Jake Paul has reportedly agreed to lock horns with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a boxing bout. The news was first broken by Mike Coppinger of Boxing Insider, although the fight hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.

‘; var MOB_3_PARAMS = {}; var options = { threshold: 0 , rootMargin: “200% 0px 200% 0px” }; var dynamicAdsObserver = new IntersectionObserver(function(entries) { entries.forEach(function (oneEntry) { if (oneEntry.isIntersecting) { dynamicAdsObserver.unobserve(oneEntry.target); var domId = oneEntry.target.id; googletag.cmd.push(function() { requestBidsForAdSlot(MOB_3_PARAMS[“slot”], domId); }); } }); }, options); function loadAdUnit(input) { input.playerContainer.innerHTML += AD_UNIT_MARKUP; var adContainer = input.playerContainer.querySelector(“.mob_300250_3_ad”); googletag.cmd.push(function() { var slot = initAdUnit(“Mob_300250_3”); if (!slot) return; var div = document.createElement(‘div’); div.id = slot.getSlotElementId(); adContainer.appendChild(div); if (input.userCountry == “IN”) { requestBidsForAdSlot(slot, div.id); return; } MOB_3_PARAMS[“slot”] = slot; var adElementDiv = document.getElementById(adUnits[“Mob_300250_3”].div); dynamicAdsObserver.observe(adElementDiv); }); } return loadAdUnit; })();

Minutes later, Jake Paul tweeted to say that a fight announcement was coming.

Paul recently signed with Showtime Sports after having a successful run with Triller Fight Club. His last fight was a first-round KO victory over former UFC fighter Ben Askren. While Askren is a wrestler who was never known for his striking skills, Tyron Woodley is a different beast.

Keeping in line with his blueprint so far, Jake Paul has picked an opponent who is significantly shorter than him and has a disadvantage in terms of reach.

Tyron Woodley is 5’9″ tall, with a 74-inch reach. ‘The Chosen One’ competed in the UFC’s welterweight division, which is 170 pounds, or 77kgs.

Does Jake Paul stand a chance against Tyron Woodley?

Tyron Woodley transitioned to MMA from wrestling, similar to Paul’s last opponent and Woodley’s former teammate Ben Askren. The feud between Woodley and Paul began backstage at the Askren vs. Paul fight.

Obviously, Jake Paul likes his chances against wrestlers because their striking game isn’t very strong. Tyron Woodley is not Ben Askren, though. ‘The Chosen One’ has knocked out multiple opponents in his UFC career, including the likes of ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler.

That said, Woodley’s striking is limited, and the same has been exposed by his last few opponents in the UFC. If Tyron Woodley truly wants to dominate the fight against Jake Paul, the former UFC welterweight champion will have to add more weapons to his striking arsenal.

‘The Chosen One’ has ferocious power and could hand Jake Paul his first professional boxing loss. Paul is currently 3-0 in pro boxing. Woodley, however, will make his pro boxing debut against Jake Paul if the fight does get confirmed.
