The fighting career of Jake Paul has been highly criticized through his first three professional boxing fights, perhaps rightfully so.

Jake Paul is still yet to fight someone with a single professional boxing fight under their belt. He’s 3-0, but hes gone into the ring against a YouTuber, an ex-NBA player and a wrestler. But, by all accounts, his next matchup against Tyron Woodley should be by far his toughest yet.

As a matter of fact, Colby Covington, who has fought and beaten Tyron Woodley and spent months trashing him publicly leading up to their fight, sat down with MMA expert James Lynch and predicted that Tyron Woodley would win by KO against Jake Paul.

“I think Woodley could do it,” Covington said to OddsChecker’s own James Lynch on Lynch’s YouTube channel “I think he could land a knockout punch and get it done. You know, I’ve had some guys in my gym… that have went to train with Jake Paul in Miami, and you know they’ve all kind of said the same information. That they went there and exposed him…”

Even though Colby Covington seems confident that Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley will lead to a Woodley KO, oddsmakers aren’t so sure. The latest Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley odds still have Jake Paul as the favorite to win and move to 4-0.

Who is Jake Paul?

There are still some fight fans that may not know who Jake Paul is. So, if you fall into that category, Jake Paul is a YouTube star that has decided that he’s going to try and take boxing seriously and become one of the best boxers in the world.

The jury is still out if that’s and attainable goal, as he had never boxed until a few years ago, but the 24-year old seems to be taking it seriously.

Paul is the younger brother of Logan Paul, who just fought an exhibition match against Floyd Mayweather. Unlike his broker, Jake Paul’s match against Tyron Woodley will be fully sanctioned, not an exhibition match.

Jake Paul has had a somewhat checkered past. He’s been in the news for partying, over-the-top behavior and scamming his followers, among other things.

Who is Tyron Woodley?

At one point, Tyron Woodley was considered one of the best mixed martial artists in the entire world. The 39-year old native of Ferguson, Mississippi started his MMA career with a 19-3-1 record and was the UFC welterweight champion, successfully defending his title four times.

But, that all came to an end recently. Woodley lost to current welterweight title holder Kamaru Usman, a loss that began a free fall as he was defeated in four straight UFC fights, effectively ending his MMA career.

Woodley, while extremely accomplished, was never known for his striking. Tyron Woodley is an elite-level grappler as a former tow-time All-American at the University of Missouri.
