If we’re going to break down Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds, it’s important to know exactly what we’re going to see when they step into the ring.
Tyron Woodley has 27 career UFC fights. He is no stranger to the fight game and, unlike Ben Askren, he’s not a completely inept striker when it comes to throwing punches.
Still, Woodley is far from a pure striker. Tyron Woodley got into combat sports as a wrestler. Woodley wrestled at the University of Missouri, where he was a two-time All-American and Big-12 champion.
His background is rooted in grappling, which he won’t be able to use in a boxing match. So, while it may shock some to see Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds favoring Jake Paul, he may actually be the better striker.
Still, Woodley has seven career KO wins. His most recent one coming in 2016 against Robbie Lawler. As of right now, Tyron Woodley is a +100 underdog against Jake Paul, odds that imply a 50% chance he wins.
With every fight, Jake Paul continues to earn more and more respect in the boxing world, even if he’s yet to fight a boxer with a single fight to his name prior to their bout.
Jake Paul’s first ever professional fight came in 2020, against a fellow YouTuber. Since then, he’s fought former NBA player Nate Robinson and former UFC fighter Ben Askren.
He’s unbeaten but has never really had to fight another fighter. Most seem to think that Tyron Woodley will be his first actual test.
Paul has shown quick hands and power, but how quick will he look when he’s not fighting an out-of-shape Ben Askren? One thing working in his favor is the fact that Tyron Woodley is going to have to gain about 20 pounds in order to get up to Paul’s weight, something that will likely slow him down considerably.
The latest Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds have Jake Paul as a -139 favorite, implying a 58.2% chance he wins on August 28.
