Jake Paul’s Next Fight: Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds, Betting & Fight History

It seems as if the new sports cycle is just rotating between Paul brother fights until one of them gets viciously knocked out or becomes world champion. While the latter seems far less likely than the former, you never know.

So, it’s fitting that with Logan Paul’s fight against Floyd Mayweather set for tonight, we already have Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley to look forward to.

Jake Paul most recently knocked out an out of shape, ill-prepared Ben Askren in the first round of their boxing match. I’d even go as far as to say it look like Askren took a dive for a quick pay day. But that’s irrelevant now as Paul is moving on to fighting Tyron Woodley, the former UFC champion.

Who is Tyron Woodley?

For fans who aren’t familiar with the UFC, there was a time when Tyron Woodley was considered unbeatable and among the best pound-for-pound MMA fighters in the entire world. Woodley held the UFC welterweight title from 2016-2019, defending the belt four times before eventually being defeated by current title holder Kamaru Usman.

But, let’s not pretend like Woodley is some world-renown striker.

Tyron Wodley’s bread and butter is and always has been grappling. In 16 UFC fights, Woodly has finished five fights with his striking ability and one came via a leg kick.

Woodley was a two-time All-American wrestler at the University of Missouri. His striking is certainly a step up from the likes of Ben Askren, but Tyron Woodley is not an elite puncher.

Also, at 39 years old, Woodley is at the end of his career and declining fast. He’s lost four straight UFC fights and hasn’t won since September of 2018.

Tyron Woodley’s Record

Tyron Woodley is 19-7-1 in his 27-fight MMA career. He has never fought in a professional boxing match so Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley will be his first.

Jake Paul Fight History

It’s a little bit of a different story when we look at Jake Paul’s fight history and how they impact Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds.

Paul has fought professionally exactly three time. He seems to be taking the fight game seriously, but he didn’t start boxing until a few years ago and is miles behind other fighters his age. That is the main reason he’s spent the early part of his career fighting people with no boxing experience.

Jake Paul is yet to fight a person who he isn’t serving as their first ever opponent in a boxing ring. Ben Askren actually may have been an easier fight than his bout against Nate Robinson, where he delivered a thunderous KO.

His lack of experience is the exact reason why we don’t see him fighting guys like Tommy Furry or other accomplished strikers. If he was to get in the ring with someone with experience, he would be made short work of. So, we see him fighting guys with no boxing experience and coming in as the favorite, as has been reflected in Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds.

Jake Paul’s Record

Jake Paul is 3-0-0 in his three-fight career. He's finished all three fights early, with only his fight against Nate Robinson making it out of the first round.

No. Result Record Opponent Type Round, time Date
3 Win 3–0 Ben Askren TKO 1 (8), 1:59 Apr 17, 2021
