Jake Paul Scored Rematch KO Over Tyron Woodley Saturday

Jake Paul Scored Rematch KO Over Tyron Woodley Saturday

For five rounds of their rematch Saturday night in Tampa, FL former UFC champ Tyron Woodley was again showing that he could take a punch from Youtube/social media sensation, Jake Paul. However, the sixth round came and so too did a thunderous right from Paul that ended things immediately.

Re-live the one punch KO in the sixth round that has put Paul to 5-0 as a professional fighter here,

“This is as real as it gets, just like my right hand,” Paul told Showtime in the ring.

“It was a tough fight. The blood was getting in my eye from when he elbowed me. I got the job done and I knew it would happen like that. I was setting up the shot the whole fight and he didn’t see it coming.”

The blood that Paul was referring to came from an elbow to the right side of his forehead in the third round. Paul continued to fight through blood streaming down his forehead and face, as the fight continued. Still, he pressed on and eventually, he scored the big KO.

The bout was a short notice rematch of Paul’s decision win over Woodley in August. This, after Paul’s original opponent England’s Tommy Fury withdrew citing injury/illness. Woodley took the fight on just over two weeks notice.

Earlier in the fight, Woodley was having success with short right right hands, including stunning Paul for a moment and backing him to the ropes. However, the shots were few and far between, as the bout wore on.

Eventually, Paul dipped to his right and landed the massive right to the side of Woodley’s head. He fell face first and the referee waved off without a count.

As for what might be next? Paul made clear later in the post fight press conference that he will take a break,

“I have been going non-stopped for 13 months. I am exhausted. I want to spend Christmas with my family. I will unplug and then figure out what’s next.”

One thing is for sure, Paul drew a paid crowd of over 18,000 at the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning and likely a strong PPV audience for Showtime. So, what’s next will likely be another high profile fight in the first half of 2022.
