Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds: Jake Paul’s Odds To Win Getting Worse
Love him or hate him, Jake Paul isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. So, you might as well get used to him be a real boxer in sanctioned events.
Next up for Jake Paul is yet another fighter who has never had a professional boxing matching in former UFC champion Tyron Woodley. And, according to the latest Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds, Paul’s chances of winning and improving to 4-0 are getting worse as we approach the fight.
So, what exactly do the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds look like? Well, let’s break them down ahead of their August 29 superfight in Cleveland, Ohio. After we take a look at Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds, fight records and how they got here, you can tell me who you think is going win.
The name Tyron Woodley is a familiar one to fans of combat sports. Woodley was, for a time, considered to be one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC. Woodley’s UFC career is far superior to that of Jake Paul’s last opponent, Ben Askren, which lasted just three fights. So, why do Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds favor Paul?
Let’s go back to 2018. Tyron Woodley is 19-3-1, he’s just defeated Darren Till via submission and he’s on top of the UFC welterweight division and one of the very best fighters in the company. Woodley takes seven months between that fight to take on an up and coming fighter at the time by the name of…Kamaru Usman.
Kamaru Usman defeats Woodley, takes his belt and sends Tyron Woodley’s UFC career into a downward spiral. Woodley loses four straight fights and is subsequently out of the UFC. So, he does what any veteran fighter does, he picks a fight with Jake Paul.
Now, while Woodley had an amazing career it’s important to remember he was never an elite striker. Woodley is a former two-time All-American wrestler at the University of Missouri. He is and was known for his grappling. And if he’s going to prove the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds wrong, he’s going to need to be able to strike in the boxing ring.
Jake Paul’s YouTube/acting career would take longer to break down than his boxing career. But, it’s important to acknowledge that in just a few years, Paul has gone from a joke in boxing circles to someone that a lot of people are starting to take seriously.
Paul trains night and day, is in great shape and is committed to the fight game. Does he have tons of ring experience? Obviously not, and I think that’s why you see him ducking actual fighters like Tommy Fury. But, Jake Paul has good hands and power.
In his first ever boxing match, Jake Paul fought fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in January of 2020. Paul Won by first round TKO.
Jake Paul’s second fight is when the sports world really began to take notice. Paul fought former NBA star Nate Robinson and delivered a vicious highlight-reel KO. Next up he defeated Ben Askren and here we are, with Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds favoring Paul.
Not only is Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley happening, but it’s scheduled to be a fully sanctioned boxing match, unlike his brother’s exhibition match against Floyd Mayweather earlier this year.
