingly more grappling on display as the fight passed its halfway mark, with those in attendance audibly growing frustrated by the lack of action. That all changed with 48 seconds left in the sixth round, however, as Paul took out Woodley with a sudden, vicious overhand right. Woodley fell face-first to the mat as the bout was waved off, Paul improving his professional boxing record to 5-0.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley – PAUL DISMISSES TOMMY FURY

“Tommy Fury is lucky that he wasn’t in there tonight, because Tyron’s way tougher and has that experience,” Paul said in the post-fight press conference.

“Tommy would’ve probably looked a lot worse than that, and that was pretty bad.”

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley – WOODLEY REACTS TO KO LOSS

“I thought I was winning, it wasn’t a landslide. I went back and I looked at [the KO], and I’m like: ‘Why the f*** did I drop my hand?

“I had both hands up, I was ready, I knew it was coming, I was ready to block the overhand. I don’t know if he delayed it, [but] even if he didn’t delay it, I don’t know why I dropped my hand.

“In this sport, it can take literally one mistake.”

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley - JAKE PAUL WINS BY KO

Jake Paul wasted no time in calling out two of the biggest names in the UFC moments after knocking out Tyron Woodley in sensational style in their rematch in Florida.

Paul connected with a stunning overhand right hook in the sixth round of the pair’s rematch as the YouTube star improved his professional record to 5-0.

Paul could only defeat Woodley thanks to a points decision in their first meeting in August and the former UFC champion was a late replacement for the injured Tommy Fury.

The 24-year-old Paul was set to face the undefeated Fury in a spectacular showdown but the Love Island star was forced to pull out of the fight earlier this month.

A further meeting between the pair looks likely, but Paul instead turned his attention to Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal - who were sat in the front row for the fight at the Amalie Arena in Tampa.

“And still undefeated, the Problem Child, Jake Paul!”

Here he is: “This is as real as it gets, just like my right hand. I told you, I was going to f*** him up. AND I F***** HIM UP.

“This guy is a legend and respect him for taking the fight on two weeks’ notice. Tommy Fury is a b**** for pulling out of the fight.

“It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had the job done. I was setting the punch up the whole fight. He didn’t see it coming. Like a lumberjack, timber.

“It’s got to be the moment of my life. Look at my year. Four fights, four knockouts. Masvidal and Nate Diaz - you are b***** for leaving this arena. I will f*** you up too. Anyone, anytime, any place.”

“I’m good,” says Woodley.
